Jonathan Quick gets up gimpy after OT save

Nov 12, 2013, 9:56 PM EDT

Considering the fact that it happened in overtime, it’s too early to panic. Still, some might, as Jonathan Quick left Tuesday’s Los Angeles Kings game with what seemed like an injury.

The Kings’ Twitter feed kept it vague and weird early on, as is their custom:

The 27-year-old goalie suffered from his second straight early-season lull, but he was playing lights-out in the short term coming into tonight’s game, with one goal allowed in his previous two games.

Ben Scrivens has his proponents – at least as a backup – but the Kings don’t have the same high-pedigree goalie behind Quick as they did last season with Jonathan Bernier, so the hope is this isn’t a nagging issue.

We’ll need to wait and see how serious this might be, then.

    Get well soon Jonathan. We need you and you are the best. Thanks for the signed Kings Jersey I got as season ticket holder fan of the game a week ago last Saturday. It’s great.

    GO KINGS GO!!

    He probably got hurt from not warming up enough for the OT -LOL! He basically was able to sleep through most of the game, I think the Sabres had 7 shots on goal after two periods!
    Extremely boring game for two periods, finally the third period had a little excitement. This Sabre’s team sucks! I can’t belileve the Kings let them in the game.

    And it has to be effecting the Sabre’s bottom line too, there were a lot of empty seats. When the announced the attendence at like 18,000 there was a lot of laughter and people yelling out “liar!”.

    TOGETHER FRIENDS, LET’S TAKE A KNEE …

    Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name.
    Your kingdom come,
    your will be done,
    on earth, as it is in heaven.
    Give us this day our daily bread,
    and forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
    And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from evil. Amen.

    say, if the Kings had won that shootout with Scrivens in, would he have gotten the win? I’d never seen that play out before and had Quick activated on my fantasy team, so it made me wonder.

    Martin Jones was very good in the second half of last year and has been excellent at the start of this year for Manchester. It’s a step up to go to the NHL but he’s probably close to ready. He struggles at the start of games but once he settles in, he seldom gives up bad goals. Manchester was supposed to be weak defensively this year and they are but Jones has made up for it. They’ve put him in a bunch of tough spots and he dealt with most of them.

    ibi – the goalie that’s in net when the game winning goal is scored gets the win/loss. So Scrivens got the loss even though he played less than two minutes and gave up no goals.
