Jonathan Quick will be back in net today for the Los Angeles Kings.
With a win, he’ll become the first Kings goaltender to post back-to-back 30 win seasons.
Although the Kings have found much success in Dallas the last few years, they’ve split the two previous games there this season – winning 5-2 in October and losing 2-1 in January. Jonathan Bernier was in goal for the loss.
As for Quick, he’s rolled to a 10-3-1 record in his last 14 games, with two of those losses coming on the Kings most recent homestand. Even including the blowout loss to Detroit two weeks ago though, he’s posted a 2.21 goals against average and .922 save percentage during that stretch.
He holds an 8-3-0 record against the Stars lifetime, including 4-1-0 in Dallas (with a 1.72 GAA).
Can Quick make some history and pick up the crucial two points today?
It’s almost game time…
