When Jonathan Quick wins, he wins big.
Last year, the readers of MayorsManor voted him the Kings’ Player of the Month twice. In October 2010 he captured 51% of the votes and then went back-to-back, as 52% selected him the winner in November. For the remainder of the season the voting was much closer, with the average winner capturing only 37% of the total.
He got off to another phenomenal start this year, posting a record of 6-1-2 in October, including three shutouts, a 1.52 goals-against average and .947 save percentage.
Even so, Terry Murray was hoping for more…
“He’s had a great month,” the LA coach said. “I feel that if we would have come out of the road trip in Phoenix and Colorado, and we would have won those games, I think he’s probably the (NHL) Player of the Month. His numbers are tremendous, he’s had a great start to the year and has meant a lot to us in the early going. So, too bad we couldn’t have found a way to get it done for him. But, he’s playing well.”
