Jonathan Quick, considered by many who follow the NHL to be the top goalie in the league, allowed five goals on only 28 shots before being yanked after two periods in the Kings' 6-3 loss to San Jose Thursday in Game 1 of their playoff round.
That was more goals in two periods than Quick gave up to the Sharks in three games of their playoff matchup last season. "I don't think we played very well in front of him," teammate Alec Martinez said in defense of Quick. "I think those goals were a byproduct of the team in front of him not playing well. It wasn't on Quickie. But obviously, he's one of the best goaltenders in the world and we have all the confidence in the world in him. He'll play really well Sunday."
