Jonathan Quick G LA 5 Hrs

Quick was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate and is in line to receive the start in goal Thursday against the Islanders, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

Quick has been stingy for the last few weeks, surrendering two or fewer goals in all but one of his last nine starts. During that stretch, he's come away as a winner in five of those outings while pitching two shutouts. The Kings remain on the outside looking in for a playoff spot at the moment, and figure to ride Quick heavily the rest of the way.

Quick stopped 34 of 36 shots Tuesday in a 4-2 victory over the Rangers.

He held strong for his second win in as many days, turning in a quality outing for a much-needed victory. Quick's play has still been prone to hot and cold streaks, but he'll need to stay hot down the stretch as the Kings try to fight their way into the playoffs.

Quick led the Kings on the ice for warmups and will be in the crease for Tuesday's game against the Rangers, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

Quick was whipped for four goals on 26 shots back on Jan. 8 in his first matchup with the Rangers since last season's Stanley Cup Finals. With the Kings finding themselves four points back from the final wild-card spot out West heading into Tuesday's match, the team will need Quick to be sharp the rest of the way to even have a shot at reclaiming Lord Stanley's trophy. Quick has delivered some uneven play at times this season, but his overall production (31-19-12, 2.27 GAA, .916 save percentage) remains strong.

Quick appears to be on track to start Tuesday's game against the Rangers, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

Quick, who stopped 19 of 20 shots in Monday's 3-1 win over New Jersey, thus appears poised to take aim Tuesday at a Rangers squad that has won seven of eight games and is coming off a 7-2 victory over the Ducks on Sunday.

Quick stopped 19 of 20 shots in Monday's 3-1 win over the Devils.

Quick wasn't heavily tested in this one, but it was good enough to collect just his second win in his last five outings. The 29-year-old is in the midst of a great stretch as he's allowed just 11 goals over his last eight starts even though the wins haven't been coming as easily during that span. Quick once again sports elite ratios, and as the Kings will turn to him almost every night as they fight for a playoff spot, owners should keep him rolling.

Quick is slated to start Monday's game against New Jersey, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

Quick -- who has only recorded one win over his last four decisions -- will square off against Cory Schneider on Monday, though it remains to be seen if the Kings stick with him for Tuesday's contest against the Rangers.

Quick suffered a tough loss to Vancouver on Saturday despite stopping 38 of 40 shots sent his way. The Canucks scored two empty-net goals, toppling the Kings 4-1.

This was a massive loss for L.A., who is trying their darndest to get back into one of the West's playoff spots. Quick is winless in three of his last four starts, but he's a proven winner who's going to do everything he can to get the Kings back to the postseason for a chance to defend their Stanley Cup. Keep him active.

Quick led the Kings on the ice for pregame warmups and will get the start in net Saturday afternoon against the Canucks, Elliott Teaford of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Quick submitted a 19-save shutout the last time he faced the Canucks back on Mar. 12. Over 24 career appearances against the boys from British Columbia, Quick is only 12-11-1, but owns impressive ratios (1.74 GAA, .933 save percentage). Eddie Lack will man the opposite net for the visitors.

Quick was the first goalie off the ice at Friday's practice, putting him on track to start Saturday against the Canucks, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

Since the Kings won't hold a morning skate ahead of the 4:00 ET puck drop Saturday, Quick likely won't be confirmed as the team's starter in goal until pregame warmups. Even so, it's hard to imagine the Kings turning away from their No. 1 netminder much the rest of the way, if at all. With Quick playing competently in his last several outings, he'll be used with a heavy hand as the Kings look to chase down one of the final two wild-card spots.

Quick wasn't particularly good in a marquee matchup with the Ducks on Wednesday, allowing three goals on 26 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss.

The good news for the Kings was that Justin Williams was able to get the game to overtime with his game-tying tally with less than five minutes remaining, securing a single point in the standings for the visitors. Quick has been much better lately, as this was just the second time in seven starts that he's allowed more than two goals. He's also gotten his ratios back to where owners expect them to be -- his .915 save percentage is identical to his career average, while his 2.29 GAA is remarkably close to his 2.28 mark -- so expect continued production from the American netminder in the final weeks of the season.
