Jonathan Quick G LA 11 Days
Quick was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate and is thus in line to start Wednesday against the Sharks, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Quick has dropped back-to-back games in overtime, but coach Darryl Sutter has to be encouraged by his strong showings in defeat, as he allowed just two goals on both occasions. With Martin Jones (back spasms) on IR and unable to push him for playing time, Quick will pick up his third straight start.

Quick stopped 21 shots but surrendered the game-winning goal to the Flames' Dennis Wideman in overtime to take a 2-1 loss.
Despite posting a save percentage over .900 for the second outing in a row, it still goes down as the fifth consecutive defeat for Quick. The goalie has been miserable in January with a 3.42 GAA and .861 save percentage, but he's at least shown some signs of turning the corner his last two times out. He's probably not an ideal goalie to keep in active lineups right now, though he's certainly not someone worth cutting in any format.

Quick was the first goalie off the ice at the Kings' morning skate and is thus on track to start Monday's game against the Flames, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

Quick gave up two goals on 31 shots in Saturday's shootout loss to the Ducks.
Although he played great against the Ducks, Quick incurred his fourth straight loss, pushing his record to 16-11-9 on the season. While he's been struggling of late, the 28-year-old's performance Saturday is hopefully a sign of things to come. He still holds a respectable .912 save percentage and 2.47 GAA on the year, but fantasy owners are left wanting more from the former Conn Smythe winner. He'll get back into the win column soon, so we wouldn't worry too much. Get him in your lineup, as we was excellent Saturday and should build off that performance.

Quick was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate and is thus in line to start Saturday's game against the Ducks, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Quick has been a disaster lately with a .819 save percentage over his last five appearances, but his spot atop the Kings' depth chart wouldn't seem to be in peril just yet. Backup Martin Jones scuffled while receiving his second consecutive start Wednesday, allowing three goals on 13 shots before getting the early hook. As a result of that performance and with Jones reportedly feeling under the weather Saturday morning, coach Darryl Sutter will turn the net back over to Quick with the hope he gets back on track against Anaheim.

Quick picked up the loss after relieving a struggling Martin Jones on Wednesday against the Devils. He surrendered two goals on seven shots.
Quick entered the game trailing 3-1 and immediately made things worse, surrendering the eventual game-winner to Mike Cammalleri less than a minute after replacing Jones. The goalie has been an utter mess thus far in January. Over five appearances (four starts), Quick has cobbled together a woeful 4.41 GAA and .819 save percentage. Keep him parked on the bench until he shows signs of turning things around.

Quick surrendered four goals on 25 shots in regulation, before giving up one goal in the shootout in Saturday's loss to the Jets.
That's back-to-back games Quick has given up four goals. With only one win in his last four games played, Quick is going through a rough patch right now. While he still holds a 16-10-8 record on the season, his rate stats continue to drop, with his save percentage now at .913 and his goals-against-average sitting at 2.44. He's too good not to rebound. Wait it out, as Quick is one of the best stoppers in the game. He'll come around.

Quick was the first goalie off the ice and is thus in line to make the start Saturday against the Jets, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.
Quick has looked far from an elite netminder for much of the last month, and things only appear to be getting worse for him. After getting rocked for three goals on nine shot attempts last Saturday against Nashville, Quick returned to the net Thursday, only to cede four goals on 26 shots in a Stanley Cup Finals rematch with the Rangers. Fortunately for Quick, backup Martin Jones' own recent struggles when called upon have prevented the No. 1 goalie from losing out on more starts.

Quick stopped just 22 of 26 shots in Thursday's loss to the Rangers.
The struggles continue for the netminder, who has managed a save percentage above .900 just twice in his last 10 turns. At this point, coach Darryl Sutter may have to seriously consider granting more starts to backup Martin Jones until Quick starts to smooth out the edges.
