Terry Murray faces a question that a Kings coach rarely faces: which quality goalie to start? Jonathan Quick has been outstanding in his seven games, with a 1.59 goals-against average and a .943 save percentage, but Erik Ersberg was also strong (2.38, .903) before his groin injury, and Murray previously said that he wanted to see Ersberg in a game fairly soon. So who will it be tomorrow against the Ducks?
Question: I can’t imagine that Quick gave you any reason to take him out, but will you go back to him or give Ersberg a chance tomorrow?
MURRAY: “You know, I’m going to think about it today, and we have practice tomorrow. You’re correct in saying that I have no reason to take him out, based on performance. His play, in all the games he has been in, has been very good. But I’m also cognizant of the fact that Ersberg is back from an injury and that we’re going to need and want to have two goalies playing. They’re both young goalies that need to complement each other. I’m not going to lose sight of that.”
