Here’s what Terry Murray had to say about the recent play of goalie Jonathan Quick, who must be happy to be in L.A. Quick is 2-4-1 in his last seven road games but has won three consecutive home games. For the season, Quick has an 18-12-2 record, a 2.58 goals-against average and a .909 save percentage. If that GAA holds up, it will be the lowest by a regular Kings goalie since 2003-04, when Cristobal Huet finished at 2.43 and Roman Cechmanek finished at 2.51.
MURRAY: “He’s really showing us a lot as an organization. From the time he joined the team in December, he has continued to show improvement. His work habits are good, and are excellent really, more than very good. The instinctive part of his game, when it really gets heated up and the game gets to a high pace, his instinctive play comes out, and he’s been showing a nice talent level in that area. It’s not only the physical side but also the mental side. I’m very pleased with how his game has come along and how he has played. He seems to be hungry to succeed. He wants to play as many games as I give him, and we like what we’re seeing.”
