A very Quick note about an upcoming Kings goaltending record

There were times over the years that it seemed as if Rogie Vachon’s franchise record of 171 victories by a goaltender would never be threatened by another King. The names and faces came and went and Vachon’s mark, set over 389 games between 1971 and ’78, stood the text of time. But now Jonathan Quick is set to tie the mark once thought to be unreachable. Quick can match Vachon with a victory Thursday over the Toronto Maple Leafs. Quick has won 170 games in 323 games, benefiting from far better teams than the ones that played in front of Vachon. Quick also has won a Stanley Cup championship with the Kings in 2012, and the Conn Smythe Trophy as the MVP of the ’12 playoffs. Vachon’s teams never came close to the Stanley Cup Final, but it wasn’t for any shortcomings on his part.
