All Quick, all the time?

Last week, Terry Murray made it sound — without explicitly saying it — as though Jonathan Quick and Erik Ersberg would split the back-to-back games in goal. When Murray said yesterday that Quick would start against Vancouver, I asked if he had decided about the Edmonton game…

MURRAY: “Take it one game at a time here. I’ve thought a bit about it. I had a plan, a while ago, but I’ll just go one game at a time here.”

It’s just my opinion, but to me that sounds like code for, “If Quick plays well, I’m keeping him in.” Hard to argue, if Quick can match the great effort he gave against Dallas on Saturday. Here’s what Murray said about that game…

MURRAY: “His game (Saturday) night, that’s what I was used to seeing last year. He was on top of it, square, very alert, sharp, concentrating, all of those adjectives to describe his play. He was right on course. He was giving us the kind of game that we had to have, or else I don’t think we would have pulled that one out (Saturday) night. He was very good at the right time.”
