Quick has seen it all against Detroit

Jonathan Quick has been to both extremes against the Detroit Red Wings this season. On Dec. 13, he had an outstanding 51-save shutout. Then, on Feb. 28, he finished the game on the bench after he allowed six goals on 24 shots as part of a 7-4 Detroit victory. Quick gets the call tonight, and although Terry Murray indicated that Jonathan Bernier will continue to get work during this road trip, the coach agreed with the though that the Kings would love to see Quick “grab a hold” of the goaltending situation with some strong performances going forward…

MURRAY: “That’s exactly what we need here, quite honestly, is to grab a hold of it. That’s exactly the right way to describe it. That opportunity is going to be presented. I’m going to keep going, as we get into this trip, with both goaltenders playing, but on the other side of it, it’s time to start looking at getting more games to Quicker. I want him to really embrace that opportunity. And he will. I have confidence that he will. There’s not doubt in my mind. It just gives him a little time, right now, to look at his game, to get a little rest on this road trip and to gather himself in and go back at it.”
