Quick might finish it off

As posted earlier, Jonathan Quick will get the start in goal tomorrow night against Anaheim. Terry Murray initially planned to have Quick and Jonathan Bernier split the season-ending, back-to-back, home-and-home series against Anaheim, but as Murray often says about his goalie plans, they’re written in pencil. The Kings are taking seriously the idea of finishing fourth in the Western Conference and getting home-ice advantage in the first round, so Murray indicated today that if fourth place is still in play going into Saturday’s game, he would consider starting Quick in both games against the Ducks.

MURRAY: “Quick will play tomorrow, and then I will evaluate as we move through this. There’s so much on the line right now. We’re going to keep going with what I feel is our best lineup, so Quick will play tomorrow and then we’ll see how things shake out after that. … We want home ice. We want to keep winning, keep this thing going. We want to start at home, and Quick will play in that critical game tomorrow.”
