Quick named NHL’s second star
Jonathan Quick has been named the NHL’s second star for the week ending on January 19. The award has now been won by all three goaltenders to appear in a game for the Los Angeles Kings this season. Ben Scrivens was named the first star of the week of November 11-17 and Martin Jones was named the second star of the week of December 9-15.
From the NHL’s release:
Quick posted a 2-0-1 record with a 0.97 goals-against average, .967 save percentage and one shutout to backstop the Kings (29-14-6, 64 points) to five out of a possible six points. He made 28 saves in a 1-0 victory over the Vancouver Canucks Jan. 13 to earn his second shutout of the season and the 27th of his NHL career, five shy of Rogie Vachon for the club record. Quick followed that up with another 28-save performance in a 4-1 win over the St. Louis Blues Jan. 16. He closed the week by making 33 saves, plus another two in the shootout, in a 3-2 loss to the Detroit Red Wings Jan. 18. The 27-year-old Milford, Conn., native has compiled a 14-6-2 record with a 2.05 goals-against average and .918 save percentage in 23 appearances this season, including a 4-1-2 mark with a 1.40 goals-against average and .946 save percentage since being activated from the injured reserve list Jan. 4.
The league’s first star was awarded to Tampa Bay’s Martin St. Louis, who scored four times against San Jose on Saturday as part of a five-goal, eight-point week. The third star was awarded to Chicago’s Corey Crawford, who went 2-0-1 with a 2.22 goals-against average and .916 save percentage.
