Going back to the goalies for a minute… Jonathan Quick has started 29 of the Kings’ 31 games this season, but if Monday’s game is any indication, the workload doesn’t appear to be getting to him. Quick looked sharp against the Flames, made a handful of outstanding saves and helped kill two big Calgary power plays in the third period.
Terry Murray was asked whether, as he made the decision to start Erik Ersberg against San Jose, he was concerned at all about a fatigue factor with Quick.
MURRAY: “No, I don’t see any fatigue. He was outstanding last night. That’s a big challenge, playing against the Calgary Flames and Kiprusoff at the other end, one of the premier goalies in the league. You’re digging in emotionally. It’s a great performance by him last night. So, no, I don’t see any fatigue, but I do see a lot of games in a short period of time. That’s what requires me to make this decision.”
