Quick turnaround

It will be interesting to see how the Olympic break impacts the players, those who played and those who didn’t. Jonathan Quick is right in the middle. He was on the United States Olympic team, but didn’t appear in a game. The question is, will be he rested or rusty? It won’t take long to find out, as Terry Murray said he intends to start Quick in goal tomorrow against Dallas…

MURRAY: “I have a little bit of concern for it, absolutely. I know that when you go to these kinds of tournaments, there’s not a lot of quality practice time, especially when you’re the third man on the totem pole. And the U.S. ended up playing four or five afternoon games, so you don’t have the morning skates to get the work. So I have a bit of concern, but I’m going to put that aside and just put him in net and get him going again. It’s a big month for us and he’s our key guy, and we have to get him back into the game. Physically and mentally, I think he’s ready to go. It’s just a matter of getting his game conditioning going, and that’s only going to happen with playing games.”

More to come after the flight to Dallas…
