A couple other things… It was a tough night for Jonathan Quick. First, he suffered the overtime loss to Chicago. Then, shortly after the team got settled into its Dallas hotel, at approximately 2:30 a.m., Quick got word that he needed to return to Los Angeles to be with his wife. Terry Murray said he got a text from Quick at 3:30 a.m., and Quick caught the first-possible flight to L.A. this morning.
On a more humorous note, the highlight of today’s practice took place off the ice. The Kings couldn’t skate at American Airlines Center today because of tonight’s Taylor Swift concert. Players who skated in the optional practice had to dress at the arena and then bus to the practice rink. While players were stretching and riding stationary bikes in the arena hallway, Taylor Swift walked to her dressing room. A handful of players — and, um, one reporter — stood and stared as Swift turned into her dressing room and gave a chipper “Hi.”
