Moment of `frustration’ for Quick

Did Jonathan Quick, last night, finally show a little bit of frustration over the Kings’ lack of scoring? Less than a minute after Colorado scored a power-play goal to take a 3-1 lead, Quick got a slashing penalty. Quick channeled a small bit of his inner Hextall and took a whack at Daniel Winnik as he started up the ice. Even in the worst of times, Quick has never publicly criticized any teammates. Was his penalty simply a moment of anger at Winnik, or did it signify a bit more? Darryl Sutter was asked about the penalty…

SUTTER: “I think Winnik clipped him right before that. It was probably more frustration, retaliation.’’

Question: That’s the first time he’s ever really shown frustration…

SUTTER: “That’s what I was asking, because it was the first time I’d seen it. That’s what I was asking the coaches, because it was the first time I’d seen it.’’

Question: Do you have any concern about that?

SUTTER: “Winnik clipped him. He’s a competitor. I think I’ll take that.’’
