Jonathan Quick Slips A Fan An Autograph From The Bench

This is from a Kings' preseason game in Las Vegas on Oct. 4, with the video only posted online this weekend. It shows L.A. goalie Jonathan Quick surreptitiously passing an autograph to a fan through the glass during pregame introductions, which is a pretty cool thing for a guy seconds from taking the ice to do. » 10/13/14 12:29pm 10/13/14 12:29pm

Jonathan Quick Saved Everything And Salvaged Some Respect

The odd thing about this series, where L.A. finds itself up 3-0, is that it's never felt particularly dominant. The Kings have clearly been the better team, but Games 1 and 2 could have gone either way, and everything save the scoreboard says last night's 3-0 win was fortuitous. » 6/10/14 9:45am 6/10/14 9:45am

The Stanley Cup Will Come Down To The Best Team Vs. The Best Player

The Rangers and Kings are in the Stanley Cup Final because of depth, since this is not basketball, where a small number of very good or great individual players can drag a team to postseason success. You need top-flight players to win championships in hockey, obviously, but just as necessary are lower-level players… » 6/04/14 2:49pm 6/04/14 2:49pm

Jonathan Quick Makes An Outstanding Kick Save While On His Stomach

Los Angeles goalie Jonathan Quick—or more accurately, his right leg—prevented a sure Winnipeg goal near the end of Saturday's Jets-Kings game. » 3/30/14 11:31am 3/30/14 11:31am

T.J. Oshie Beats Russia In 4-3 Shootout

T.J. Oshie's four shootout goals proved the difference as the United States beat Russia 3-2 (4-3). It took eight rounds of penalty shots before the right combination of Jonathan Quick save and Oshie goal could be properly paired up. » 2/15/14 10:27am 2/15/14 10:27am

Here's Why Russia's Third Goal Was Disallowed

Russia took a 3-2 lead in the third period after Fyodor Tyutin's blue-line goal, until they didn't. The goal was reviewed by officials, and because USA goalie Jonathan Quick slipped and knocked the net off of one of its moorings ever so slightly—look at the bottom of the left post—Tyutin's score was disallowed.… » 2/15/14 9:55am 2/15/14 9:55am

Here's Jonathan Quick's Olympic Mask

We've already seen Ryan Miller's America-out-the-ass mask for the Sochi games. Now we've got Jonathan Quick's. Patriotic? Meh. Shiny? Oh my, yes! » 1/29/14 1:26pm 1/29/14 1:26pm

Jonathan Quick Scored A Power Play Goal On Himself

The last time we checked in on Jonathan Quick in these parts, he was saying "fuck" repeatedly. He probably did that again tonight, after a blunder handed the Rangers a third-period shorthanded goal that actually required zero hands. » 10/08/13 12:59am 10/08/13 12:59am

With A Little Luck And A Gigantic Glove Save, The Kings Carry On

Hockeywood is halfway to putting out a sequel, and the script looks a lot like last year's: timely goals from unlikely sources, defense that doesn't take a breather, and a Conn Smythe-caliber campaign from Jonathan Quick in net. » 5/29/13 9:11am 5/29/13 9:11am

KCAL Went Live To The Kings' Stanley Cup Celebration Just In Time For…

Jonathan Quick was too fast for TV censors today as the goalie's speech at the L.A. Kings' Stanley Cup celebration in Staples Center featured at least three instances of "fuck." » 6/14/12 6:45pm 6/14/12 6:45pm

The Goat, The Goalie, And Another Easy Win For The Best Hockey Team In…

Drew Doughty spent the last 10 seconds of the 2011-2012 NHL season standing around and doing nothing. As the Devils made a token effort along the boards in the Kings zone, and as the Kings made a similarly token effort to chip the puck out, Doughty stood on the edge of the crease, never leaving his goalie's side. With… » 6/12/12 11:35am 6/12/12 11:35am

One More Clueless L.A. Media Moment: "Kings Goalie Jonathan Swift"

The Stanley Cup itself will be at the Staples Center tonight, and the Kings look all but unstoppable. (Up 3-0, Kings merchandise is flying off the shelves, because L.A. is filled with more bandwagoners per capita than any other North American city.) You'd think by now the local media would have gotten to know… » 6/06/12 10:00am 6/06/12 10:00am

Can Anyone Stop The Los Angeles Kings?

The NHL playoffs have been their usual chaotic selves so far, with dashes of weird discipline and whatever the hell the Penguins-Flyers series is thrown in for good measure. There are just two impending sweeps: Penguins-Flyers, and Kings-Canucks. We can understand why the Flyers have spanked the Pens—Marc-Andre Fleury… » 4/16/12 1:20pm 4/16/12 1:20pm

Goalie Stops Puck With Telekinesis

After Jonathan Quick appeared to get beat Monday night, the puck decided to take an unscheduled detour out of the goalmouth. For all we know, this is some involved viral marketing for the X-Men reboot. But it's probably more to do with Los Angeles's notoriously crappy ice surface. » 3/23/11 10:57am 3/23/11 10:57am

US Hockey Team Denied Inspiration From '80s Beer Slogan

Because the Olympics just can't handle the in-your-face raditude of America, fuck yeah, they're forcing Ryan Miller and Jonathan Quick to cover up parts of their masks, before the blow the minds of the staid people of Vancouver. » 2/16/10 10:00pm 2/16/10 10:00pm
