Quick, 27, has missed L.A.'s past 24 after sustaining a lower-body injury on Nov. 12 against the Buffalo Sabres. He traveled and practiced with the team during the recent four-game road trip through the Midwest. The Kings returned home Saturday to host the Vancouver Canucks.
Quick has played in 16 games this season and has a 10-5-0 record, one shutout, a 2.35 goals-against-average and a .905 save percentage. Earlier this week he was named to the U.S Olympic Team for the second time.
It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.
