Kings' Quick says he's OK after scare at practice

LOS ANGELES -- Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick's preparations for the Stanley Cup Final were cut short Tuesday when he had to leave practice early after being struck by a shot in the area near his collarbone.

But Quick put to rest any questions about his availability for Game 1 against the New York Rangers on Wednesday at Staples Center (8 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, RDS) by quickly answering the first two questions in his media day press conference.

Did you get shaken up at the end of practice?

"No," Quick said.

Are you 100 percent?

"Yep," Quick said.

The shot that stunned Quick came from Kings forward Kyle Clifford toward the end of practice. Quick stayed near the bench area for a few minutes before leaving the ice.

Kings coach Darryl Sutter said there is no reason to be concerned about Quick's status for Game 1.

"Jonathan is a tough guy," Sutter said.

Quote of the Day

I just wanted to do something to take my mind off the shot and let me relax a little bit. It seemed like the fans liked it. I'm glad I was able to score.
