Jonathan Quick sets Kings record with 172nd win in 4-0 victory over Panthers

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Jonathan Quick broke the Kings record for wins by a goalie, making 24 saves in his fifth shutout of an injury-hampered season as Los Angeles beat the Florida Panthers 4-0 on Saturday.

Trevor Lewis, Mike Richards, Alec Martinez and captain Dustin Brown scored for the Kings, who completed their five-game homestand with back-to-back wins after three straight one-goal defeats.

Quick earned his 172nd career victory and surpassed Rogie Vachon, one of five players to have his uniform number retired by the club along with Marcel Dionne, Dave Taylor, Wayne Gretzky and Luc Robitaille. The shutout was the 30th of Quick's career, two shy of Vachon's franchise mark.

Vachon was in the arena for the record-breaker.

Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
