Quick, Kings blank Blackhawks

Makes 32 saves for 41st NHL shutout, most ever by U.S.-born goalie

by Brian Hedger / NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- Jonathan Quick downplayed the record he set with a 32-save shutout at United Center on Monday, but it put him in uncharted territory.

Quick, whose performance helped the Los Angeles Kings to a 5-0 win against the Chicago Blackhawks, earned his 41st NHL shutout to pass Frank Brimsek and John Vanbiesbrouck for most by a U.S.-born goalie.

"It was a lot tougher for [Vanbiesbrouck] to get shutouts when he was playing," said Quick, who grew up a Vanbiesbrouck fan in Milford, Conn. "It's a situation where it's cool. It's a team effort, too, to get a shutout. You're thankful to all your teammates over the years, but at the same time, I think his shutouts are probably worth two of mine. So, take it with a grain of salt."
