NHL.com compared the remaining four goaltenders to the blockbuster movie the Avengers. Jonathan Quick adequately dons “Captain America,” for his eloquent verbiage… or lack there of…
An interview with:
THE MODERATOR: Questions for Jonathan.
Q. There was a period of time there early in the second period where
you had to make several back-to-back stops. The game is still 1-0 at that
point. You get the goal. How important is that sequence for your game?
JONATHAN QUICK: Obviously I wanted to get off to a better start than
I did last game there. You know, in order to win on the road, you need
your goalie to make a few saves.
For the most part we did a great job of keeping a lot of the chances
to the outside, clearing out rebounds and stuff like that. When they
needed me, I was able to make the save.
Q. Early in the game, fans were yelling, Shoot, when Morris got
close. Did you hear that?
JONATHAN QUICK: No.
Q. Coach Tippett said his team looked a little bit better in the
start of the first period, a little more energy than in Game 1. Did you
see it that way?
JONATHAN QUICK: They certainly created a couple more chances than
they did Game 1 first period. That’s the way the game works sometimes. We
outplayed them Game 1, leave the period tied.
Today it was a little more evenly played. You leave the first period
with a 1-0 lead, it’s the way it happens sometimes.
Q. Do you think you got under their skin?
JONATHAN QUICK: You know what, that’s part of the game, time of the
year. There’s going to be some chippy stuff going on. It’s going to
happen both ways. It’s just part of the game.
I don’t think we got under their skin or anything like that. These
guys won two rounds. You don’t win two rounds this time of year being able
to get rattled easily.
We know what to expect here coming into Game 3. We know they’re
going to bring their best. That’s all we’re looking at right now.
THE MODERATOR: Thanks, Jonathan.

The Kings are like fleas on the Coyotes back. The more you scratch at them the more vicious they will attack your surface until you’re reduced to pulsating welts of puss and scabs, yearning for the situation at hand to end sooner rather than later.
GO KINGS GO!
