Through two periods against the St. Louis Blues, things were going pretty pretty good for the Los Angeles Kings: Leading Game 2 of their Western Conference semifinal 5-1 thanks to two goals by Anze Kopitar; goals by Jeff Carter, Mike Richards and Justin Williams; and a 3-point night for Dustin Brown.
On a late second period power play, the Blues thought they had cut into that lead. But when things are going good … well, just look at what happened when the puck trickled behind Jonathan Quick:
"Boy, you talk about gettin' the breaks" … no kidding. The puck came to rest directly on the goal line, and neither Quick nor a Kings defenseman nor a Blues stick was able to poke into the net. The War Room backed up the call on the ice, and it was "no goal."
We've said it before, we'll say it again: Jonathan. Quick. Is. A. Jedi.
