Jonathan Quick is an excellent goalie, but that doesn’t mean he’s immune to committing embarrassing plays every once in a while. And, on Monday, Quick allowed one of the most embarrassing goals you will ever see.
The Kings were facing the New York Rangers and trailing 2-1 in the third period. They were on a power play early in the period and lost the faceoff. Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh got the puck and cleared it by dumping it off the boards. Quick went to play the puck off the boards, but he lost control of his stick and allowed the puck to deflect off his pads and into his own net.
It was a truly pathetic goal allowed by the former Conn Smythe Trophy winner, who stopped 25 shots in the 3-1 loss. On the bright side, nothing Quick does for the rest of his career will ever be as bad as that.
