Quick save and a Beauty! L.A. Kings netminder’s miraculous stop

- March 30th, 2014

“Kick save and a beauty” became “Quick save and a beauty,” Saturday night at the Staples Center when Los Angeles Kings netminder Jonathan Quick pulled off what should win save of the year.

With his team up a pair on the visiting Winnipeg Jets with less than a minute remaining, Quick’s stick appeared to get caught in traffic, throwing him off balance.

When Blake Wheeler saw Quick struggling to hug his post, the Winnipeg Jets forward put the puck on net.

With traffic in front, Quick lifted his back leg to kick the puck away from danger.

Save of the year? More like save of the decade?

The Kings went on to win 4-2.
