Stanley Cup Finals 2012: For Jonathan Quick, Playing Against Martin Brodeur Is Special

Jonathan Quick is a great goaltender, and he's firmly established himself as one of the best young goalies in the league over his last several seasons with the Los Angeles Kings. But playing against Martin Brodeur, a future Hall of Famer, in the Stanley Cup Finals? That still has to be pretty awesome for the 26-year-old Connecticut native.

"Probably pretty special for Quicky to have a matchup against somebody like Martin Brodeur, considering his career and what he's done in this league," Kings forward Dustin Brown said. "Goaltender is an interesting position because it's probably the one one‑on‑one matchup you can really isolate. I'm sure it's special for Quicky."

Quick doesn't necessarily agree with the one-on-one focus thing, but he does agree that facing one of the most successful goalies to play the game is fun.

"You know, obviously it's pretty cool playing against him," Quick said. "But, like I said earlier, it's about the teams. It's the Kings versus the Devils. It's not an individual sport, obviously."
