Kings vs. Wild: Jonathan Quick smashes stick into oblivion

New, comment

QUICK ANGRY. QUICK SMASH.

USA TODAY Sports

So Saturday was not the greatest night for Jonathan Quick. The Kings netminder gave up three goals to a Wild team that were on the back end of a back-to-back, and it's not even like he made it all that difficult for them.

But he had a chance to right everything in the shootout. Stop the Wild, win the game. Save the cheerleader, save the world. Instead he was beaten again by his Saturday nemesis: Matt Cullen.

Cullen had previously snapped a howitzer past Quick that the goalie had no chance on. This time, Quick had a chance. It looked like he knew Cullen was going 5-hole the whole way, but let Cullen beat him between the pads anyways.

Naturally, Quick blamed his stick.
