Jonathan Quick’s shutout help Los Angeles Kings get by Vancouver Canucks

No one saw this coming. The Vancouver Canucks lost to the Los Angeles Kings 1-0 in tonight’s game and are now down 3-0. Yeah, you’re not reading a typo. The Canucks are down 3-0. Dustin Brown scored the only goal of the game. Justin Williams and Anze Kopitar would get the assists on the goal. Jonathan Quick would stop all 41 shots fired his way today. His counterpart, Cory Schneider stopped 19 of 20 shots. The Canucks were the Presidents’ Trophy this year. The Canucks are trying to not just avoid losing to the #8 seed, but also are avoiding to be swept by the Kings. Since the merger of the Presidents’ Trophy, the #1 seed haven never been swept. The last time the winner of the Presidents’ Trophy lost was in the 2009-10 season. The Washington Capitals lost to the Montreal Canadiens in 7 games that year. There were lots of scrums and bad blood in today’s game. I think the Canucks need to find a way to score on Jonathan Quick. The Canucks are lacking firepower right now as they have scored 4 goals in their last 3 games. So hopefully the Canucks can win in Los Angeles on Wednesday and force game 5.
