Jonathan Quick With A Great Start For The Kings

from Helene Elliott of the LA Times,

His 1.84 goals-against average and .936 save percentage rank among the league leaders. So does his total of seven wins….

Physical and mental stress took a toll on Quick late last season. He has looked and felt sharp, though he said he won’t know until January and February whether he will benefit from getting fewer starts.

“I do feel a bit better out there. I will admit that,” he said. “But I do think it’s the system that we’re playing in the defensive zone. Our penalty kill is playing really well. We’ve got guys blocking shots, doing a great job in front of the net. I’m getting a ton of help and it’s making my life a lot easier. I think a lot of it is numbers, and wins are showing how well we’re playing in the defensive zone.”
