Kings lose Jonathan Quick to a ‘lower-body injury’

Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick looks to have succumbed to the growing list of pad-shortened goalies who've suffered groin injuries, getting dinged in overtime during the Kings' 3-2 OT loss to Buffalo, as noted by NHL.com--and you'll be able to watch the video after watching some sort of stupid 30-second commercial because NHL.com believes that you should have to watch a commercial a) before every video and b) after searching for a video, before watching another 30-second commercial before you can actually watch the video you searched for:

Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick left the game against the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday with 1:20 to play in overtime. He was replaced by Ben Scrivens.

Quick was in obvious discomfort when play was stopped with 1:20 remaining in OT. It appeared he sustained a lower-body injury sliding across the crease about 30 seconds earlier as the Sabres rushed toward the goal.

After briefly skating out of his crease during the stoppage, he went down to his knees, bringing the Kings’ trainer onto the ice. He went to the dressing room. Scrivens played the rest of the overtime and the shootout, in which the Sabres scored twice for a 3-2 victory.

A Kings spokesman said only that Quick was being evaluated.
