It doesn’t take much to make Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick agitated on the ice.
We saw that in Wednesday night’s season-opening game between the Kings and the rival San Jose Sharks at SAP Center.
After Quick made a save in the first period — it later was ruled a goal — Sharks forward Joe Pavelski poked at the puck with his stick, and Quick took exception. The Kings netminder chased after Pavelski and tried to grab him. He also ended up grabbing Sharks forward Logan Couture.
It got worse for Quick. He picked up an injury later in the game, and Kings general manager Dean Lombardi told reporters his starting goalie could be out “a while.”
The Sharks ended up winning 2-1.
