Jonathan Quick 'fine' after scare
More from ESPN.com
Two teams from opposite sides of the continent, carrying different expectations and having to ford different streams of adversity, will meet in the Stanley Cup finals, ESPN.com's Scott Burnside writes. Story
LOS ANGELES -- Kings star goalie Jonathan Quick took a shot up around the collar-bone/neck area Tuesday in practice and seemed to be in discomfort but said he's fine heading into Wednesday night's Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals.
"Yup,'' Quick answered when asked if he was fine after taking the shot from teammate Kyle Clifford and then leaving, near the end of practice.
"He's fine, no big deal,'' Clifford said.
Coach Darryl Sutter also seemed surprised to take a question on Quick's health.
"Jonathan is a tough guy," Sutter said after practice. "He's probably the first guy out of the room.''
