EL SEGUNDO, CA — During their 5-2 victory over the Florida Panthers at Staples Center in Los Angeles on November 18, Los Angeles Kings defenseman Matt Greene did something he had never done before.

Jonathan Quick Breaks LA Kings’ All-Time Win Record After 4-0 Victory Over Florida

AUDIO: Includes audio interview with Jonathan Quick and Rogie Vachon.


LOS ANGELES — In sports, breaking an individual record is often very rewarding and fulfilling for the player who sets the new record. But it is even more special when the player whose record was broken is present to share the moment. That was exactly the case on March 22, when the Los Angeles Kings defeated the Florida Panthers, 4-0, in front of a sell-out crowd of 18,118 fans during a matinee affair at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick earned his fifth shutout of the season, and the 30th of his National Hockey League career. Quick’s 172nd career regular season victory catapulted him ahead of former Kings superstar goaltender Rogie Vachon as the team’s all-time leader in career regular season wins.
