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.

Vachon was at the game to share in the moment and to congratulate Quick.

EL SEGUNDO, CA — Generally speaking, professional hockey players don’t get to go on vacation until spring or summer, when their season ends, except during an Olympic year, when National Hockey League players who are not playing for their national teams get some time off during the Games. But the season continues for the rest of the professional leagues in North America during the Olympic break, and that is exactly what is happening during the XXII Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

LA Kings Get The Shaft On Disputed Goal That Should Have Been Reviewable Years Ago

COMMENTARY/ANALYSIS: The Los Angeles Kings had a likely victory snatched from them by on-ice officials in Detroit on January 18, when video replay showed that a Detroit goal should not have been allowed. Was the right call made? Should the goal have been reviewable? What’s next?

LOS ANGELES — On January 18, forward Jeff Carter scored a power play goal at 17:45 of the third period to lead the Los Angeles Kings to a 2-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings

At least, that is probably the way the lead for a recap of this game should have read. Instead, the Red Wings pulled out a 3-2 shootout victory after the officials allowed a goal at 19:33 of the third period by Detroit’s Niklas Kronwall that never should have counted.

On that highly controversial play, Kronwall got the puck at the top of the slot and fired a slapshot that deflected off of Kings center Jarret Stoll’s stick. The puck ricocheted high into the air, hitting near the top of the protective netting behind the Kings net. It then dropped, bounced off of Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick’s back, and wound up in the net.

At that point, referee Rob Martell pointed to the net, indicating that a goal had been scored.
