LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com/AP) — Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick says he’s fine after taking a shot off his collarbone before the Stanley Cup finals opener.
Quick says he only wrapped his workout early at Staples Center on Tuesday as a precaution.
Quick won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoff MVP while leading Los Angeles to its first NHL title. The U.S. Olympic team goalie’s statistics have been less impressive this spring, but Quick still has won a Game 7 in three straight playoff rounds.
Additionally, Quick has a .906 save percentage in the 2013-14 playoffs, and has gathered 1237 minutes on the ice.
Kings defenseman Robyn Regehr is also hoping he’s healthy enough to be available when the Kings host the New York Rangers in Game 1 on Wednesday night.
Regehr, who has played in eight games, averaging 17:12 on the ice per game in the playoffs, has been out since May 3, missing 13 games after injuring his knee in the second-round series opener in Anaheim.
