The spring of Jonathan Quick was beginning to bloom at this time last year. Quick backstopped the eighth-seeded Los Angeles Kings to an upset of the No. 1 seed and Presidents' Trophy-winning Vancouver Canucks. He allowed more than two goals once in that series, and would do so only twice more in the ensuing 15 postseason games. Quick's crab-like style of crouching low to locate the puck made pundits compare him to Dominik Hasek, and it was clear from his interviews that his focus was tighter than his five-hole.
