Despite the team's struggles lately, he still has managed 20 victories and he entered the night along the NHL's best netminders with a 2.34 goals-against average and .924 save percentage.Quick was the first goalie off the ice at the morning skate.Quick was able to play on Tuesday, but he did get yanked after allowing five goals on 19 shots.That rough start was the exception though as Quick has a 2.44 GAA and .921 save percentage in 39 starts this season.It's been quite the revival season for Kopitar after he was limited to 12 goals and 52 points in 76 games in 2016-17. He's had seasons where he's chipped in a bit more frequently, but he's never been much of an offensive weapon so his current numbers aren't too surprising.

Still, all else being equal, the breather will probably do Quick more good than playing in the All-Star Game would, especially if he's been playing through something.
Quick will need to miss one game in addition to the All-Star Game as a result of the league's policy, which can either be Wednesday's contest or the Kings' next game after the All-Star break, which is on Jan. The Kings have managed just one win over their past eight games, and they cannot seem to get off to a hot start lately.
