Kings goalie Quick pulled after fourth goal

CHICAGO -- Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick was pulled from Game 2 of the Western Conference finals on Sunday after giving up four goals to the Chicago Blackhawks in 29:20.

It’s the first time in 15 playoff games this year Quick has given up more than three goals and the first time he’s been pulled from a game.

Quick gave up first-period goals to Andrew Shaw and Brent Seabrook, while Bryan Bickell and Michal Handzus tallied in the second period. Bickell’s goal came on the power play.

Quick entered the game leading all playoff goalies in save percentage with a .947 mark. He won the Conn Smythe award last year for his performance in leading the Kings to their first Stanley Cup title.

The Hawks led 4-0 when Quick was pulled. Backup Jonathan Bernier replaced him.
