For the Los Angeles Kings, the 2014 Stanley Cup playoffs could be titled A Tale of Two Goalies.

And both are named Jonathan Quick.

Specifically, Good Jonathan versus Bad Jonathan.

And, right now, the return of Good Jonathan has given the Kings a 2-0 stranglehold in their best-of-seven series against the Anaheim Ducks heading into Game 3 on Thursday at the Staples Center.

That the Kings have rebounded from losing their first three playoff games this spring to reel off six consecutive victories can be reflected in Quick’s numbers.

In going down 3-0 in games to the San Jose Sharks in the first round, Quick was beaten 16 times on just 108 shots, resulting in a lofty 5.87 goals-against average.

Since that time, Quick has allowed just eight goals in 207 shots, which translates to a 1.28 GAA over that span. It’s no surprise that the Kings have not lost in that time.

It seems obvious that Quick has regained the form that made him the Conn Smythe Tro
