Video: Luke Schenn, Scuderi bail out Quick to deny Couture

2 Comments

Logan Couture had Jonathan Quick beat.

And if it wasn’t for the efforts of Kings’ defensemen Luke Schenn and Rob Scuderi, Couture would’ve had a goal for the San Jose Sharks late in the first period of Game 2.

During a scramble in front of Quick, after the L.A. goalie was unable to cover up for the whistle, the puck came back to Couture, who ripped a shot only to have Schenn block the net. Scuderi also slid in front of Couture to try to block the shot.

The puck deflected out of play and the rough stuff ensued.

(In Game 1, it was Drew Doughty who had to make a desperation stop in the crease, as Quick was caught out of position.)

Couture did get his revenge: In the second period, he scored on the power play, giving San Jose a 2-0 lead.
