Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Ben Scrivens is about to get more work
in the Los Angeles Kings' crease.
The club confirmed on Wednesday what GM Dean Lombardi revealed on a Toronto-
based radio program, that he expects starting goaltender and 2012 Conn Smythe
Trophy winner Jonathan Quick to be on the sidelines for at least another
Since Quick went down with a Grade 2 groin strain suffered during overtime of
a 3-2 shootout loss in Buffalo on Nov. 12, Scrivens has filled in admirably,
going 4-0-0 with a 1.00 goals-against average, .963 save percentage and back-
to-back shutouts. Included in that run was a scoreless string lasting 191
minutes and 19 seconds.
Having gone 6-0-1 in its last seven games despite additional losses of forward
Jeff Carter to a broken foot and defenseman Matt Greene to an upper-body
injury, Los Angeles is 15-6-1 on the season and currently holds fourth place
in a competitive Pacific Division.
