Henrik Lundqvist vs Jonathan Quick - The battle continues in the playoffs

During the regular season, both Lundqvist and Quick were neck and neck in stats and were the undisputed best two goaltenders in the league. It's only fitting that at this point in the conference finals both are the top two goalies in the playoffs. Quick is #1 in GAA, Save % and wins, while Lundqvist is #1 in shutouts. Lundqvist is 2nd behind Quick in GAA, Save % and wins and Quick is 2nd behind Lundqvist in shutouts. Lastly, both goalies are the favourites to advance to the SCF and if that happens they will get the chance to duke it out in a 7 game series.

I know voting for the Vezina has already been completed but I think a potential showdown between these two in the Stanley Cup Final will ultimately decide who is the better goalie. What do you guys think? Is Lundqvist vs Quick one of the best stories of this season?

If they meet in the finals, it will decide who is the better team. Not necessarily who is the best goalie.

It could very well determine who the big game goaltender is too.

I'd rather have the Cup and the 2nd best goalie than have the best goalie but no Cup. In fact if we win the finals (assuming we win the 3rd round), I wouldn't mind if Quick didn't look all that good...we still have to negotiate a new contract with him.

Henrik has faced 150 more shots that Quick. It can also be argued that Henrik has played against more superior talent. But both players are wonderful players and are very likable and good for the game.

The last sentence in your post is pretty rediculous.

Ridiculous doesn't have an "e".

Anyway, Lundqvist vs. Quick would be a goalie duel for the ages. Really hoping it comes to fruition.

No it's not. If the Rangers win the Cup, I wouldn't give two ***** about how well everyone on the Rangers play. As long as we win, IDGAF.

They are both phenomenal goaltenders. I find our constant need to slot players into numbered lists a little ridiculous.

I believe Henrik Lundqvist is the best goaltender in the world. That constitutes being better than Quick. No trophy is going to change my opinion.

I have little problem with this arrangement. He can win the Vezina, too.

You are completely wasting your time with that dude. He seems to be under the impression that every pro Kings post is somehow a knock against the Rangers.

One year where he wins a Vezina isn't going to change what Lundqvist has done in the grand scheme of his career. The guy's been consistently top 3 in the league for 7 seasons.

But if you wanna just talk trophies, yes, Quick can win the Vezina, but he can't win the Hart. Lundqvist can.

This. Thank you!

It's the same mindset of feeling a need to compare every prospect or rookie to other established or retired players.


ie: "Kreider is like a mix between Erik Cole, Max Paccioretty and John Leclair!"

"Giroux is like a smaller Yzerman!"

Giroux is Giroux.

Kreider is Kreider.

They'll be good enough to make their own names. Stop trying to label everything and everyone. Obnoxious. Reminds me of the doofuses who label genres of music into ultra-specific categories like post-modern-hardcore-nu-metal. Grow up. Shut up.

Give Henrik the Vezina. Quick will take the Cup and Conn Smythe.

I have a question for Kings fans. Now that Quick is the goalie that has goal support and Lundqvist has the team struggling to score does that mean that Lundqvist is having the better postseason?

I think Lundqvist takes it pretty easily these playoffs. Quick has been good, but has played roughly 30% less games, and those 30% have been losses on the rangers side, cause they are not nearly as dominant as the Kings have been during their run. So counting 6 more losses, henrik is still just 00,8% from Quicks stats.

The rangers have struggled a lot during some of their games, and its safe to say that Lundqvist has been much more critical to their success than Quick has been to the kings since the kings dominate everybody right now.

Quite frankly....yes. Quick has been brilliant when he's needed to be, but Hank imo has played slightly better.

I still think it's a crying shame that Quick is not up for the Hart. Without him, Kings are not even being discussed as he's playing golf a month ago. I still think Quick had the better season and deserves the Vezina and Hart but nothing can be done about that.
