It may be early for this conjecture, but can you imagine a Phoenix versus Los Angeles Western Conference final travelling between the desert and Tinseltown? Me either, but if Quick and Coyote goaltender Mike Smith keep up their elevated performance levels, it is beginning to seem like a real possibility. But back to reality.
Quick stopped St. Louis shots early and often, with the early part being the key to keeping the Kings in the game long enough for two defensemen, Slava Voynov and Matt Greene to score two of the three and all that would be required for the victory. Dustin Penner added an empty netter to make it official. Quick has now won 5 out of 6 in the postseason, with remarkable stats of just under one and a half goals a game and a save percentage of ninety six percent.

In defense of St. Louis, they had a week lay off after eliminating San Jose, but actually played well early anyway with David Backes scoring the first and as it turned out, only, goal for the Blues 9:16 into the first period.
Blues goalie, Brian Elliot had decent numbers of his own, allowing just two scores, albeit, one short handed, before Penners empty netter made it 3. Even with Quicks dominant performance in game one the oddsmakers have installed St. louis as home favorites at -$155, while L.A. Is +$135. The good goaltending is having an effect on the over/under established at 4.5 total goals and -$120.
