Jonathan Quick injured during warm-up, will play anyway

Goalies might just want to avoid warming up in the 2013 playoffs.

Minnesota Wild netminder Niklas Backstrom was injured before Game 1 of his team’s series and now it looks like Los Angeles Kings star Jonathan Quick was banged-up in the pregame bit preceding his squad’s Game 2 match against the St. Louis Blues.

It looks like he might just fight through it, however, as the Kings’ Twitter page notes that he’s still listed in the team’s starting lineup.

If Quick decides to bail mid-game, the team at least has a capable backup in Jonathan Bernier. At the moment, it appears that Quick will gut it out, though.

Either way, it makes you wonder if teams might decide to keep goalie warm-ups pretty minimal in the postseason.
