Silver Streak

Which one these following Los Angeles Kings Olympians acted like they’d been there before?


“Oh boy, Lombardi’s gonna have a field day with this one.”



“Gold sure is more purdy than silver.”



“Big boy handshake. Strong hands, look ’em in the eye.”



Your NHL leader in wins.

That’s right. Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jon Quick made it onto the ice for the Olympic Medal presentation looking like Waldo had slept over at Freddy Krueger’s house and needed to borrow something to wear the next morning. I’m sure Quick will look much better with that Silver Medal around his neck.


Somewhere in Milford, Connecticut… Jon Quick’s mother sheds a tear.

Congrats to all the Los Angeles Kings who brought home medals and to Canada and the USA for putting on a Gold Medal game for the ages. Only 2 hours until the NHL Trade Deadline un-freezes… and all hell breaks loose.
