Video: Jonathan Quick gives up the worst goal in NHL history

Jonathan Quick

There are no words to describe just how bad the goal Los Angeles Kings net-minder Jonathan Quick surrendered Monday night against the New York Rangers, but I’m going to give it a try.

Early in the third period with the Rangers leading 2-1, the Kings were gaining momentum and earned a power play. It appeared they were on the verge of taking over of the game. At the beginning of the power play, the Rangers won a face-off and Ryan McDonagh cleared the puck the length of the ice towards Quick, and that’s when all hell broke loose.

As Quick maneuvered to corral the puck but stumbled a bit and lost control of his stick. As his stick went flying out of his hand, the puck bounced off his blocker and caromed into his own net. The ridiculous goal took the wind completely out of the Kings’ sails and gave the Rangers a 3-1 lead. That ended up being the final score.

Quick is one of the NHL’s best goaltenders, which made that crazy goal even more incredible and unlikely.

  2. I didn’t see this goal when it happened and so I was wondering if this short article was attempting to be a headline grabber.
    After shaking my head for awhile, I’ve got to admit this goal is definitely “in play” for one of the toughest (i.e. worst) goals to have go in at the NHL level.
    But…it can happen…

  3. This is bad but eerily similar to Brodeur’s gaffe in (i think) 2003 SCF against the Ducks….Ozolinsh (however you spell it) dumped it in and basically the same thing happened..bigger game though, set up gm 7

  6. The best part was when Quick was leaning on the net after the goal, and you can see the add that says “that was easy.”

  7. The sad thing is, Quick is easily one of the best goalies in the NHL but he’s always been awful at handling the puck. This just took it to another level.
