Devils Vs. Kings, Game 6: Jonathan Quick Wins Conn Smythe Trophy

Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the Most Valuable Player of the 2012 NHL Playoffs. On Monday night, he turned back 17 of 18 shots faced in Game 6 of the NHL Stanley Cup Finals to help lift the Kings to a 6-1 win over the New Jersey Devils.

Quick was absolutely marvelous throughout the Kings' 16-4 runs through the playoffs. The Kings took a 3-0 lead in all four of their series, and lost just one road game. Quick was perhaps to biggest reason why, posting a .946 save percentage and 1.43 goals against average.

Quick became just the third American to ever hoist the Conn Smythe, joining the New York Rangers' Brian Leetch in 1994, and Boston Bruins netminder Tim Thomas last season.
