Jonathan Quick realizes that even the NHL's best defensive team is powerless against a few bad bounces of the puck.

The Los Angeles Kings and their star goalie aren't worrying or panicking after they were blitzed 6-3 by the San Jose Sharks in their playoff opener. The Kings fell behind by five goals in the first two periods before Quick was pulled during an evening of surprises for a defensive powerhouse.

Quick credits the Sharks for their scoring bonanza, but also thinks San Jose got lucky bounces and fortunate breaks, particularly while scoring twice late in the first period.

With two days off between games at the Shark Tank, the Kings returned to their training complex for two practices. Coach Darryl Sutter says the Kings will "start over" this weekend.
