Coyotes’ Derek Morris beats Jonathan Quick from center ice in Game 1 (VIDEO)

Puck Daddy

Early in the first period of Game 1, Keith Yandle of the Phoenix Coyotes dumped the puck in on Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick, who dropped his stick attempting to play the puck.

Maybe the Coyotes noticed something from that play. Maybe they didn't. But later in the period, Coyotes defenseman Derek Morris decided against dumping the puck in and chose to fire it on net and ended up succeeding to tie the game:

As @Fel0096 points out, Quick allowed this center ice blast from Alex Pietrangelo of the St. Louis Blues last season.

Somewhere, Dan Cloutier is sympathizing.

Not much has beaten Quick this season and in these playoffs, so he's allowed one goof. And while he's made many highlight-reel saves this season, everyone joins the blooper reel at some point.

Fortunately for Quick, this one didn't come in a loss. The Kings took Game 1, 4-2.
