With a 4-0 victory over the Florida Panthers, Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick surpassed Rogie Vachon on the franchise's all-time wins list with 172.

Quick, 28, eclipsed the mark in 62 fewer appearances than Vachon, who did not have the benefit of overtime or shootouts to reach 171 victories. Vachon still holds the team mark with 32 career shutouts, though Quick notched his 30th blankin in the record-setting win.

Vachon, the Kings goalie from 1971-1978, was in the house on Saturday to witness the Connecticut native notch the record-setting win:

Drafted in the third round (72nd overall) in the 2005 NHL Draft out of Avon Old Farms, Quick went on to star at UMass-Amherst and has spent all of his seven-year career in L.A. and has a 172-115-31 NHL record.

Since taking the reins in net for the Kings in 2008-2009, Quick has three of the top four single-season win totals in Kings history and played a vital role in the team's 2012 Stanley Cup title, bringing home the Conn Smythe as playoff MVP after going 16-4-0 with a 1.41 GAA and a .946 save percentage. His knack for for making big plays has endeared him to L.A. fans, and was on full display against the Panthers.
