Q&A: Robitaille’s first goal

One of my questions for Luc Robitaille was about the most satisfying goal he scored as a King. ..

ROBITAILLE: “I’m not sure I can pick one goal. I would say that stepping on the ice, and clearly being really, really nervous on opening night… Stepping on the ice on his first shift and seeing the open goal, after the goalie made a mistake, and yelling at Marcel, `Give me the puck,’ and tipping it into the empty net on my first shift and my first shot, that’s a cool thing. After that, it always comes down to big goals in the playoffs or overtime or helping the team to an emotional win, but I would say stepping on the ice and scoring, I’ll never forget that feeling. I couldn’t believe it.”
