LOS ANGELES, March 10 (UPI) -- Luc Robitaille scored his 650th career goal with just under four minutes left as the Los Angeles Kings took a 3-2 triumph over the Phoenix Coyotes.
Robitaille, who has scored more goals than any left wing in NHL history, reached the milestone with a blast from between the circles. Taking a pass from Trent Klatt, who dug the puck out from the left corner, Robitaille one-timed the puck between the pads of Phoenix goaltender Brent Johnson.
Robitaille was unaware of the milestone that only nine other players ever have reached.
"I wish I had known," he said. "I would have kept the puck."
The clutch goal, Robitaille's 19th of the season, enabled the Kings to snap a three-game winless streak (0-2-1) and remain tied with the St. Louis Blues for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
