Luc Robitaille thinks him game is starting to come around.
Robitaille returned to the Kings lineup with the injury to Jeremy Roenick. Robitaille, who has one goal in 12 games since returning from a broken bone in his leg, played only 9 minutes 22 seconds against Calgary on Wednesday. He took four penalties, three in the first period. Against Edmonton on Friday, Robitaille played 12 minutes 31 seconds and nearly scored the game-tying goal in the final minutes.
"I still think I can play, especially under the new rules," Robitaille after the Edmonton game. "If I play with guys who can hang on to the puck, there's four more feet in the offensive zone. The last two games I've felt better, and Andy gave me chances [against Edmonton]. If I keep getting this ice time, the puck will go in." Start thinking about putting Robitaille back in your lineup as he may be on the verge of breaking out.
