Alex Killorn's Pretty First Goal is Captured on Cardboard

It's summer. The hockey writers are starting to pack up their cabins and return to the grind, but there is still a good couple of weeks until real news starts breaking. Until then we are left with finding different sources of inspiration.  Today's inspiration?  A hockey card.  This hockey card in fact.

A 2013-14 Panini/Score First Goal insert featuring Alex Killorn.  How did the copy writer describe the goal?

“Killorn was pushing the puck toward the Florida net late in the first period of a Feb. 16, 2013 game and had a split second to make a decision. He could’ve dropped it off to an open Vincent Lecavalier or pull the trigger himself. Killorn took the shot and got to celebrate his first career NHL goal.”

Is that how it actually happened? Read the rest over at Raw Charge.
