If you're having a bad day, go ahead and binge watch videos of NHL players' first career goals.
It should put a smile on your face. Every player remembers their first goal, and the reactions are priceless.
After 14 regular season NHL games (all with the Columbus Blue Jackets) Eric Robinson scored the first goal (and point) of his young career on Tuesday night in a losing effort to the Montreal Canadiens. Even in the defeat, it was a night to remember for the 24-year-old.
To top it off, the way Robinson received the puck was pretty special. Veteran goaltender Carey Price was in net for Montreal, and after allowing Robinson's goal, scooped up the puck and made sure it got in the hands of Riley Nash, to later give to the first-time-scorer.

The referee goes to retrieve the puck from Price, who holds on to it, then flips it to Riley Nash.
Nice touch, Carey. #Habs pic.twitter.com/Uj5fmkePn8
How did Price know it was Robinson's first goal, who is bubble player for one of the least-paid-attention-to franchises in the sport? Throw that in the bin of stories that make Carey Price an awesome veteran of the game.
