Alex Iafallo Scores First NHL Goal against Nashville Predators

"When I'm older, it'll be pretty cool to say I got a nice pass from [Anze] Kopitar for my first goal."

In his 14th game, Alex Iafallo finally broke through.

The forward has played a big part in the successful start to the LA Kings season, but he wasn't able to light the lamp in his first 13 games. That all changed in third period of the Kings game against the Nashville Predators on Saturday.

And Kings fans couldn't have been happier for the rookie.

"I knew it was coming," Iafallo said after the game. "Everybody was saying it to me, so I'm just glad it went in. It's a pretty special feeling. I just wanted to stay positive and keep doing positive things out there and good things will happen."
