"Coming through for mom"

Nice story

In his entire Hall of Fame hockey career, L.A. Kings president of business operations Luc Robitaille had been asked for only one thing by his mom -- towels. 

"To rub my bowling balls with," she specified in her native French. "With the Kings' logo on them. For luck." 

So when he got a call out of the blue from her during the second round of the NHL playoffs this past May, he was worried. After all, she was 70 with advanced liver cancer. She was on morphine. The doctors were already surprised she was still alive after two-and-a-half years. Most people make it only a year. 

"If you win the [Stanley] Cup," Madeleine Robitaille asked, "would you bring it home?"
