Bobby Hull watches his records fall

Enquirer staff, wire reports

        DETROIT — Hall of Famer Bobby Hull saw two of his records fall on Friday night — one to his son.

        Luc Robitaille passed Hull to become the most prolific goal-scoring left wing in NHL history and added an assist as the Detroit Red Wings defeated the Washington Capitals 3-1.

        Brett Hull also scored to pass his father and move into third place on the all-time list of game-winning goals.

        Robitaille scored his 611th goal 1:50 into the game when he tipped in a shot from the point by Kirk Maltby. It was Robitaille's 21st goal of the season.

        Bobby Hull watched the game from the Joe Louis Arena stands. “What are records for?” he asked. “And I'm glad to see these young guys set them.”

        Hull presented Robitaille with a cigar after the game for breaking his record, one that Brett had given him around Christmas
