Goal in last game and you knew it

I was thinking about this last night hoping Ryan Smyth would score a goal.

There are probably a lot of players who scored a goal in their last career game. But can you name some players where they announced their retirement ahead of time and they scored in their last game?

So, I'm not talking about guys that scored in their last game but they didn't announce their retirement until the off-season.

Messier didn't announce it was his last game, but everyone on the planet new it, so I think that might "half" count.

Lafleur scored in his last game at the Forum, second last game of the season of his farewell tour. Next night in Quebec City, he didn't. He'll always be a Hab in most people's minds so that's pretty close. It was practically a home game for him.

It doesn't really count but didn't Mario score in his final game in 1997 with his first retirement?

It was either his last game or his last home game in the first round series vs. the Flyers. I think it was pretty much assumed he was going to retire, but I don't think Lemieux officially announced it until the off-season, did he?

I think it was the last home game last time I researched it and if you remember, Mario left the crying ice after a huge ovation so it was pretty well known.
