Video: Martin St. Louis scores on Mother’s Day


Every now and then, sports provide stories so perfect they almost seem scripted.

It kind of felt like that when Martin St. Louis scored a 1-0 goal for the New York Rangers against the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 6 on Sunday. With his father and sister in attendance, St. Louis scored a goal on Mother’s Day, just days after his mother France St. Louis passed away.

Moments after the go, St. Louis showed a burst of speed that was surprising for any player, let alone a 38-year-old.

We’ll see if an early 2-0 lead holds, but so far the Rangers are providing inspired play … and St. Louis is leading the way.
