“Small miracle”: Martin St. Louis scores in comeback

Dec 22, 2011, 1:45 AM EDT

Just two weeks after suffering from nasty facial fractures, Martin St. Louis returned against the San Jose Sharks. Tampa Bay Lightning head coach Guy Boucher said it would take “a small miracle” for St. Louis to find himself back in the lineup. So what should he call St. Louis scoring a goal in that same game, then?

Of course, that goal was pretty trivial in the scheme of a brutal 7-2 loss to the Sharks. Bolts GM Steve Yzerman might need to work up a little magic of his own by finding a goalie who can get the job, then.

    Is anyone really surprised, though? Marty’s almost as age-defyingly glorious as Selanne and Lidstrom. Great news to hear he’s back and playing up to his usual standard of excellence so quickly, though.
