Video: Martin St. Louis scores four early goals vs. Sharks

Jan 18, 2014, 3:30 PM EDT

Martin St. Louis continued his searing pace since being left off Canada’s Olympic team, collecting a hat trick in the first period against the San Jose Sharks. The Tampa Bay Lightning captain still has two periods to add to this impressive start on Saturday:

Update: He isn’t finished, yet, as he scored a fourth goal early in the second period:

Here is what the 38-year-old has accomplished since being snubbed on Jan. 7:

Today: Four goals (and counting?) against the Sharks
Jan. 16: one goal
Jan. 14: one assist
Jan. 13: one assist
Jan. 11: one goal
Jan. 9: one assist
Jan. 7: two goals

As of this writing, St. Louis has 25 goals and 49 points on the season.

    This guy has always been a hell of a player and one of the hardest working guys in the league. It’s a shame he got snubbed, but I for one hope he keeps playing like this. It’s fun to watch. Good for him.

      He’s indeed a great player. He of course did not get ignored or spurned disdainfully by Team Canada (that is what snub means). He got well considered but there isn’t room for every great player on this team.

        But there’s plenty of room for Chris Kunitz! What a joke. And if anyone wants to play the chemistry card, Stamkos – St. Louis? Hello!? They will regret this. By far the best (and most deserving) player not going to Sochi. I’d call that a snub. He was absolutely spurned disdainfully by Team Canada.

        Shaun, again, you’d only call it a snub if you don’t understand what that word means. If Yzerman was thinking “darn, I’d love to take all these guys. It’s painful but I will have to leave Marty home, as great as he is.” then that’s not a disdainful snub. If he thought “well, some idiots think Marty is still great but I think he sucks and is a total jerk and I wouldn’t take him if we had room for 50 guys” then THAT would be a snub. But he didn’t and it wasn’t. Get it yet? Didn’t think so.

    The real highlight is bishop swan dive like I sware Crosby and kesler have nothing on this

    Team Canada paging Martin St. Louis. Come in, Martin. Your presence is requested in Sochi to replace Stamkos. You will be playing on the right side of Crosby with Kunitz,.

    “What now Yzerman??? What now!!!”

    St. Louis is so good.

    That second goal was absolutely filthy. What a guy

  8. lightning69 - Jan 19, 2014 at 12:10 AM

    All of that from a guy who is only 5’8″ and constantly playing against top line D. Mauling him behind the net, in the crease, and behind the play and he still puts up 4! Oh, and he plays D too!

    That is called heart and will power. Especially that 2nd goal. Shame that Bishop and the Bolts D didn’t put up a better game for Marty today.
