Martin St. Louis, during a difficult time with the sudden passing of his mother on Thursday, will have his father and sister in attendance when he and the New York Rangers take on the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 6 on Sunday.

It’s an elimination game for the Rangers, as they need another win to extend the series to seven games, and it comes on Mother’s Day. We saw the support he received from his teammates, and even Pittsburgh’s captain Sidney Crosby before the game, in Friday’s Game 5 win for New York.

“Obviously, it’s going to be a very emotional night again for our group, it being mother’s day and the situation Marty is going through right now,” Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said Saturday, as per

“Marty flew home last night to Montreal after the game to pick up his father and his sister. He’s bringing them both to the game tomorrow and, hopefully, that will bring us some positive energy.”

    Life played out through hockey. Although I didn’t know France St. Louis I’ve heard much about her from Phil Esposito on the NHL Network. She wouldn’t have it any other way. Play hard Rangers!

      I’m always glad to see non-hockey people show up on here. Perhaps you should understand our sport before you spout off your ignorance.

      This is a game that as a very young kid, your parents sacrifice money, 4:30am wake-ups and entire weekends so that their kids can play the sport. I can’t imagine any hockey parent wanting their kid to miss a game because of them.

      Because he and the team were struggling, and MSL was a reason why. It’s not rocket science. We’re pleased they played well more inspired yesterday

    We love you marty. Shut up haters, she’d want him to play! She’s been his bigger cheer leader for 35 years.

    Having losing my father on fathers day he has to be riding an emotional roller coaster. Although I’m a pens fan I hope he plays the game of his life.
