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

May 11, 2014, 7:25 PM EDT

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.

    As a pens fan, hated the goal.

    As a human being, it felt good to see him score. On today of all days. Good for him.

    Pens playing better tonight, but still looks like NY wants it more. Hopefully they can come out more fired up for the next two. Need to match the ranger intensity.

    Is there a stat for this kind of thing? If not, I’m sure there will be. This isn’t news. People die, we all still work. If I had a job as awesome as his at this time of year. Nothing could stop me.

      Get. Bent. No amount of money makes losing your damn mother any easier. If you think any different, you’re a terrible human being.

      Sid got away with punching Boris Valabik in the family jewels from behind !

        Not possible. The classiest player in the league would NEVER stoop to such antics. Only a Lucic or Perry would attempt such an unsportsmanlike play.

        Bettman won’t allow it !

        God, what I wouldn’t give to see the League fine Crosby. But of course, they never will. Can’t go impugning their own product. He sells too many jerseys to be subject to the rules like everyone else.

    Cindy gets all tough once the refs step in. Typical. Boyle would clean his clock and Cindy would đŸ’© his pants.
