Saint Louis to play for Rangers despite mother's death

The SportsXchange

Forward Martin Saint Louis of the New York Rangers will play tonight against the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 5 of their NHL playoff series in Pittsburgh.

Saint Louis returned home to Montreal and made the decision after talking it over with his father after France Saint Louis passed away unexpectedly, reportedly because of heart problems.

"He said that he and his dad agreed that his mom would want him to be (here)," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said.

Saint Louis had six points in an opening-round seven-game series victory over the Philadelphia Flyers, but is without a point in four games against the Penguins, who hold a 3-1 lead in the series.
