Martin St. Louis status uncertain after mom passes away: Report

The Rangers were blindsided by terrible news on Thursday: Veteran forward Martin St. Louis’ mother, France, unexpectedly passed away from a heart attack at the age of 63.

The team confirmed the report but was not prepared to discuss St. Louis’ status for Game 5 Friday night in Pittsburgh, when the Rangers face elimination from this second-round playoff series against the Penguins, trailing three games to one.

The 38-year-old St. Louis, a 5-foot-8, 180-pound future Hall of Famer, originally born in Laval, Quebec, joined the Rangers at this year’s deadline in a major trade with the Tampa Bay Lightning. He tied for the team scoring lead in the first round of these playoffs with six points but has struggled mightily against the Penguins.
