Martin St. Louis scored the opening goal during the New York Rangers' playoff series 3-1 win against the Pittsburgh Penguins Sunday night in a moment that transcended pure sporting prowess.

Sunday also happened to be Mother's Day in North America, a day which would not have bypassed the Rangers man after a truly difficult week.

On Thursday St.Louis' mother sadly passed away unexpectedly and his performance in Game Six of the NHL playoff series was testament to his strength after having also played in Game Five on Friday.

St. Louis however felt it necessary to pay tribute to his teammates in the aftermath of a very special victory.

As the video above shows, when asked to hand out the Broadway Hat (Rangers' equivalent of a MVP award) St Louis took the opportunity to thank his teammates after the most difficult week of his life:

"You guys have been nothing but unbelievable for me these past couple days and I'll never forget that," St. Louis said.

"I couldn't be prouder to be a fucking New York Ranger with you guys. Thank you very much."

Martin St Louis received the game's first star, and will be available as the Rangers look to complete their series comeback when they face the Penguins in Game Seven Wednesday.
