St. Louis Scores Early to Lead Rangers to a Game 7

Elsa/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Martin St. Louis' mother may not be with us, but that doesn't mean she was forgotten on Mother's Day.

St. Louis, whose mother passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, scored the 3:34 into the game to start the New York Rangers scoring and help them defeat the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-1 Sunday, in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinal.

"Mother's Day, my dad is here, my sister is here," St. Louis said. "It's been a tough time for my whole family. To be able to get the lead in the first period, it was a good one."

Carl Hagelin and Derick Brassard also scored for the Rangers, which forced a do or die Game 7 Tuesday in Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby once again was held without a goal as he continues to struggle to score this postseason. 

Henrik Lundqvist made 36 saves for the Rangers, which have now won two straight.
