I remember it like it was yesterday. Richards and Hagelin created a turnover by the benches, kept the puck in the zone and Hags tossed it over to the other side of the ice for a patiently waiting Marty St. Louis. At this point we all knew poor little Dustin Tokarski had ZERO shot of stopping that puck. Then, we heard the glorious sound of bar and in.
MAYHEM. Love me a good jump on the pile and the boys in blue did not disappoint. I almost feel like I was jipped as a Rangers fan. Yeah, we got to experience St. Louis but I wish we could’ve gotten him at least a year sooner. When he came to the Rangers he was on the down slope of his career but we still were able to make memories with him just like that goal. And trust me, that wasn’t his only big New York Rangers moment.
I mean I still get goosebumps to this day. Watching this video and knowing what this guy went through is enough to make a grown man cry. Marty St. Louis was a gamer, a warrior. Don’t believe me?
If you were to describe Marty in one word it’d be passion. In two words it’d be hard working and three words it would be REALLY REALLY good.
I love this guy and wish I got to watch more of him play with my favorite team. What is your favorite Marty memory?

Those are some hall of fame legs.
