Martin St-Louis: still crazy for goals after all these years

Martin St-Louis will be 40 years old in the summer, but as he showed Sunday night against the Canadiens, the Rangers star only knows how to play – and score brilliant goals like this one – one way.

Martin St-Louis may be 39 years old, but the reason he's headed for the Hockey Hall of Fame when his career is over is because he's never stopped playing with the hunger of a rookie. You could see that on display Sunday night when St-Louis' New York Rangers hosted the Montreal Canadiens and the right winger scored a beautiful goal that was all about extra effort.

The Blueshirts were already up 2-0 on the Habs late in the second period when St-Louis turned on the jets chasing a puck into Montreal's zone, then picked the pocket of defenseman Alexei Emelin before flipping the puck up and past goalie Dustin Tokarski for his eighth goal of the season:

St-Louis added an assist in the Rangers' 5-0 rout of the Canadiens and now has 17 points in 20 games this year. He turns 40 in June, but nobody should doubt he'll play the game the same way until his last game in the league.
