• St. Louis struggled upon being dealt to the Rangers, scoring just one goal in 19 regular-season games. But the 14-year veteran has returned to form in the playoffs, while mourning the death of his mother, France, to notch a team-high tying 13 points (team-high tying six goals, seven assists).

• A six-time All-Star, St. Louis, who won a Stanley Cup in 2003-04 and a gold medal with Team Canada in 2014, went undrafted and did not make his NHL debut until Oct. 6, 2000 at age 25. He has since won the Hart Trophy as league MVP in 2003-04.
