Martin St. Louis Is The Guy

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

Again, as it has been so often through this dash to within a single victory of the Stanley Cup final, St. Louis was the man of the moment for the Rangers, ripping home the winner at 6:02 of overtime in the Rangers’ 3-2 Game 4 victory at the Garden on Sunday that sets up Tuesday’s Game 5 of the Eastern final in Montreal as the first potential clincher.

“Everybody wants to be the guy,” St. Louis said after converting Carl Hagelin’s eye-opening feed with a whippet of a shot from low in the right circle that flew into the net over Dustin Tokarski’s left shoulder. “When you’re playing as a kid in the streets, you picture this.

“Everybody wants to be the guy.”

St. Louis has been the man throughout a 14-year career that features a Hart Trophy, a pair of Art Ross Trophies and a Stanley Cup championship. It is a career that also includes four playoff overtime winners. Brad Richards, who got the second assist on the winner, has been there for a few.

“I’ve jumped on him a couple of times in overtime,” said Richards, the Butch to St. Louis’ Sundance. “It never gets old.”
