Video- The Tampa Bay Lightning Honor Martin St. Louis

from Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune,

Set to Bastille’s “Pompeii,” the video began with a shot of St. Louis with his hands on the top of his stick, head down and shuffling his skates during a pregame introduction, which was followed by a quick montage of goal celebrations through the seasons. That was followed by a replay of the triple-overtime, series-clinching goal St. Louis scored against the Washington Capitals during the 2003 first-round series, the first playoff series victory in franchise history.

That cut away to “With our sincere gratitude” before a replay of the double-overtime goal St. Louis scored against Calgary during the 2004 Stanley Cup final.

Then “For 13 seasons’’ flashed up on the board followed by a picture of the center-ice scene when the Lightning won the Cup, with a zoomed-in shot of a bleeding St. Louis with a smile on his face....

As the video concluded, St. Louis came off the New York bench, raised his glove to the fans and touched the glove to his chest, which he did on two occasions as the applause turned into a standing ovation.

“I was very flattered by the ovation, and I wanted to give them the proper thank you,” St. Louis said. “It was great, it brought up a lot of memories, I felt I wanted to give them the thank you that they deserved.’’
