Rangers' St. Louis uncertain after mother's death
CBS Sports 50+ SHARES
That is especially true for New York Rangers forward Martin St. Louis, who is currently dealing with the unexpected loss of his 63-year-old mother, France, who passed away Thursday afternoon.
The Rangers are due to play the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 5 Friday night in Pittsburgh, teetering on the brink of elimination.
St. Louis' status for the game is not yet known.
Despite the importance of the game to the Rangers, trailing the Penguins 3-1, it sure doesn't seem as significant in the wake of such heartbreaking news for St. Louis and his family.
St. Louis has six points in 11 playoff games, but has yet to get on the scoresheet in this second-round series against Pittsburgh.
