Back on wing, Rangers' St. Louis finds scoring touch

NEW YORK -- Given Martin St. Louis' track record, it seemed inevitable that he would eventually start to score in bunches.

The New York Rangers right wing scored for the second straight game Wednesday and assisted on Derick Brassard's overtime goal in a 4-3 win against the Detroit Red Wings at Madison Square Garden.

St. Louis, 39, had a tough start to the season, scoring one goal through New York's first 10 games. Some of that could be attributed to the leg injury No. 1 center Derek Stepan sustained in training camp. The Stepan injury forced Rangers coach Alain Vigneault to ask St. Louis to spend some time at center.

St. Louis went the first five games of the season without a goal before he finally broke through against the San Jose Sharks on Oct. 19. He then went another four games without a goal.

NEW YORK -- Gordie Howe continues to show improvement in his fight to recover from a stroke he had Oct. 26. He is recovering and rehabilitating in Lubbock, Texas, where his daughter, Cathy, lives.

Mark Howe, Gordie Howe's son and a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame, said Wednesday prior to the game between the Detroit Red Wings and New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden that his father walked approximately 50 feet with assistance from his son Murray on Tuesday.

Mark said Gordie Howe could barely lift his right foot last week.

"When Marty and I got in there on Tuesday (of last week) he was happy to see us and he had a smile on his face, but basically you put your hand against his foot and he couldn't push, couldn't resist," Mark said. "His right arm began to move just a little bit, but basically his whole right side was shut down. My younger brother Murray stayed until today, sent me a video clip, and my dad walked maybe about 50 feet on a walker with Murray on his side, big-time assistance. But from what I saw a week ago, I think it's just tremendous."

The contract will have an average annual value of $5.75 million and begin at the start of the 2015-16 season. Fleury could have become an unrestricted free agent July 1.

The 29-year-old is 7-2-0 with a1.89 goals-against average and a .931 save percentage this season. Fleury's three shutouts are tied for the NHL lead, and he has back-to-back shutouts for the first time in his career heading into Pittsburgh's game against the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday.

"I'm really happy," Fleury said Wednesday after practice at MTS Centre. "I've spent a lot of time [in Pittsburgh]. It's like my home. My teammates, I have been with them for a while. The organization has been great to me all of these years. The city, the fans, I couldn't be happier."

Quote of the Day

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.

— Capitals forward Jay Beagle on scoring in their Game 3 victory against the Rangers on Monday
