Tampa, FL, United States (4E Sports) - The New York Rangers hope that right wing Martin St. Louis gets going after he scored his first playoff goal this season in Game 4 of their conference final against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The 39-year-old last scored a goal in a game against the Columbus Jackets on April 6.

"It felt good," St. Louis said. "The feeling is great, and I think the rest of your game sometimes just comes together after that."

St. Louis maintained a positive attitude despite the slump but admitted that it was a difficult phase.

"The games keep piling on [without scoring], you're getting chances, of course you press. Any guy that tells you they don't press, they're lying," he said.

"You can't just try to get goals, you've got to play the game 200 feet. You do that, sometimes you get rewarded, and tonight I did," St. Louis added.

Last season, St. Louis' mother died during the playoffs but the team rallied behind him and he played well helping the Rangers reach the Stanley Cup Finals.

This goal from the veteran makes the Rangers hope that he can turn up his offense and help them have a return appearance to the Finals.
