Memorial Day (and hockey) WILL tug on your heartstrings!

Today is Memorial Day in the United States. It is celebrated every year on the last Monday of May and hearts are heavy to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service.

The date today is the 26th and two number 26's have found a place in many hockey fans' hearts:

  • Martin St. Louis of the New York Rangers scored in overtime last night against the Montreal Canadiens to pull his team within one game of the Stanley Cup final!
Martin has been the emotional leader of the team after losing his mom only three weeks ago to a sudden heart attack. The team has rallied around "Marvelous St. Louis" and even attended the funeral of France St. Louis on May 18th.
