It took 15 games with his new team, but Greenwich resident and New York Rangers forward Martin St. Louis was finally able to put the puck in the back of the net.

During tonight’s game against the Vancouver Canucks at the Rodgers Centre, the Rangers were clinging to a 2-1 lead midway through the third period. Attempting to kill off its second consecutive penalty of the period, the Rangers got a break, as the Canucks turned the puck over in the Rangers’ zone.

Rick Nash gained possession of the puck in front of the New york bench and sprinted down the ice. St. Louis wasn’t far behind on the 2-on-1 and took control of the puck just outside the faceoff circle in the Vancouver zone.

Holding the puck for less than a second, St. Louis fired a shot that landed in the top corner of the net to give the Rangers a 3-1 lead with 9:45 to play in the game. The Rangers won the game by that score and have 90 points on the season. Currently New York sits fifth in the Eastern Conference.

St. Louis’ shorthanded goal was his 30th of the season. Since joining the Rangers on March 6, St. Louis has three assists as a Ranger.
