PITTSBURGH -- New York Rangers forward Martin St. Louis spent Thursday night with his family in Montreal, grieving the loss of mother France after she died suddenly. When Rangers coach Alain Vigneault told St. Louis perhaps the veteran forward should remain at home rather than help the Rangers try to fend off elimination against the Pittsburgh Penguins, St. Louis and his father held a lengthy heart to heart. Hours later, St. Louis was in Pittsburgh. By the end of the night he was near tears after an impassioned team effort in a 5-1 victory that forced Game 6 in New York on Sunday -- Mothers Day. "Im glad were able to get this win and stay alive," St. Louis said. "She was a great lady, the best human being Ive ever known in my life. I owed it to her to do it. I know she would have wanted me to play." Buoyed by the return of their teammate, one who has fit in quickly after being acquired from Tampa Bay at the trade deadline, the Rangers shook off a lethargic loss in Game 4 by blitzing the Penguins early. Derick Brassard scored twice and Chris Kreider, Ryan McDonagh and Kevin Klein added their first goals of the post-season for New York while Henrik Lundqvist stopped 31 shots. St. Louis had one shot in 16:19 of ice time, all of it with his mother in his thoughts. "She was with me the whole way but this is probably the most comfortable place you can be as a hockey player," he said. The Rangers certainly looked at ease while the Penguins failed to win a close-out game for the sixth time in their last seven chances on home ice. Evgeni Malkin had his third goal of the series for Pittsburgh and Marc-Andre Fleury made 30 saves but lacked the crispness that allowed the Penguins to sweep Games 3 and 4 in New York. While Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma stressed the importance of not letting the Rangers back in the series, the fire he was looking for came from the other bench. Pittsburgh committed a pair of sloppy penalties the Rangers finally turned to goals and couldnt convert a lengthy 5-on-3 power play late in the second period as they tried to climb out of a three-goal deficit. "At the start I think we played like a team that looked like we had an automatic bid to the next round," Pittsburgh defenceman Rob Scuderi said. "When its 2-0 right off the bat and youre playing from behind its not easy." The Penguins held the Rangers to a 15 shots in Game 4, a franchise record for fewest shots allowed in a playoff game. New York had 17 in the first period Friday night. Having its beleaguered power play finally look competent helped. The Rangers hadnt scored with the man advantage since Game 2 of the first round, an 0-for-36 stretch that often featured disinterested or disorganized play by New York whenever an opposing player skated to the penalty box. Kreider ended the miserable run 9:36 into the first period after Pittsburgh defenceman Robert Bortuzzo was called for delay of game for lazily flipping a puck over the boards in the Penguins zone despite having no pressure on him. Playing in his second game after missing more than a month with a hand injury, Kreider threaded a rebound from the bottom of the left circle in a small hole between Fleurys right pad and his blocker to give the Rangers their first lead in more than 180 minutes of play. Brassard made it 2-0 just over 5 minutes later, diving across the Pittsburgh crease to bang home Mats Zuccarellos rebound. The Penguins seemed to regain their swagger in the second period and Malkin cut the lead in half at the end of a thrilling burst in which he beat two Rangers to the net and did a 360- degree spin before slipping his own rebound by Lundqvist. The momentum didnt last. Brassard roofed a shot through a scrum in front of Fleury to make it 3-1 and McDonagh scored his first goal of the post-season with a shot through traffic from the point after Pittsburgh was whistled for too many man on the ice, the kind of untidy mistake the Penguins had avoided while winning three straight to take command of the series. Now its back to Madison Square for a series that suddenly looks competitive. "I dont think theres much good to take from it to be honest with you," Pittsburgh star Sidney Crosby said. "So I think we have to make sure we come with the right mindset going to New York. Whatever mindset we were tonight it wasnt enough." NOTES: The line of Brassard, Zuccarello and Benoit Pouliot combined for seven points (two goals, five assists). ... Pittsburgh forward Jussi Jokinens points streak ended at eight games. ... Pittsburgh scratched D Brooks Orpik, who appeared to suffer a lower-body injury in Game 4. ... The Rangers are 5 for 47 with the man advantage in the playoffs.

Lately his team hasnt given him much to curse about. The Raptors have won four straight, nine of their last 12 games, and the NBA has taken notice, awarding Casey Eastern Conference Coach of the Month honours for December. Heading into the month, Casey - like everyone else on the teams payroll - was on the hot seat after a 6-12 start forced Masai Ujiris hand and prompted the first of what seemed to be a series of franchise-altering transactions, the trade of Rudy Gay. Since then and to the surprise of most observers, Caseys club has turned a corner, playing the best and most harmonious basketball of his three-year tenure. Still, the Raptors coach is a long ways from taking any credit for his or the teams recent accomplishments. "I dont give a crap," Casey exclaimed following Wednesdays upset win over Indiana, briefly disregarding his New Years promise after he was asked about the personal satisfaction that may come out of his team success. "I mean, its not about me. Its about that team in there, in that locker room. Im going to be in coaching for a long time so its not about me, its about those guys." No, hes not going to take any credit, but he deserves a whole lot of it. The 56-year-old head coach has held his team together during what could have been, and likely should have been, their most trying period of time. Forced to bid farewell to their (arguably) most talented player and welcome in four new teammates after a rare early-season trade, the Raptors found themselves in a place of uncertainty. They were a franchise in limbo. Many believed Ujiri would immediately clean house, beginning with starting point guard Kyle Lowry, and perhaps even Casey, both in the last year of expiring deals. In spite of the obvious and understandable off-court distractions that hovered over them, Casey kept his troops focused. They remained upbeat, maybe more so than ever before, and continued to fight the good fight. The results speak for themselves. "I know, to win in this league you have to be a physical, bad-behind team," Casey said, staying in line with his resolution after the Raptors closed out December with a comeback win in Chicago, finishing the month with an 8-6 record. "Im not going to let up, Im not going to relent from that because thats who we are, its who weve got to be." All 15 players have bought into what Casey has been selling. They have defeated the best team in each conference and engineered four comeback victories on the road in a span of six games. Still, they remain grounded, focused and hungry for more. "The two wins [are] great but it would have been nice to finish with one more," Amir Johnson had said after a hard-fought loss in San Antonio, coming off a pair of surprising road wins over Dalllas and Oklahoma City.dddddddddddd "We cant settle." "Its a process," Casey says so often that the words have lost their meaning, but it has been and continues to be a process. DeMar DeRozan, the teams leading scorer, has never participated in a playoff game or been part of a winning team. Johnson hasnt won since he was a spectator on the contending Pistons teams. Jonas Valanciunas and Terrence Ross, both starters, are barely a third of the way into their second season as NBA pros. Somehow Casey has this group believing they can win, behaving like theyve been in this situation before and for the most part, they havent. From Caseys standpoint, nothing has changed. His approach remains the same, his work ethic is still unmatched but like anything else in professional sports and in life its about taking advantage of the right opportunity. Finally, the Raptors third-year head coach is getting the chance to show what he can do with a healthy, stable rotation. In his first season with the team, the lockout-shortened campaign of 2011-12, Casey overachieved despite using 20 different starting lineups and losing 124 man-games to injury. In many ways last season was three-in-one, as Casey has called it. The Raptors used 22 different starting units in 2012-13, losing 163 games to injury while navigating through the deal that brought Gay to Toronto midseason. Through 30 games this season, the team has had the benefit of good health, losing just five games to injury. As a result, Casey has started four different five-man units. In return for Gay, Ujiri was able to acquire four veteran players, three of which have been featured in Caseys nine-man rotation, the first consistent rotation he has felt comfortable using consistently over an extended period of time. "Guys are playing their role, guys are producing, that makes any rotation easier when guys produce," Casey said earlier this week, deflecting the credit once again. Since the trade, a vast majority of Caseys bold coaching decisions have paid off. Moving Ross to the starting lineup, cutting Tyler Hansbroughs minutes to include Patrick Patterson in the rotation, utilizing veteran forward John Salmons over Landry Fields and Steve Novak, rotating Ross and Salmons to close games, theyve all contributed to the teams recent surge. As they embark on another challenging road-trip - visiting the red-hot Wizards, defending champion Heat and conference-best Pacers - the Raptors sit atop the Atlantic Division for the first time (this late in the season) since 2007. That was also the last year a Raptors coach was named Coach of the Month. Casey becomes the third coach in franchise history to receive the honour, joining Lenny Wilkens (April 2002) and Sam Mitchell (January 2007), who went on to win the NBAs Coach of the Year award that season.
