Marty St. Louis, who will turn 37 in June, knows he's not getting any younger. But the Tampa Bay Lightning wing said he has faith the team will quickly bounce back from this season's disappointment and that general manager Steve Yzerman will make the right moves this summer. If he didn't believe that, St. Louis said, he would have thought about playing elsewhere. St. Louis spoke about about why the team faltered this season, why it is possible to turn things around quickly and assisting on Steve Stamkos' 60th goal: On being out of the playoffs: Well, I mean, I think it just didn't happen overnight. Not that the pain gets any easier but you're more prepared for this knowing you're not going to be in it. It's not like you win your last game and you're in. We had time to deal with the reality, I guess. So, it's disappointing, but it's not like we didn't know this was coming.
