Jesper Fast scored a goal in his Whale debut and Chris Kreider had two assists as Connecticut defeated Springfield 4-3, last night.
Here's video of the goal...
...the kid has been touted as a goal scorer and that was a sweet snipe. Got to be excited about this kid's future. Although, you have to wonder if his future could be now if he lights it up with the Whale.
...loved the assist from Kreider. If he can add a little play making to his game it'll make him that much more effective in the NHL.
...btw, how about those moves by Bickel gaining the zone before the goal? Who knew?
someone said that Hank is starting tonight, not in love with this move, we have two huge games against toronto coming up, where we could steal 6th, I dont really know where Hank gets a rest if he doesnt get one tonight
1. Isn't Springfield the best team in the AHL? thats an impressive win.
2. Any chance we get to see a line of Kreider-Miller-Fast next year? My mouth is already salivating...
I think my favorite part of this we have a bucnh of guys in the minors now (Thomas, Miller, Kreids, Fast, etc.) we all of a sudden have a ton of depth, where would they fit in? Brass is playing too good hockey to be benched, we have a good 4th line and we all of a sudden have a loaded top 9, where do they fit?
@TheNYRBlog The Rangers have the tendency to rush their prospects (i.e. Kreider) Let him develop his game in the AHL first.
Have to remember Fast has been touted for years and has been playing well in the SEL-he's a good player.What is interesting is that everybody is freaking out over Oscar Lindberg's play which has been beast like in the SEL.When he gets over here we could really have something.Both guys could be capable of playing in the NHL and in the playoffs, no less.We have to keep an eye on them.
@TheNYRBlog Fast was hurt midway through the 3rd and didn't return. Didn't even come out to salute the fans as the 3rd star
Kreider-Miller-Fast could be an entire line to call up/play together next year in the show. But where do they fit now with all the additions at the deadline? They need top minutes to be effective;cant bury them on the 4th line.
@PenaltySh0t well i take boyle and Pyatt out. Asham comes out for dorsett. Also, if one of these guys can play on the pk, we wouldnt need Powe anymore. Throw in two of Kreider, Miller, Fasth, Lindberg next year. I think the really interesting thing next year is, I don't think there is a spot for McIlrath anymore... With Moore our top 6 could be full. Only guys spot he has a chance at taking could be stralman, unless Moore tanks this year

@PenaltySh0t big body in front of the net maybe...
@Josh6 but we have McIlrath who's ready soon, and we really need a guy who'll clear the crease and bash some skulls, where would he fit? I wonder....
