One thing about Chris Kreider that has always sort of bothered me is that he's a bit aloof. He doesn't wear his emotions on his sleeve and he looks borderline bored sometimes out on the ice. But man that all changed with one re-direction goal to give the Rangers a Game 4 overtime victory and keep them alive in their best of seven series to the Bruins. Just check out the above pic. Pretty fired up just looking at it.
Here's the goal, which was an absolute thing of beauty...
...i think we're learning that at this point in his career, Kreider needs to be on a line with talent to be effective. He''s not ready to be the focal point of the line just yet. Hopefully after last night, Tortorella is finally realizing this as well and the Rangers can start having some consistent offense in this series.
...oh yeah, sweet pass from Nash.
Here's Kreider on the winner (via New York Post)...
“It wasn’t on my stick a very long time. Nash kind of used me as a backstop, and that’s what great players do.”
TSN feed, is that Jimmy Dolan hanging out with the 2 Victoria's Secret Models at the 28 second mark??
Ryan FYI, he has had 3 GWGs in playoffs. He is 22; non factor? That's a silly comment. You must be a devils fan. God help you.
@TheNYRBlog I feel like torts is always a step behind the fan base
Am I the only one who thinks Kreider and Zucc should be linemates. Zucc made some great passes last night to guys who couldn't finish and Kreider needs someone to get him the puck.
@TheNYRBlog no shit now if torts can figure this out we could win this in 7
How do you not put Kreider quoting the goonies in here?
Kreider pulled out the "Goonies never say die" line tonite when I asked him if they think about 1 goal against being the end of the season.
@TheNYRBlog thats the damn truth he will never be effective on a fourth line wit players like asham gotta be with speedsters not old men
Most speedy wingers do, it's a waste of their talents to play them on the 3rd and 4th line because they don't have anybody to get them the puck and nobody skilled enough to give them enough space to actually score.
@johnnyb3910 One of them definitely needs a mustache ride.
@jazzgirl1414 no I like the lines the way they are really. Boyle and Pyatt's big bodies give Zucc a lot more room to work with.
@jazzgirl1414 No, the line should be Krieder-Brassard-Nash and it should be that for years to come
@CaptCally24 @TheNYRBlog Simple - win the next 3 games :)
