Kreider’s first NHL goal is a huge one

Chris Kreider didn’t contribute to the New York Rangers getting the first seed - in fact he’s only about a week removed from his NHL debut - but with one shot he changed the course of their postseason run. Kreider netted his first career goal on Monday and thanks to Ottawa Senators’ late - and some would say controversial - goal, it proved to be the game-winner in the Rangers’ 3-2 victory. You can take a look at it below:

Kreider, who recently won a national championship with Boston College, has helped the Rangers stay alive for another couple of days and force a Game 7.
