Kreider’s first NHL goal is a huge one

Apr 23, 2012, 10:15 PM EDT

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.

    Kid has earned some additional time on the ice. Getting better with every shift.

    Won’t score again even if they get out of game 7. Bet on it. This is a weak story
