Watch Chris Kreider tie an “obscure” NHL record

May 16, 2012, 11:12 PM EDT

The New York Rangers were handed a 3-2 loss on Wednesday, so Chris Kreider probably isn’t in much of a celebrating mood. Still, he made a bit of history with his fourth goal of the playoffs. You can check out it out below:

Kreider went straight from the NCAA to the NHL playoffs, which by itself is a rarity, but he accomplished something even more unusual on Wednesday. Eddie Mazur is the only other player in the history of the NHL to net four playoff goals before making his regular season debut. The difference is that Mazur took part in three postseason runs before he finally cracked the Montreal Canadiens’ lineup in a regular season contest.

    Watch him lose game 2. Records are for the birds. It’s the playoffs, records go out the window

    He also hit a post and made a beautiful pass to a wide open Staal in the slot (who proceeded to whiff on the shot). Kreider is the real deal.
