Photo of the Week #130
Here’s a shot of a big hit by Chris Kreider, the promising young draft pick who joined the New York Rangers for the start of the playoffs last month only days after winning the NCAA Championship with Boston College. Kreider became the first player in NHL history whose first two goals were playoff game winners (Game 6 of the first round vs. Ottawa and Game 1 of this second round vs. Washington). Kreider, a triple threat with his speed, puck handling and physicality, will surely continue to help the Rangers in their quest for the 2012 Stanley Cup, and for years to come.
