Rangers coach Alain Vigneault likes what he's seen from J.T. Miller on the second unit and he doesn't want to disrupt that. We fully expect Kreider to find his way onto the first or second line in the not too distant future, but for now you should temper your expectations for him.

Chris Kreider has not found the back of the net in 11 straight games.

Kreider has only four goals this season but has 48 penalty minutes to give him some fantasy relevance in shallower pools. His 13 points in 24 games is just okay. He should be kept in deeper leagues but consider a better option in shallow pools.

Chris Krieder will return to the Rangers lineup Monday night at the Garden to face Tampa Bay.

Krieder missed Saturday's bout with the Flyers due to the passing of his grandfather, but will be back on the ice Monday night. He will line up on the wing with Derek Stepan and Martin St. Louis. Krieder has just four goals o to go along with nine assists in the young season, but his 48 penalty minutes have certainly helped his fantasy owners and he should start producing more points in the near future.

Chris Kreider returns to Montreal to face Carey Price for first time since he collided with the netminder during Game 1 of the Eastern Conference final.

Expect boos to be raining down on Kreider all night. "I would think now that the series has gone by and that everybody’s calmer and cooler that everybody on both teams and anybody watching knows that (the Kreider play) was just a pure accident," coach Alain Vigneault said. "It’s unfortunate it happened. At that time, if everybody remembers, they were saying it was accidental, and then they said it was intentional on accident, and then they said it was intentional. There is a game within a game during the playoffs, and that’s what it was. I’m sure everybody knows it was purely accidental."
