Chris Kreider has been excellent for the Rangers since returning from a fractured left hand.

Coach Alain Vigneault likes the way he has meshed with Derek Stepan and Rick Nash on the top line. "Chris with [Stepan and Nash] have been a real consistent line for us," said the Rangers bench boss. "Bringing that speed back in, bringing that physical game he can play, it makes it real tough on the other team." Kreider has picked up four goals, six assists and 30 hits in 10 playoff games.

Chris Kreider was involved in all four New York Rangers goals in Tuesday's 7-4 loss to Montreal at the Bell Centre.

Chris Kreider didn't take part in Saturday's practice, but he's expected to play in Game 4 Sunday.

He missed the session for a "maintenance" day, according to coach Alain Vigneault. Jesper Fast took his place alongside Dominic Moore and Rick Nash, but he'll probably be in the press box on Sunday night. Kreider has three goals and three assists in seven postseason matches, including four points against Montreal in the Eastern Conference Final.

Rangers forward Chris Kreider says Dustin Tokarski challenges shooters more than the goalie he's replacing in the Eastern Conference Final series, Carey Price.

Kreider says Tokarski plays higher in the goal crease than Price and finds himself outside of the blue paint more than Montreal's usual No. 1 goalie. "He comes out pretty far," added Rangers forward Carl Hagelin. "He's really aggressive at the shooter, but at the same time he made some good saves when we made lateral plays. Overall he's a good goalie." Tokarski is 1-1 in the series against the Rangers. The Rangers enjoy a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series, with Game 4 going Sunday night. The winner of the series advances to the Stanley Cup final against either the Los Angeles Kings or Chicago Blackhawks, who are tied 1-1 in the Western Conference Final series.

Chris Kreider doesn't think the Canadiens will target him after he crashed into Carey Price in Game 1.

Carey Price will miss the rest of the series as a result of that collision, but Kreider argues that it was an accident. "I look back on it and think I wish I would've put it in the net," Kreider said. "Obviously I was trying to score a goal. I put it wide. It was a bang-bang play. Everything happened pretty quickly." The Rangers and Canadiens will play Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Final on Monday.
May 19 - 2:58 PM

New York Rangers forward Chris Kreider might be a solid bet for some PIM in Game 2 against the Montreal Canadiens on Monday.

Considering how irritated the Habs are about him crashing goalie Carey Price, Kreider might be more primed to get in a scuffle or two. It's a playoff game and he's an important piece for New York so it's no guarantee, either, though.

Chris Kreider scored and assisted for the Rangers as they defeated the Canadiens in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final 7-2.

Seven different Rangers notched goals. Kreider’s return has been a major boon to the Rangers’ play during the playoffs as he deepens their forward group, adds another speed element and gives them a guy who is willing to go in front of the net. He has two goals and two helpers in five games.
May 17 - 8:21 PM

Chris Kreider registered a goal and an assist in Game 5 and coach Alain Vigneault has been impressed by his play so soon after he returned from a hand injury.

Vigneault said: "He really takes care of himself physically and the fact that for close to seven weeks he couldn't stickhandle, couldn't do anything, obviously it was a challenge for him, but that's as good as I've seen anybody respond that hasn't had a full team practice and stepping in and coming in and playing." He returned to the lineup on Wednesday for the first time since Mar. 24.
May 10 - 5:12 PM

Chris Kreider logged 15:24 minutes in his return from a broken hand.

It was Kreider's first game since March 24. He ended up with no points and a minus-one rating in the Rangers' 4-2 loss to Pittsburgh on Wednesday. "Good one shift, rusty the next, good one shift, rusty the next," Kreider said of his play. "There were definitely some things that I got out of my game early in the season that crept back in."
