Chris Kreider had a penalty shot Saturday and missed for the second game in a row.

Chris Kreider says the Rangers’ work toward getting over the hump in the playoffs and winning a Stanley Cup begins in the offseason.

Specifically, the Rangers forward says the young players need to continue to earn larger roles. Kreider is one of those players; in his age-24 season, he had 21 goals and 46 points. "A lot of teams within our division made moves -- a lot of moves. We're a young team and guys have to put in the work this offseason and we have to build from within," Kreider said. "We've got to step up and take a larger role as individuals and contribute more and be more consistent across the board. The leaders will set the tone and we've got a really good group of vets, so it's up to the young guys to follow."
