No. 3: Kreider 1st Regular Season Goal


Even though Chris Kreider scored five goals in the Stanley Cup playoffs last spring after leaving Boston College, his first official regular-season NHL goal did not come until Tuesday night against the Devils. Returning to the lineup after a five-game absence, Kreider wired a top-shelf laser past Martin Brodeur 6:28 into the third period---the Rangers' lone goal in a 3-1 defeat at the Prudential Center. Brad Richards recorded the lone assist on the play, making a series of gorgeous moves before feeding Kreider on left wing for the score. Kreider, the Rangers 2009 top pick, officially netted his first goal in only his fourth game. Two nights later J.T. MIller, the Rangers No. 1 pick in 2011, scored in his second NHL game.
