No. 4: Kreider Sends Emelin Flying


Rangers forward Chris Kreider is built like a linebacker, and his combination of power and speed is a fairly lethal combination. Since being recalled from the minor leagues Kreider has used his size and strength like he hadn't before at the NHL level, playing with an edge and a willingness to hit the opposition at every turn. This example, from Saturday's 1-0 win in Montreal, is just the most dramatic as Kreider sends Canadien's Alexei Emelin flying with a clean, hard body check---certainly a standout play in a big-time road win for the Rangers.
