Chris Kreider has played only six NHL games, but he has already made a remarkable impression on fans, broadcasters, and fellow players alike. His goal to win Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals vs. Washington at Madison Square Garden was a display of pure talent that won't soon be forgotten.
"I was tired, at the back end of a shift, a pretty long shift," explained Kreider. "There was an opening so I thought I'd hit it, and (Derek) Stepan made a nice pass. Usually I'll try and take that to the net, but I had to pull up because I was tired. So I just tried to get it on net."
