As the New York Rangers entered Game 5 of their Stanley Cup Playoffs series against the Pittsburgh Penguins, they were in the midst of an 0-for-36 scoring streak when they had a man advantage.
The Rangers Power play was anything but powerful, but Chris Kreider put an end to the futility.
New York had missed Kreider’s presence on the Power Play unit while he was recovering from hand surgery. His hand seemed to work just fine on Friday night.
Kreider took things into his own hands (literally) as he dove to keep the puck in the Rangers’ offensive end, and then put the biscuit in the basket to put the Rangers up 1-0.
