    Rangers' Chris Kreider: Snaps goalless drought

    Kreider scored a goal in Thursday's 4-2 win over Minnesota. Despite logging nearly three minutes less (16:49) than his customary ice time, the 24-year-old collects his first point in four games and snaps a five-game goalless drought. Although he reaches a milestone with the 50th goal of his career, Kreider has the potential for more, but has not found consistency through three-plus seasons in the NHL. The Massachusetts native has 24 points through 48 games this season.

    Rangers' Chris Kreider: Uneventful return to the lineup

    Kreider (neck) was minus-1 with two shots on goal in Sunday's loss to Ottawa. Don't fret, all but three skaters on the team's box score registered a minus rating for the game and after a five day absence from game action, a little rust should be expected. While the 24-year-old did log just under 18 minutes of ice time, neck injuries can linger on, so monitor his progress in the coming days before you restore him to the lineup permanently. Kreider has nine goals and 23 points through 45 games played this season.

    Rangers' Chris Kreider: Will return Sunday

    Kreider (neck) will rejoin the lineup Sunday against the Senators. Kreider missed Friday's contest due to neck spasms that surfaced Thursday, but the extra rest must have done enough for his reinsertion. The veteran winger is expected to slot in as the left wing on the second line Sunday alongside Derek Stepan and J.T. Miller with Rick Nash (leg) ruled out, but things could change a bit again Monday if Nash returns as expected.

    Rangers' Chris Kreider: Won't play Friday

    Kreider (neck) won't play in Friday's game against the Hurricanes. Kreider's neck spasms surfaced at some point over the last few days, resulting in him skating by himself following Thursday's practice. It appears the issue hasn't receded enough for him to play Friday, allowing Daniel Paille to make his Rangers debut. Kreider's next chance to play now comes Sunday against the Senators.

    Rangers' Chris Kreider: Bothered by neck spasms

    Kreider is dealing with neck spasms and skated by himself following Thursday's practice. Rangers coach Alain Vigneault added the team will "see how he feels tomorrow (Friday)." This is the first we've heard of Kreider's neck issue, but we expect that he will be reevaluated ahead of Thursday's road game against the Hurricanes. The third-year winger has jumped off to a fast start in 2016, notching three goals with two assists in six games.

    Rangers' Chris Kreider: Heating up with points in four straight games

    Kreider scored an assist Tuesday against Vancouver in a 3-2 overtime win to extend his points streak to four games. Kreider now has three goals and two assists in his past four games, and brings his total to 22 points in 43 games. He's on pace for yet another 40-point season, but that breakout season everyone is waiting for still hasn't come. The 24-year-old is now in his fourth pro season and remains a solid player but not the dominant power forward the Rangers expected when they took him 19th overall in the 2009 draft. He's worth having on benches in fantasy but not necessarily starting material unless he gets hot, which of course he is right now.

    Rangers' Chris Kreider: Nets three-goal weekend

    Kreider found the net twice in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Capitals. Obviously the only forward who found twine, Kreider was the bright spot in an otherwise disappointing loss. Any owners still holding onto Kreider are anything but disappointed as the Boston native posted a three-goal weekend and has four points in his last three contests. While the 24-year-old continues to contribute in clumps, he was plenty consistent in the final three month of the 2014-15 campaigh, registering 25 of his season total 46 points. Kreider has 22 points through 43 games this season.

    Rangers' Chris Kreider: Tallies in loss

    Kreider had a goal and four shots in Saturday's loss to Philadelphia. With points in back-to-back nights, owners can hope that Kreider is starting to find the offensive touch that hasn't quite been there this year. Thy really good sign is that he's taken 10 shots in the last two games. The last time he took more than three shots in a game was Nov. 19. Now he's done it in two games in a row.

    Rangers' Chris Kreider: Will return Monday

    Kreider (hand) will return to the lineup for Monday's game against the Bruins, The Record reports. Kreider sat out each of the previous two contests due to a hand issue, but it appears that stretch of absences will come to a close Monday. He practiced on the third line alongside Kevin Hayes and Jesper Fast on Sunday, and would presumably play on that line in his return to the lineup.
