Rangers' Chris Kreider: Sinks game-winner against Tampa

Kreider scored the game-winning goal on a third-period breakaway Tuesday against the Lightning.

After Derek Stepan brought the Rangers back from a 2-0 deficit to a 2-2 tie with a pair of goals, Kreider followed with a pretty deke on his breakaway against Tampa goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy to make the difference in the game. Although this has been a disappointing campaign on the whole for Kreider, who's likely to fall short of last year's 46 points (he has 42 now), he's been on a heater down the stretch -- eight points in the last six games now, with six PIM and a plus-5 to boot. The Boston College product has had a tendency to turn invisible on the ice at times, so it's nice to see him being noticeable out there on a nightly basis heading into the postseason.
