The Rangers need more from Chris Kreider

Thank god the Rangers have Rick Nash. That’s a statement not just uttered countless times by the Ranger fan base but is something that Chris Kreider has probably said a few times this season as well.

It is rare for a team to struggle through the first two months of the season and still find their way into the postseason. Obviously, last year’s New York Rangers were an exception, as they were out of the playoffs in November...
