In the context of these current NHL playoffs, Chris Kreider has once again proven his value.

Over the years, he has been and continues to be a very useful and effective player for the New York Rangers.
Notably, he practically single-handedly helped the Rangers come from behind and eliminate the Carolina Hurricanes. This gave them an additional playoff round before being eliminated by the Florida Panthers.
It seems that Kreider always finds a way to make headlines during the playoffs.
However, the last time he did so won't bring back good memories for Canadiens fans, as in 2014, the forward collided with Carey Price, injuring his knee and diminishing the Montreal club's chances of reaching the Stanley Cup final.
In a recent appearance on the JiC show on TVA Sports, the Canadiens' coach at the time, Michel Therrien, was willing to revisit this significant memory...

A Major Statement from Michel Therrien on Carey Price and Chris Kreider

Here are his comments.
«I had a feeling we could have made it to the final,» regretted the former head coach of the Canadiens. «I dare to believe that yes, we would have made it with Carey, but we will never know.» - Michel Therrien

Since that incident, there has been a debate. Did Kreider do it intentionally or not? Recent remarks by Brad Marchand have reignited the debate as he stated that the goal in the playoffs is to injure the opponent.
The words of the Bruins' captain confirm Therrien's thoughts. Kreider did nothing to avoid the collision with Price.
«As far as I'm concerned, he made no effort to avoid Carey,» Therrien commented. «You hear Brad Marchand's words [who said that the goal is to injure opposing players in the playoffs]... it's a strange coincidence.» - Michel Therrien
