Chris Kreider's Power-Play Goal Gives Rangers 2-1 Lead

And just that quickly, the New York Rangers have the lead. Chris Kreider's power-play goal has the home team up 2-1 in a game that seemed early like it would be taken over by the New Jersey Devils. The goal was originally credited to Anton Stralman, but upon review was correctly changed to give the rookie his fourth goal of these playoffs.

In all, this may have been the worst penalty Travis Zajac has ever taken. (Maybe not, but it was certainly insulting.)

It was a tough penalty to take in the first place, an interference call while the Devils were pinned down in their own end. But after the call, Zajac had to stand and ponder the penalty as the Madison Square Garden maintenance crew tried for several minutes to open the penalty box door. Then, while resting in the box, Kreider gave his team the lead, capitalizing on Zajac's mistake.
