Ask any NHL fan who the fastest player in the league is and they won't take long to give you an answer. Nathan MacKinnon, Michael Grabner and Patrick Kane are all on the top of that list with good reason.
But one thing those players have in common is their size. They're smaller players, which naturally lends to their elite speed.
So can someone explain Chris Kreider? The large (he's 6'3) New York Rangers winger has terrified the Montreal Canadiens in Game 1. He's split the defense multiple times, usually resulting in nasty collisions with the end boards or Canadiens goalie Carey Price. But the best example of Kreider's elite speed came on his late second period goal that put New York up 3-1.
Keep an eye on Kreider in the bottom right corner and watch where he ends up.
It's safe to say Chris Kreider has cemented his place as a difference maker in this series.
