Chris Kreider is smiling on ice again and looks great out there with fellow Rangers teammates at the MSG Training Center. Yesterday, the Rangers out some photos and clips of Kreider taking shots on Igor Shesterkin. The joy in his face was infectious as the Rangers prepare to take on the Carolina Hurricanes in the qualifying round.

Rangers social media released a clip of Chris Kreider bearing down on goalie, Igor Shesterkin. He even gave off a smirk standing in front for a deflection.

The Rangers playoff hopes were dealt a huge blow when Chris Kreider blocked a shot in the first period with 7 minutes remaining against the Flyers on February 28th. The team announced he had fractured his foot and Jeff Gorton gave a 4-6 week timetable. If there was one silver-lining from the NHL Pause, it allowed Kreider to fully recover and now get ready to play some meaningful hockey.
