Chris Kreider was visibly agitated after last night’s game when someone asked about Mika Zibanejad’s lack of production. “He’s doing an unbelievable job defensively,” Kreider shot back. “He’s eating up the top players in the league and he’s not exactly getting the O-zone starts because he’s getting those tough matchups.”

Kreider concluded by saying, “I think he’s doing a bang up job and he’s doing everything to help our team win.” When he finished answering the question, you can see Kreider just looking in the sky agitated and shaking his head.
