The veteran met with the media today via Zoom and talked about what he expected from playoff games in empty arenas. “I don’t expect the hockey to be any less competitive,” Kreider answered. “It will be a different feel, not having that electricity and noise in the building, but it’s up to us on the bench and as teammates to bring that energy.”
