Dave Maloney said on MSG last night, “Chris Kreider is still figuring out how to use his immense strength and powerful body that he has. That is a five minute penalty and a game misconduct, I would be surprised if there is anything further than that. Brodin has no chance. Chris has to learn how to turn away, he is a powerful man, you can’t hit him that way.”

Chris Kreider2:35PM: On Habs Breakfast on TSN 690 yesterday, they said “I would single out Jarred Tinordi to go after Kreider, if anyone, he has the size and reach….my theory is that Jarred Tinordi should grab Chris Kreider by the collar and knock him out, fine, just do it, and send a message to anyone who will go after Carey Price this year. Seriously…..Chris Kreider went skates up into Carey Price’s knee and took him out for the season. Kreider has done this on numerous occasions. I’m not saying that it will happen, maybe it should, if Chris Kreider gets into the blue paint tonight, somebody has to do something. That is for sure, maybe you don’t do something out of nowhere but if he does get into Carey Price’s personal space, somebody has to do something.”
