Great read:

When Kreider came back down to the Whale from the Rangers February 28, I know the plan was to play him in all situations, to challenge him with all kinds of responsibility and look for him to round out his game, and that seems to be exactly what has happened. Kreider has six goals and an assist in eight games since his return and has excelled on special teams. Three of those six goals have been power-play tallies, and another was Kreider’s first career shorthanded goal as a pro. Kreider and his recent linemates, fellow Boston College product Benn Ferriero and team points leader Kris Newbury, had one bad defensive game, the 4-3 loss at Adirondack when they were on the ice for all four goals-against, but other than that no problems in the defensive zone, which had been an area of concern for Kreider in his previous stays in the AHL.
