Kreider has learned how to play the pro game. He is using his size and strength. Too bad Kreider wasn't given the opportunity until game 4 and down 3-0 in the series. Getting pucks out of the zone. Being hard on the puck. Playing a heavy game. That's how you win in the playoffs.

He received a fine how-do-you-do early in the game when he was in a puck pursuit with Chris Kreider and the former Boston College star got under Seidenberg, who usually delivers the hits, and put him on his backside. Kreider did it once more before the shift was over and it looked like Seidenberg’s comeback would be short-lived. It took a while for the defenseman to gather himself before finally getting up.

“They were hard hits,” said Seidenberg, who was on the ice for two of the Bruins goals. “I’m fine. He’s a thick kid, and usually that doesn’t happen, but I just lost balance. It was a good hit.”

On being slow to get up, Seidenberg said, “I lost a little bit of my breath. That came back a little bit later, but for the most part, again, it was a good hit. You just have to shake it off and keep going.”
