I think Kreider will show more and more grit, and we need that kind of play.
I've been waiting for Kreider to drop the gloves since the Caps game, when he and Laich got into it a bit. After they looked like they were going to go--Kreider got benched or was "injured" and didn't see the ice again in the third period. With all the talent that he has--especially his speed and hands that he showed on his goal tonight; he also likes to play physical. I think it was definitely time for him to get his first fight under his belt, that way it sends a message to the rest of the league that he can handle himself, when push comes to shove. He's not afraid to handle his business. I don't want this to become a new facet to his game, on a regular basis. But once in a while, it's good to see someone other than Dorsett, Cally, or even Boyle "try" to take care of business.
