During the first period of tonight’s game versus the Devils, Chris Kreider scored a power play goal at 17:57 of the first period.
The goal was Kreider’s league-leading 25th power play goal of the season. In doing so by neatly redirecting an Artemi Panarin pass at the side of the Devils’ net, it allowed him to pass Jaromir Jagr for a new single season franchise record in PPG’s.
The goal was his 47th. That moves him within three of becoming part of the exclusive Rangers’ 50 Goal Club. It only features Vic Hadfield (50), Adam Graves (52) and Jaromir Jagr (54).
Kreider becomes the first NHL player to notch 25 power play goals since Alex Ovechkin in ’14-15.
The Rangers lead the Devils 2-1 at the start of the second period.
