If Chris Kreider were a baseball pitcher and Minnesota Wild goalie Niklas Backstrom the batter, there would be no better description for what took place late in the third period of Sunday's 4-1 Rangers win at The Garden then saying that Kreider slipped a changeup by the surprised Backstrom.

Watch here as Kreider fans on his left wing shot, only to see the puck somehow slip past Backstrom with 7:14 to play in the third period, and then watch Kreider's reaction to his ninth goal of the season.
