Rangers’ Kreider not disciplined for hit

Chris Kreider doesn’t quite know what he could or should have done differently when he shouldered Columbus’ Fedor Tyutin into the boards 21 seconds into the second period Monday, only to receive a five-minute boarding major and game misconduct when the defenseman stayed down on the ice with an apparent injury that turned out to be a charley horse. “I pulled up, I didn’t...

No supplementary discipline for Kreider

Per Larry Brooks, the NHL Department of Player Safety will not pursue supplementary discipline on winger Chris Kreider for his hit on Fedor Tyutin last night.
