NHL - US Sports: Rangers comfortable coming from behind

Forward Chris Kreider praised the New York Rangers' ability to re-focus and come from behind in games as they aim to establish themselves as Stanley Cup contenders. 

The Rangers, 16/1 to be crowned Stanley Cup Champions in 2021/22, turned a deficit into a win for the second time in a week on Tuesday to beat the Anaheim Ducks 4-3 on home ice.

Character pleases Kreider

The victory was New York's 20th come-from-behind win this season, which is tied with the Columbus Blue Jackets for the most in the NHL.

30-year-old Kreider scored the third period equaliser for the Rangers against the Ducks taking his season tally to 39 goals, 15 assists and 54 points.

Prior to this season, the wingers best goal tally was in 2018/19 when he scored 28 in 79 regular season games.

Kreider pleased with focus

Kreider's 39 goals in 60 appearances this season ranks joint-second in the NHL, helping New York to a 38-17-5 record and second place in the Metropolitan Division.

He said to the media after beating the Ducks: "I think it speaks to how focused this group is on accomplishing our first goal to make the playoffs. So regardless if the game is not going well or you don't feel like you're going well individually guys are able to refocus and help the team try to win a hockey game… It's ultimately something everyone has bought into."
