Yann Sommer was forced into action to keep his side ahead later in the first half as he reacted to Leonardo Bittencourt's powerful strike with a vital push past the post.
Kruse could have made the hosts pay for the miss moments later, but his curled effort from the edge of the box was kept out by Ron-Robert Zieler.
Monchengladbach doubled their advantage four minutes into the second half through Granit Xhaka, who beat the wall and Zieler with swerving free kick from 25 yards.
Hannover's challenge quickly faded for the second goal as Monchengladbach dominated possession with apparent ease.
The victory was completed in the final minute when Kruse fired the ball into the roof of the net after being picked out in a congested box by Thorgan Hazard.
