Space advantage in the French defense

In this battle I got the classical advantage of good versus bad minor piece, but the more important was the pawn advance on the kingside which we need to do when the center is closed. We need to attack on the side where we are stronger, need to gain space and need to break in. It happened in this game.

    Great game. I have question...why 13. Kxd2 instead of Nxd2? He was at least 3 moves from putting his rook on the b file and seems like you would have wanted to castle long?
