I fail to see how liquid nitrogen could be deployed explosively. It is one of the most volatile substances around, and boils at −195.79 °C. This means that at room temperature, it is a gas, rather than a liquid.
I would have thought that detonation which would be able to spread the stuff over a wide enough area to flash freeze the entire area, would have to be pretty hot, and although it would be of a very short duration, it would be enough to potentially change the state of the liquid nitrogen, beyond its ability to retain its ability to rapidly freeze the target area.
