Kevin Hayes and the Rangers fell 2-0 against Ottawa on Sunday night.

Kevin Hayes scored the game-winning goal in the Rangers' 3-2 win over Philadelphia on Friday.

Kevin Hayes and JT Miller scored two goals apiece in a high-scoring 7-2 victory of the New York Rangers over the Vancouver Canucks Tuesday night.

Miller first lit up the scoreboard at the 18:42 minute mark of period one owed by Kevin Hayes with the second goal at 9:08 in the second. Brandon Pirri scored the game winner at 14:38 in the second before Hayes and Miller put more lights on the board in the third. The Rangers continue to be one of the most productive teams in the league with Hayes getting his eighth goal of the season. Miller and Mats Zuccarello earned their seventh goals Tuesday night and the real question most weeks is which of these players should grace the fantasy lineup. That question has been a little difficult to answer recently as each of these players was coming off a three-game streak in which they failed to find the back of the net.

Hayes now has two goals and four assists in nine games with a plus-six rating. His fantasy value has shot up since being put on a line with J.T. Miller and Michael Grabner. He had 14 goals and 36 points last season and should get 40-45 this season.

Kevin Hayes' new two-year contract is reportedly worth $5.2 million.

Hayes completed his sophomore campaign with the Rangers, scoring 14 goals and 36 points in 79 games.

It seems like a fair bridge deal for both sides, buying them time to see what type of player Hayes develops into.

Kevin Hayes will be scratched for a second straight match in Saturday's Game 5 against the Penguins.

Hayes has yet to make an impact on the stat sheet this postseason, and has generally spent time in and out of coach Alain Vigneault's dog house. Should the Rangers push a Game 6, we'll see how things do or don't change.
Apr 23 - 1:39 PM

Kevin Hayes will be a healthy scratch in Game 4 against Pittsburgh on Thursday.

Hayes coming out of the lineup means that Eric Staal moves from wing to center. Hayes has no points in three games this postseason while averaging 10:49 of ice time per game. Dylan McIlrath will join him in the press box, as will black aces Raphael Diaz, Marek Hrivik, Magnus Hellberg, Chris Brown, Nicklas Jensen, Jayson Megna, Daniel Paille, Mat Bodie, Ryan Graves and Chris Summers.
Apr 21 - 6:53 PM
