Kevin Hayes got his name in the Rangers' record books with his overtime goal on Wednesday.

Hayes became the first Rangers rookie to ever net an overtime goal on the road in a playoff game. He also became the first Rangers player to have his first career playoff goal come in overtime since Don Murdoch did it on April 13, 1978. "This was his best game of the series," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said of Hayes. "We need him to play the way he's played for us throughout the year. Obviously, this is playoff hockey and a bigger stage. He's learning how to deal with it with the help of his teammates and tonight he scored a big goal and that's going to help his confidence and he'll be better moving forward."
