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.

Kevin Hayes might be scratched Wednesday night against Boston.

He was used as a place holder for Rick Nash's spot alongside Derick Brassard and Jesper Fast at Tuesday's practice. "Obviously not where it should be," Hayes said when asked to assess his game. "Things aren't going my way. I'm working hard, just taking it day by day. It's just not getting the bounces and not helping your team win. That's about it." Coach Alain Vigneault wants more assertiveness and better defensive play from Hayes.

Kevin Hayes ended his personal 10 games goal drought during Thursdays' 4-3 overtime loss to the Kings.

It was a pretty goal as Hayes found the puck as it squirted to him, looked up, and picked his spot past a sprawling Jonathan Quick. Now with 11 goals and 31 points this season, it's safe to say Hayes' sophomore campaign has been a classic sophomore-slump. But don't give up hope on the talented youngster if you're in a dynasty league just yet.

Coach Alain Vigneault is not happy with the effort of Kevin Hayes.

Hayes has been a healthy scratch the last two games. "I think it has to be clear that Kevin Hayes the person, I think he’s a great kid," Vigneault said. "I really enjoy him. The hockey player right now is not totally doing it for me. Two different things. But the hockey player the last little while has been focusing on his game, trying to improve, and I’m confident that he’s gonna do that. And we need him. He’s a good player. He needs to find his game." Hayes could find his way back into the lineup as the Rangers have been struggling of late.
