Jesper Fast and Jimmy Vesey switched lines on Saturday and it paid off for both as each scored in the Rangers' 5-2 win over New Jersey.

Fast moved up to the Rick Nash-Kevin Hayes line while Vesey played alongside Boo Nieves and Paul Carey. Fast has three goals in three straight games and six in his last eight as he now has seven goals and 14 points in 24 games. He is becoming fantasy-relevant.

It was Fast's first career multi-goal game. He has three markers and 10 points in 17 contests in 2017-18. He's not a major offensive contributor, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him top his career-high of 30 points.

Jesper Fast argued that he didn't return from his hip surgery early because of the Rangers' cold start.

Fast made his season debut on Saturday after the Rangers began the season 1-4-0. They lost again on Saturday, but Fast was active with seven hits. "Of course you want to help the team, but I felt good the last two weeks, just needed to get back to 100 percent to play games," Fast said. "That was the decision we made." He was originally projected to return in late October, so the decision to use him on Saturday did come as something of a surprise. Still, his performance on Saturday was encouraging and he wouldn't be the first player who was able to return ahead of schedule.
