Rangers’ Kevin Hayes Scores on Great Individual Effort (Video)

Kevin Hayes goal vs. Islanders

The Rangers and Islanders squared off last night at the Nassau Coliseum in a hotly contested battle for top spot in the Metropolitan Division.

The Rangers emerged from this hotly-contested battle with a 2-1 victory, moving them to within one point of the Isles for top spot with four games in hand. And although they needed a solid team effort in order to hold off their interstate rivals, it was an individual effort from rookie forward Kevin Hayes that helped them even the score at 1-1 in the second period.

Watch as Hayes shrugs off one defender before burying the spin-o-rama past Islanders goalie Jaroslav Halak:
