New York Islanders

held a steady 1-0 lead over the Rangers, but with a pair of penalties, the Rangers were able to shift the momentum in their favor. Just 18 seconds after the Islanders killed their third penalty of the game,

Mats Zuccarello

gave a long stretch pass to Hayes, who then showed an incredible work rate to hold off defenseman,

Thomas Hickey
