6. Hayes, Hagelin Sink The Penguins
Game 4, Eastern Conference Quarterfinals. The top seeded New York Rangers held a 2-1 lead against the Pittsburgh Penguins, and were level at one heading into overtime. Rookie forward Kevin Hayes was the hero, tapping in a Carl Hagelin shot from point blank range to send the Rangers back to Madison Square Garden up three games to one.
In Game 5, overtime was necessary once again. This time, Hagelin was the hero, slotting a shot past goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury at the near post to send the Rangers to the Eastern Conference Semi finals. The final score was 2-1, which, coincidentially, was the scoreline in all four of the Rangers victories in the series.
