So, the Rangers will probably be without Kevin Hayes for a little while.
Early in the first half of the first period, Hayes was slow to get up after Vegas Golden Knights defenseman Nate Schmidt rode him hard into the boards:

The only update the Rangers have offered thus far was a mid-game report that he was being evaluated for a lower-body injury:
OFFICIAL: #NYR Kevin Hayes – lower
body – being evaluated

While the Rangers have yet to update the situation since, Hayes did miss the remainder of the game, which can’t be seen as a good sign.
Updates will be provided as they’re announced.
