PHILADELPHIA - Kevin Hayes scored against his former team, Jake Voracek had a goal and two assists and the Flyers beat the New York Rangers 4-1.

James van Reimsdyk and Carsen Twarynski also scored for Philadelphia. Carter Hart stopped all 11 shots he faced in the first two periods, and JF Berube had seven saves in the third.

Nick Jones scored for the Rangers and Igor Shesterkin stoped 36 shots.

It was the first time Hayes and Philadelphia coach Alain Vigneault faced the Rangers since their departures. Vigneault was fired following the final game of the 2017-18 season and Hayes was traded to Winnipeg on Feb. 25. Hayes' rights as an impending free agent were dealt to Philadelphia after the season and he subsequently signed a new deal.
