Patching hole in roof

I removed our fireplace. Now there is a 3'x6' hole in the roof. We have a vaulted ceiling. To patch the roof should I use some kind of metal supports to hold up the new joist sections or just toenail them in? I want to make very sure I do this correctly.

For a small section like this, either way would be fine. It might be easier to keep everything lined up using joist hangers because toenailing tends to move the boards unless you are using a pneumatic nailer.
