Carl was about the same build as Lewis and had many of his attributes,
being fast and a smart stickhandler. He led his the team offensively, scoring goals in bunches
. In one game in his rookie season he scored three goals in 1 minute and 52 seconds, a record that would stand until Bill Mosienko scored his famous 21 second hat trick in 1951-52. In the same game
he dropped the gloves with Red Horner, universally considered hockey's baddest man.
He was on a first place team and Stanley Cup winner in 1942-43 playing on the top line with Syd Howe and Mud Bruneteau.
In the playoffs he led the scorers
with 6 goals and 8 assists.
The following year was his best individual season when he scored a whopping 36 goals and had 73 points in 50 games in 1943-44. He finished
2nd in NHL goal scoring and 4th in NHL point scoring
In the final game of the playoff series with Boston in the 1944-45 season, he practically won the game single-handedly by scoring 4 goals as the Red Wings won 5-3
. The Red Wings would come up short against the Toronto Maple Leafs in the Stanley Cup finals, however.
