After a short dry spell, Carl has put up 4a in his last 3gp.

This means that after failing to score a point in the first seven games, Carl has gone 7-8-15 in his last 17gp and 6-7-13 in his last 14gp. All points but one were scored at ES. The Rangers shoot 35.1 shots per 60 minutes of 5v5 hockey when he is on the ice which is 3rd in the NHL. His Corsi Rel. is among the top of the league. His offensive percentages are sustainable, maybe even on the low side.

IMO, Hagelin is emerging as a legit 1st line LW. He has consistently raised the game of his linemates throughout his Ranger career, and I believe that he has raised Nash's game as much as the other way around. Nash's 10 game point streak started vs. Tampa, that was the first game they started on a line together. From that point on Carl has gone 14gp-6g-7a-13p, and Nash 10gp-7g-9a-16p.
