Just the fact that he's getting more shots on net and finding open places on the ice, chasing down pucks, and holding onto them when he gets them, makes him play 100x better. Earlier he just seemed to kind of wait around for something to happen and then react, whereas in the last couple of games he's been moving around and finding openings and retrieving pucks.

Hope he keeps it up. Honestly he probably has the hardest wrist shot on the team at this point since Gaborik's seems to have lost a lot of zip, so as long as he can keep shooting it, I expect to see him get goals or create goals off of rebounds, etc.
