Hard to count a shortened season. He pro-rated to 39 goals last year. In fact, he's only not pro-rated to 30 goals or more over 82 twice in his career. Once was his rookie season. The other time was 2006-07, and he pro-rated to 29.52 over 82 games. Besides last season, those are also the only two years he hasn't actually scored 30.

Good to see him picking it up. Hopefully he continues it after the Olympics. As go Lundqvist and Nash, so will go the Rangers. It's no coincidence that his improved play combined with Lundqvist's come with more wins.
