No. 2 — Carl Hagelin (1g, 1a, 2p)

One of the most consistent players throughout this lockout-shortened season, Carl Hagelin has continually proved to be a factor for the Rangers. His phenomenal speed creates opportunities not only for himself, but for his teammates as well. The 24-year-old picked up an assist on Monday night and followed it up with a goal Tuesday against the Devils to give the Rangers a 2-1 lead in the first period.

During their loss to the Panthers on Thursday, Hags was the most noticeable Ranger on the ice. He was constantly using his speed to get in on the fore-check and create chances for his line. His play was rewarded by head coach John Tortorella, and Hagelin set a new career-high with 24:26 of ice time.
