The Game Has Started Clicking For Michael Rasmussen

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

...he finished with an NHL career-high 15 goals, including seven over the final 16 games. In his last five games of the season, Rasmussen scored three goals, had one assist and put 16 shots on net.

The 6-foot-6, 210-pound center played with a purpose on both ends of the ice, and he was the type of physical force opponents will, or could, have difficulty matching up with in the future.

"(The season) was positive overall,” Rasmussen said during a season-ending media call. “I took a lot of strides in the right direction, got better at some stuff I needed to get better at. I just gained more experience, so individually it was good for me.”

Larkin talked about the confidence Rasmussen was playing with, and it was apparent. Completing this third NHL season, and only being 23, the NHL game was beginning to become natural and he was able to slow it down.

"It just kind of comes with confidence and with figuring things out," Rasmussen said. "Maybe I just started to kind of figure it out, maybe got some luck. I can't really put a finger on it. I try to play the same kind of way, play hard the right way.

"But maybe it's just kind of me slowly understanding it and stuff clicking for me."

How does he start the coming season.

I’m cautiously encouraged.

But - and Rasmussen kind of hints at this - a player can
get on a roll when it’s late in the season and some of the pressure is off.
