That is Gretzky-like and it has moved Carter into second place in NHL scoring with 19 points, one behind teammate Anze Kopitar. He is also second in goals with eight, one behind fellow King Marian Gaborik. "It goes back to the confidence thing," Mike Richards said of Carter. "When you have confidence, it just seems like the net gets bigger, and when you don't have confidence it seems like it shrinks a little bit. He steps up in big times. He's a big goal scorer, and that whole line has created a lot for momentum of our hockey team throughout games."
