16 - Number of wins (to go along with six regulation losses and four overtime/shootout losses) the Caps have in the 26 games they've played under Bruce Boudreau after three or more days off since their previous game (and no, the first games of the season don't count). The team is 13-2-3 in their last 18 such games (but 1-2-1 in their last four) and had a ten-game win streak snapped last February.
But when it's rained, it's poured - in those six regulation losses, the Caps have been outscored 28-7 (including last February's 6-0 drubbing at the hands of the Rangers).
Let's hope the team has used these past four days wisely and is ready to go tonight in Edmonton...
