The Noon Number

.419 - Combined winning percentage for Michal Neuvirth and Semyon Varlamov against teams that would qualify for the playoffs if the season ended today. In the 33 games over which that record was amassed, the Caps' top two netminders have gone 13-12-6 with a 2.64 Goals Against Average and a .908 save percentage.

Here's a look at how each of the Caps' top three backstops has fared against playoff and non-playoff opponents:

Of note, Neuvirth has won just three of 13 starts against current playoff teams since November 17 (Pittsburgh twice and Philadelphia earlier in the week), and Varlamov has just two wins in eight starts against current playoff teams since the Winter Classic (Tampa Bay and Buffalo back in February). But each man has won his last start against a current playoff team... so there's that.
