The Noon Number

2,184 - Number of days since the Caps last played a game without both Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom (January 31, 2006), which they'll almost certainly do tonight when they face Boston.

Since Backstrom entered the League, the duo has combined for 820 points in 720 man-games (regular season), including 323 goals.

(And in case you're wondering, the last time the team played without Ovechkin, Backstrom or Mike Green was April 4, 2004... before any of the three was drafted, 2,851 days ago.)
