89 - Number of blocked shots with which the Caps have been credited during their current four-game win streak (blocking at least 20 in each game, something they did once under Bruce Boudreau this season), a pace which would easily lead the League over the course of the season. And while that might sound like a good thing... it isn't, necessarily. As Colby Cosh put it:
The counting of blocked shots has a problem similar to the counting of double plays turned by a team in baseball; they correlate negatively, if at all, with the winning of games. An individual blocked shot might have a positive value—though even that’s certainly not true in every case—and you want players who are willing to block them. But it’s better not to give up lots of opportunities for blocked shots.
