The Noon Number

2 - Number of 40-plus save shutouts by Capitals goaltenders since Clint Malarchuk shutout the Flyers with 42 stops on January 26, 1989; Brent Johnson's 46-save whitewashing of Ottawa (April 1, 2006) and Tomas Vokoun's 42-save goose-egg last night. Also...

2 - Number of days in between Vokoun's last two shutouts, the shortest span by a Caps goalie since Olaf Kolzig blanked Florida and Boston (by identical 1-0 scores) on January 12 and 14, 2002.

And, since you're wondering, Caps netminders have posted shutouts on back-to-back days three times in franchise history: Jim Carey topped the Bruins (2-0) and Flyers (3-0) on March 2 and 3, 1996, nearly a year after holding the Whalers (5-0) and Senators (1-0) scoreless on March 20 and 21, 1995, and Al Jensen blanked the Penguins (1-0) and Devils (2-0) on October 25 and 26, 1983.
