The Noon Number

1 - Number of times in Capitals' history they've had two goaltenders under the age of 25 (as of February 1) each play 30 or more games in a season; in 1982-83, 24-year-old Pat Riggin appeared in 40 games and 23-year-old Al Jensen played in 38 (of note, the duo won the Jennings Trophy the following season).

The Caps may very well match that mark in 2012-13 with Michal Neuvirth (who will turn 25 in late-March) and Braden Holtby (who will be 23 in September). Since the lockout, the only team to have two netminders fit the above criteria in the same season is the Montreal Canadiens with Carey Price and Jaroslav Halak in both 2008-09 and 2009-10.
