The Noon Number: Lots and Lots of Shots

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

A look at the flood gates, which have opened. Wide.

49 - Total by which the Capitals have been out-shot over their last two games, the largest negative shots-on-goal differential over a two-game span for the team since they posted that same number between January 31 and February 3, 2004 (do yourself a favor and don't click through to see those rosters if you're reading this at lunch).

And in case you're wondering (and want to be further depressed), the 49-shot differential is actually second in recent years to a two-game 58-shot positive delta that the team amassed... while losing Games 6 and 7 to Montreal in April of 2010.
