The Noon Number: 5

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Today's Number looks at the Caps' skills (or lack thereof) in 5-on-3 situations

The Noon Number: 5 - Caps' goal differential in five-on-three situations. The Caps have scored one goal this season with a two-man advantage, and have given up a League-leading six goals while three-on-five. Winnipeg is the only other team with as high a differential (or even with a differential greater than two), having given up five goals at three-on-five and scoring exactly zero.

Through a full 82-game slate last year the Caps only allowed two goals while down two men and scored three five-on-three goals of their own; the previous two seasons they killed off 100% of 3-on-5 situations, scoring four goals with a two-man advantage in 2010-11 and a whopping eight in 2009-10.
