The Noon Number: 16

Today's Number takes a look at how the Caps have fared after the first intermission

The Noon Number: 16 - Capitals' post-first-period goal differential, second-best in the Conference (Pittsburgh, at 19, is tops in the East, with Chicago (30) and Anaheim (27) leading the way League-wide).

The Caps have scored the most second-period goals in the League, and only Tampa Bay (62) and Pittsburgh (56) have scored more goals after the first period than Washington (46). For more on how middle-stanza dominance has helped the Caps of late, Vogs offers this:

Tuesday’s game against the Leafs marked the sixth straight game in which Washington has put a crooked number on the board in the middle period.

During the life of their eight-game winning streak, the Capitals have outscored their foes by a combined total of 19-4 in the middle period. In their last 18 games, the Caps have a 31-10 advantage over their opponents in the second period. Washington is 14-3-1 in those 18 contests.
