The Noon Number: 53

Today's Number looks at the Caps' dynamic duo leading the way

The Noon Number: 53 - Combined points for Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom over the last 17 games, a span over which the Caps have gone 14-2-1.

Ovechkin's 19 goals over this stretch would have him 13th in the League if he hadn't played another game all year (and his 29 points would be good for 80th-best in the League in scoring), and Backstrom's 19 helpers would be the 71st highest total (and have him tied with John Tavares and a host of other big names).
