The Noon Number: 1

Bruce Bennett

Today's number looks at how rarely Alex Ovechkin is kept off the score sheet in consecutive games in the postseason.

The Noon Number (Mountain Time Edition): 1 — Times during which Alex Ovechkin has ever been held pointless in consecutive playoff games by the same team, which, as you well know, occurred in games three and four of the current series between the Capitals and the Rangers. Last postseason he was pointless in Game 7 against Boston in the conference quarterfinals, and in Game 1 against New York in the conference semifinals , which is the only other time he's gone pointless in consecutive playoff games.

In 55 career playoff games, Alex has put up a goose egg only 16 times (29%). In those games the Capitals have posted a record of 5-11.
