A look at the ice cold Capitals offense

4 - Number of times in their last five games that the Capitals have scored just one goal, the most times they've been held to a single goal or less over a five-game span since October 14-25, 2003, when they similarly scored once four times for Bruce Cassidy (Robert Lang, Dainius Zubrus, Peter Bondra and Jaromir Jagr provided those lone goals).

In case you're wondering, the team record for one-goal-or-less outputs over the course of a season is 30 in 1998-99 (how's that for a disappointing follow-up to the team's only Finals appearance?), one more than they had in their abysmal inaugural campaign and three more than in the firesale season of 2003-04. The 2013-14 team has now done it 13 times, so that record seems pretty safe, recent cold spell notwithstanding.
