Looking at the Caps' shot differential Saturday night... and why it stands out

13 - The Caps' shot differential from Saturday night's win over Montreal, tied for their fourth-highest positive shot differential - but their highest in a win on the season. The other four times they've outshot their opponent by at least 13 have all been losses:

Date Result Opp SF SA Differential
Dec 29 '13 SOL Buffalo 50 17 33
Nov 23 '13 SOL Toronto 50 28 22
Jan 04 '14 L Minnesota 30 11 19
Jan 25 '14 W Montreal 34 21 13
Oct 12 '13 L Colorado 41 28 13


Prior to Saturday's win, the team's previous high in a win was plus-seven against Columbus on October 12; their largest differential in a regulation win, a plus-five against the Rangers on December 8.
