The Noon Number: Know Hot Goalies, Know Wins; No Hot Goalies...

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

A look at how the Caps' masked men are the key to victory

1 - Number of regulation plus overtime wins (ROW) the Capitals have so far this season in which their save percentage was below .933 (a 4-3 overtime win over Columbus in mid-November). In their dozen ROWs, Caps goalies have posted a .955 save percentage (.961 in ten regulation wins), and on the campaign, the Caps are 14-1-3 when they get a save percentage of .933 or better, 6-14-3 when they don't (with five of the six wins coming in the shootout and the other being that overtime win over the Jackets).

Better hope the goalies get and stay hot...
