32.4 – Average shots per game for the Caps over their last 5 games, up from 24.6 in the 5 games prior (and a season-long rate of 27.6, tied for fourth-lowest in the NHL). They are just 1-3-1 during that span, putting up their lowest shot total of the five in their one win against Florida.

The Caps have only cracked the 30-shot mark eight times under Dale Hunter, three of which have come in the last five games – prior to their 36-shot performance against the Bruins, the Caps hadn't had at least 30 shots in a game since January 7.
