The Noon Number

5 - Number of NHL forwards who are averaging more than two-and-a-half minutes of shorthanded ice time and two minutes on the power-play per game - Tomas Plekanec, Jordan Staal, Shawn Horcoff, Matt Read and Brooks Laich.

Laich has also faced the toughest competition of all Caps skaters (and among the hardest competition in the League) and has taken 30% of the team's faceoffs on the season.

Tough minutes to replace, those.
