19 - Number of games this season that the Capitals have led after two periods, the fewest in the NHL (though, at 19-0-0, the Caps are one of only two teams to have an unblemished record when leading after forty minutes). The team they'll face tonight, the Tampa Bay Lightning, has the second-fewest leads heading into the third period (22, tied with Minnesota), but, interestingly, one team has been ahead after two frames in the last three meetings between these two teams, with that leader winning all three.
