1 - Number of former Capitals (Dainius Zubrus) who will play in this year's Stanley Cup Finals, which get underway tonight.

Zubrus will become only the third former Cap to play in the Finals since the lockout, joining Sergei Gonchar (twice) and Matt Cooke in that exclusive grouping (Cristobal Huet dressed but never played for Chicago in 2010).
