A look at how quick the Caps have been to give back that which they've just taken

Bruce Bennett

8 - Number of times so far this season that the Capitals have surrendered a goal less than two-and-a-half minutes after scoring one themselves, with six of those coming in less than two minutes after the Caps' marker (and a total of 13 coming within five minutes). Put another way, one-quarter of the 32 goals the Caps have scored this season have been answered with an opposition tally within within 150 seconds of game time.

The eight goals the Caps have allowed within two-and-a-half minutes after scoring so far this season:
