Today's Noon Number: 3 - Consecutive shots on goal on which the Penguins scored during the second period of yesterday's 6-3 win over the Caps, turning a 2-2 game into a 5-2 game in a span of seven minutes.

Yesterday's outburst marked the second and third times this season that the Caps have yielded goals on back-to-back opposition shots on goal (opening night being the other time), and three more times opponents have scored with a single shot on goal in between tallies.
