The Noon Number: 7

Today's Number takes a look at the Capitals inability to hold leads

Bruce Bennett

The Noon Number: 7 - Number of games this season in which the Caps have led but lost in regulation, which represents more than half of their losses. The Caps have the third-worst winning percentage in the League when scoring first (.500) and when leading after two periods (.667), and the second-worst winning percentage when leading after one period (.500). And, as Mike Vogel notes, "Washington was tied or leading midway through eight of its 13 regulation losses. ... In three of their losses, the Caps have held a lead going into the third period.
