5 - Consecutive one-goal games the Caps have played, tied for the most in the regular season since a six-game span in October, 2008.

Over the current stretch (during which the Caps are 2-1-2), the Caps have played a total of 310 minutes of hockey, 97.8% of which has been played with the score within one goal (the Caps had a brief two-goal lead in Tampa). With 27 one-goal games played on the season, the Caps trail only New Jersey (30) in that stat (and have a record of 13-6-8).
