17 - Number of Capitals skaters with at least one point through five games, a mark which took the team 11 games to reach a season ago. Of note, only Nate Schmidt has dressed for more than two games and been held scoreless, as the Caps have scored at least two even-strength goals with each of their four lines on the ice and at least two power-play goals from each extra-man unit. That's some impressive early-season balance.
