The Noon Countdown: Short but Sweet

Counting down the days until the 2014-15 season with a look at some shorthanded strikes

2 - Number of days remaining until the Caps open the 2014-15 season. But it's also...

...the number of shorthanded goals scored by Joel Ward in 2013-14, which led the team. Ward is one of just five Caps to have more than one shorthanded goal in a season since 2007-08; the last time a Cap had more than two shorties in a single season was back in 2006-07, when Matt Pettinger (3), Boyd Gordon (2), Brooks Laich (3) and Chris Clark (4) feasted on other teams' power plays.
