The Noon Number: Rapid Response

A look at how the Caps have turned the tables on an old bugaboo

Rob Carr

7 - Number of times the Capitals have scored within two minutes after an opponent's goal so far this season (including twice against Calgary on Tuesday night), something they only did ten times last season despite, uh, lots of opportunities.

And since you're curious, the flip side of the coin - after surrendering 29 goals last season within two minutes after scoring one of their own, the Caps have only allowed one such goal so far this year (Edmonton).

So at least that issue seems to be behind us... we hope.
