3 - Number of Capitals (Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom and Brooks Laich) who had three points in last night's win over Florida, marking the second time this season the Caps have had a trio of three-point performers (the other time was in the 7-0 win over Philadelphia in which they had three points each from Backstrom, Mikhail Grabovksi, Jason Chimera and Joel Ward).

On the season, the Caps have 23 three-point performances, led by Backstrom's seven and Ovechkin's six, which rank second and fourth in the League.
