The Noon Number: Third Period's a Charm

A look at how the Caps have fared after 40 minutes

Patrick Smith

6 - Number of wins the Capitals have when trailing after two periods (including last night's comeback victory over the Jets), tied for second-most in the League. The Caps are also one of nine teams without a regulation loss when leading after two periods. Of course, perhaps those numbers aren't particularly surprising when you consider that the Caps have had more chances to win games when trailing after two (26) than all but six teams, and have had a lead after 40 minutes fewer times (18) than all but six teams as well.
