Counting down the days until the 2014-15 season with a look at the Caps' not-so-positive shot differential last year.

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

...the number of games in which the Caps were outshot in 2013-14, the third-most in the League behind only Toronto and Buffalo (65 apiece).

They did manage to pick up points in 35 of those 58, with a record of 25-23-10 when ceding more shots to their opponent, and had the fourth-most wins (trailing the Avalanche's whopping 35, as well as Toronto at 30 and Montreal at 26). But that's at least partly due to the sheer volume of opportunities, and their win percentage in those games ranked near the bottom of the League, 25th-best at just over 43%.
