Counting down the days until the 2014-15 season with a look at where the bar was set for last year's playoffs

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

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

...the percentage of points needed to make the 2014 playoffs, which comes out to 93-94 points. The Eastern Conference wrapped up the 2013-14 season with the last "seeded" teams checking in at 94 points apiece, and the two wild cards with 93 each. The Caps will likely need to hit around that mark in the 2014-15 season in order to make their return to the playoffs.

...or they could just win the Metropolitan Division outright. That's an option, too.
