Counting down the days until the 2014-15 season with a look at Backstrom's production outside of the Metropolitan Division.

USA TODAY Sports

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

...the number of points by Nicklas Backstrom against non-Metropolitan Division opponents in 2013-14, second-most on the team behind only Alex Ovechkin and sixth-most in the League. Backstrom's point-per-game pace outside of the division was slightly better than the pace he set against the Metropolitan, with 27 points in 30 division games (0.90 points/game).
