Counting down the days until the 2014-15 season with a look back at the Caps' penchant for opening the scoring in 2013-14.

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

... the number of times the Caps scored first last season, good for 13th in the League (Los Angeles led with 52 opening tallies, and Columbus, surprisingly, was right behind them with 50). Unfortunately for the Caps, their .667 win percentage when scoring first ranked 20th in the League, and their .726 points percentage was 19th.
