62 - Number of days remaining until the Caps open the 2014-15 season. But it's also...
...the number of points accumulated by Martin Erat, Mikhail Grabovski and Dustin Penner as Caps in 2013-14.
- Grabovski's season was shortened a bit by injuries, but he had 35 points in the 58 games in which he played for the Caps, with 13 goals (three of which were scored in the season's opening game) and 22 assists. He signed a four-year deal with the Islanders last month.
- Erat appeared in 53 games for the Caps last season, picking up 24 points (one goal, 23 assists) before being flipped to the Coyotes at the trade deadline.
- And as Erat departed DC, Dustin Penner was brought into the fold, and picked up a goal and two assists in his 18 games as a Cap. He is currently an unrestricted free agent.
