The Noon Number: Zeros for Dueling Heroes

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

5 - Number of regular-season games, including last night, in which both Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby have been held without a point when facing off against one another.

The two have gone head to head a total of 34 times over the course of their respective careers (with Crosby having missed six of the Caps-Pens showdowns due to injury); in those 34 meetings, Crosby has gone pointless seven different times, with Ovechkin kept off the scoresheet 14 times.
