The Noon Countdown: Kuzya Can

Counting down the days to the 2015-16 season with a look at last season's shootout leader.

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

5 - Number of days remaining until the 2015-16 season. But it's also...

...the number of goals scored by Evgeny Kuznetsov in the shootout last season (in nine attempts, a 55.6% conversion rate) - tops among all 14 different Caps to take a turn in the skills competition in 2014-15. It's also one more than the four shootout goals (on 11 attempts) scored by T.J. Oshie in St. Louis last year... which means the Caps now have a pretty lethal one-two shootout punch, should they require it.
