The Noon Countdown: Early Risers

Counting down the days until the 2015-16 season with a look at the Caps' ability to win after scoring the game's first goal

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

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

... the number of regulation losses for the 2014-15 Caps when they scored the game's first goal, the fewest in the League. It also gave them the second-highest win total in the League, and the NHL's best win percentage (.860).

Conclusion? Score early, score often, win games.
