The Noon Number: Dmitry and Dmitri

A look at the minimalist work done by Caps' defensemen

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

2 - Number of defensemen in franchise history who have scored the lone goal for the Caps in a 1-0 regular-season victory. Dmitri Mironov was the first to accomplish the feat when he scored against the Islanders on November 24, 2000, and Dmitry Orlov repeated it with his tally against the Oilers Monday night.

Mike Green remains the only Caps' defenseman to help the team to a 1-0 victory in the playoffs, picking up the overtime game-winner in Game 2 against the Rangers on May 4, 2013.
