7 - Number of games the Capitals have lost by more than one goal this season, fewest in the League (Nashville has the second-fewest losses by two or more with nine).
Of note, all but four teams have lost as many games by three or more goals as the Caps have lost by two or more, led by Buffalo's 22 losses by at least three.
Here's a list of the Caps' seven multi-goal losses:
|October 26||at Vancouver||2-4*|
|November 15||at St. Louis||1-4|
|November 29||at Toronto||2-6|
|December 23||at N.Y. Rangers||2-4|
|February 14||at Los Angeles||1-3|
* Includes an empty net goal-against.
Unsurprisingly in light of the above, the Caps' 38 one-goal decisions are the most in the League.
