22 - Number of all-situation shot attempts for Alex Ovechkin last night (nine ended up on-goal, ten were blocked and three missed the net). Those 22 were the second-highest total for an individual this season (Erik Karlsson had 23 against Vancouver), the fourth-most for Ovechkin in the available data set (since the start of the 2007-08 season; 24 against Atlanta in April 5, 2009) and the most since April 9, 2009 (22 against Tampa).

Speaking of Ovechkin and Karlsson, here are the top-10 individual Corsi-For (iCF) games of the past eight seasons, per war-on-ice:
