The Noon Number: Ice Cold at Fives

121:06 - Total time the Caps have played at five-on-five since their last five-on-five goal from someone other than Alex Ovechkin (who has one during that stretch). That span covers 138:51 of total game time and dates back to Mike Green's second-period tally against Buffalo three games ago.
