11 - Number of shots on goal to which the Caps held the Islanders in Game Seven (with just three coming from forwards), the second-lowest total in franchise playoff history - on April 9, 1990, Washington held New Jersey to just ten shots on goal in a 2-1 Game Three loss.
Since the start of the 1987-88 season, only six teams have been held to 11 shots on goal or fewer in a playoff game, with the Caps appearing in half of those games - the two mentioned above and a 2-0 win over Ottawa in 1998 in which they were outshot 36-11.
Last night represented the fewest shots on goal allowed by Barry Trotz's Caps, and only the fourth time overall that they've allowed fewer than a dozen shots-on since that Devils game.
More on last night's shot suppression from our pal Vogs:
Isles had six shots on net in last 29 minutes of game. Five of them from Boychuk. Only one that wasn't, from Nielsen, went in. #Caps— Mike Vogel (@VogsCaps) April 28, 2015
Nielsen's two shots on net (2:26 of 2nd and 3:13 of third) were the only two from any Isles forward over the last 57:18 of the game. #Caps— Mike Vogel (@VogsCaps) April 28, 2015
Average distance of Islanders' 11 shots on net in Game 7 was 55 feet. #Caps— Mike Vogel (@VogsCaps) April 28, 2015
