0 - Number of power-play goals the Capitals surrendered in the first round in 14 times shorthanded. In fact, the Caps have killed the last 25 power-plays they've faced in the playoffs, a span that covers ten games (and three seasons and two head coaches).

The Isles' 0-fer represented the first time the Caps had a perfect PK over the course of a series, beating their previous low of one power-play goal-against (done three times, most recently against the Rangers in 2011's five-game series).
