Counting down the days until the 2015-16 season with a look at last season's power play prowess

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

60 - Number of days remaining until the Caps open the 2015-16 season. But it's also...

...the number of goals scored by the Capitals' power play last year, second-most in the League behind Detroit (70). That worked out to a League-leading 25.3% success rate - something which is doubly impressive, considering that the Caps only racked up 237 opportunities with the extra man, the eighth-lowest number of power-play chances of any team.
