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

...the number of points earned by the Caps against the rest of the Metropolitan Division last season, finishing the season with a record of 24-16-4. That was the second-highest point total among the eight teams, trailing only the Rangers (63); the Islanders finished with 51, followed by the Blue Jackets (34), Hurricanes (31), Devils (27) and Flyers (26), with the Penguins bringing up the rear at 22 intra-division points.
