Counting down the days until the 2015-16 season with a look at shots given up in the extra frame

Bob Stanton-USA TODAY Sports

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

...the number of shots given up by the Caps in overtime last season. They went to overtime a total of 21 times in 2014-15, outshooting their opponents 47 to 44 in those games (12 of which blissfully did not require a shootout).

While they held the edge in shots, the Caps finished the season 5-7 in those 12 games, and were 10-11 overall in games requiring extra time.
