The Noon Countdown: O from the D

Counting down the days until the 2015-16 season with a look at some offense from the defense

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

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

...the number of goals scored by Caps' defensemen in 2014-15, the same amount they scored the previous season, as well. That total was buoyed by John Carlson's 12 goals and Mike Green's 10, as well as a career year for Karl Alzner who checked in with five.

Interestingly enough, while the Caps' blueline was one of the most prolific in terms of overall offense, the goal total ranks near the bottom of the League last season, tied with Detroit and Tampa Bay for the sixth-lowest total among the 30 teams.
