.400 - The Capitals’ win percentage, since the start of the Barry Trotz era, when having at least three days off between games. Going back to the 2014-15 season, the Caps are 6-7-2 in games that followed these mini-breaks, which includes losses in their last four.

On the flip side, they’re slightly better when having no rest, with a record of 18-16-2 in the second half of back-to-back games. In fact (and perhaps not surprisingly), the sweet spot for the Caps seems to be an every-other-day schedule - they’re a dominant 72-17-10 over the last three seasons on that cadence.

The Caps will look to improve upon their well-rested record tomorrow night when they take on the Flyers after three days off.
