4 - Combined number of points for the Flyers’ top line of Claude Giroux, Jakub Voracek and Wayne Simmonds in last year’s first-round playoff series against the Caps. Voracek scored the only goal for the trio (one of just six scored by Philadelphia in the six-game series), while Simmonds picked up a pair of assists and Giroux added a helper of his own.

By comparison, that four-point total equaled the number of points amassed by T.J. Oshie in the series... his team’s fifth-highest scorer over the six games.
