A look at a key Caps secondary scorer

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

.33 - Justin Williams' goals-per-game rate in 2015-16, his highest pace since the two 30-goal seasons in Carolina (31 in 2005-06 and 33 in 2006-07).

Couple that with his .37 assist-per-game rate and that gives the Capitals a pair of players averaging one-third of a goal and one-third of an assist or more per game in Williams and Nicklas Backstrom (17 goals, 36 assists in 51 games played). League-wide, that's a fairly exclusive club, with just 29 members.
