A look at a season-high streak of the less than ideal kind

Russell LaBounty-USA TODAY Sports

5 - Number of consecutive games in which the Caps have failed to record a single power-play goal, their longest such streak of the season. The Caps have had 17 opportunities over those five games, including eight in their loss to Florida, but are 3-1-1 over that stretch.

The last time the Caps were held without a power-play goal in five consecutive games was January 10-17, 2014, when they went 0-for-13 (part of a longer slump in which they scored just once with the extra man over an eight-game run). They won just one of those five games, scoring a measly seven goals and going 1-2-2 overall.
