The Noon Number: Playoff MoJo

A look at Marcus Johansson's point production in the playoffs

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

2 - Number of points earned by Marcus Johansson in each of the first two games of the Caps' first-round series against the Flyers. That doubles his career total in multi-point playoff games, and marks the first time he's had more than one multi-point game in a single postseason.

His four multi-point games are tied with Mike Green for fifth-most among all Caps since 2005-06 and trail only Alex Ovechkin (18) and Nicklas Backstrom (11) among current Caps over that span. Per Elias, he's the first Cap to have back-to-back multi-assist games in the playoffs since Jaromir Jagr did it back in 2003, and just the third in franchise history to open a series with at least two assists in each of the series' first two games, joining Calle Johansson (who did it in 1993) and Joe Juneau (1996).
