The Noon Number: Four Score and Likely More

A look at the Capitals’ twenty-goal guys

NHL: Washington Capitals at Toronto Maple Leafs Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

4 - Number of Capitals with 20 or more goals so far this season - Alex Ovechkin (27), T.J. Oshie (25), Nicklas Backstrom (21) and Marcus Johansson (21) - with Justin Williams (19) poised to join the club soon and Evgeny Kuznetsov (15) a decent bet to make it a half-dozen, which would tie last year’s team in that regard. (And because you’re curious, the 1992-93 Caps had a franchise-best nine 20-goal scorers.)

Three other teams - Chicago, San Jose and Winnipeg - also have a quartet of 20-goal scorers this season.
