A look at how the Caps and Leafs stack up on both sides of the puck

NHL: Washington Capitals at Toronto Maple Leafs John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

511 - Combined number of goals scored by the Capitals (261) and the Maple Leafs (250) during the regular season, good for third- and fifth-highest in the League, respectively. Both teams were able to spread the offense around throughout the lineup, with the Caps checking in with 11 players in double-digits while the Leafs had nine.

On the flip side, however, the Caps gave up just 177 goals on the season (giving the team its first Jennings Trophy win since Al Jensen and Pat Riggin brought one to DC in 1983-84) - that’s 57 fewer goals than Toronto’s 234, which ranked 22nd in the League for 2016-17.
