The Noon Number: Top Gunshy

A look at a quiet night for the Caps’ big guns

NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-Toronto Maple Leafs at Washington Capitals Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

0 - Number of scoring chances credited to the Caps’ top trio of Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom and T.J. Oshie in Game 4 (per Corsica). That marked the first time the line failed to register a single iSCF since Game 6 against Toronto.

They also combined for just four shot attempts at five-on-five in the last game (two apiece for Ovechkin and Oshie) - that’s the fewest as a group since March 9.

In other words... be better, top guys.
