The Noon Number: Locking Up the Vault

A look at this recent stretch of success at home

NHL: Vancouver Canucks at Washington Capitals Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

20 - The number of points earned, out of a possible 20, by the Capitals over their last 10 home games.

Dating back to December 1, the Caps have gone 10-0-0 at Capital One Arena, making them one of just four teams without a regulation loss over that span (joining Vegas, San Jose and Carolina) and the only team without a loss of any kind.

Since their DC winning streak began, the Caps have outscored opponents 41-21 (their 41 GF the most goals by any team since December 1), and gone 22-for-25 on the penalty kill (88%) and 8-for-28 with the extra man (28.6%).

Among individuals, Alex Ovechkin leads the team with 17 points at home (6-11-17) and trails only Nathan MacKinnon among all skaters since the start of December (with MacKinnon appearing in two more games). Meanwhile John Carlson has racked up three goals and 10 assists to lead all defensemen, Caps or otherwise, while the goalies have been doing their part - Braden Holtby and Philipp Grubauer have combined for a 2.07 GAA and a .933 save percentage at home over the last 10 games.
