The Noon Number: How Do You Like Them Apples?

A look at how #92 has lent a helping hand this season

NHL: Washington Capitals at Pittsburgh Penguins Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

8 - Number of consecutive games with an assist for Evgeny Kuznetsov, one shy of tying a franchise record set in 1985-86 by Bengt Gustafsson (and equaled one year later by Dave Christian). Kuznetsov has racked up ten points over that span (1-9-10) and has assists in all but 7 of the 26 games in which he’s appeared.

He’s currently averaging 2.43 assists per 60 minutes at five on five, which is seventh in the League, and ranks among the top 30 overall in total assists despite missing six games due to injury.
