24 - Points for Evgeny Kuznetsov so far in the playoffs (11 goals, 13 assists), a single-season franchise record. He currently sits two points ahead of Alex Ovechkin’s output from this same postseason run, and three points ahead of the previous record (Ovechkin’s 2009 campaign). Kuznetsov and Ovechkin, in those three seasons, are the only Caps to reach double digits in both goals and assists in a single postseason.

Oh, and big hat tip to John Walton on the title.
