4 - Number of times the Capitals and Stars have gone to overtime in their six meetings over the last three seasons, with the Caps victorious in the first two and the Stars taking the last two (both last season). Eight of their last ten meetings have been one-goal affairs, both in regulation and overtime.

As noted yesterday, the Caps have struggled against the Stars over the years and really the entire franchise dating back to their time as the Minnesota North Stars - but have actually split their last six meetings, and earned their first regulation win over Dallas in 12 years when they downed them 4-3 last March.
