Before the calendar flips to a new year - and a new decade - here’s one last look back at the past year* in numbers:

112 - Points earned by the Capitals, third-most in the League, with an overall record of 51-23-10 in 84 games

46 - Goals scored by Alex Ovechkin in 2019; only Edmonton’s Leon Draisaitl has more over that span (51)

3.32 - Goals per game for the Caps over the last year

23 - Number of players who dressed for at least one game for the Caps this year

82 - Points for John Carlson in 2019, 13 more than any other blueliner

337 - Penalties taken by the Capitals, second only to the Rangers (365), with 299 minors (also second to the Rangers)

26 - Even-strength goals for Jakub Vrana, which puts him in the League’s top 20 and is just one behind Ovechkin for the team lead

17 - Number of players to score at least a point for the Caps in 2019

82.9 - The Caps’ penalty-kill percentage over the past year

161 - Number of penalty minutes for Tom Wilson, tied with San Jose’s Evander Kane for the highest total in the NHL

1,782 - Number of shots faced by Braden Holtby

5.1 - Carl Hagelin’s shooting percentage this year, the lowest of any Cap on the current roster

28 - Number of road wins earned by the Caps, tied with Carolina and St. Louis for the most in the League (in one less game played)

.920 - Ilya Samsonov’s save percentage in games he starts, with an overall save percentage of .918

6 - Number of players on the current roster averaging at least .50 points per game over the last 12 months
