The Noon Number: A Point is a Point

A look at how the Caps have managed to make lemons into lemonade

NHL: New York Rangers at Washington Capitals Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

6 - Number of games this season in which the Capitals have given up at least five goals and still come away with at least a point in the standings (2-11-4 overall). That’s the most in the League so far this year, edging out Florida (technically 2-12-4, but with one 5-4 SO loss).

That’s also the most by any Caps team since all the way back in the 1985-86 season, when they went 4-13-0-2 in games with at least five goals against, and one shy of the franchise record (4-29-0-3 in 1978-79).
