8 - Number of Capitals players who earned at least two points in last night’s 7-2 victory over the Senators, with six different goal-scorers and 12 different players registering at least a point.

The Caps haven’t had more than seven multipoint performances in a single game since November 7, 1998, when eight players chipped in en route to an 8-5 victory over... the Ottawa Senators. Dating back to the 1987-88 season, the team has gotten at least two points in a game from eight or more players nine times prior to last night (and three of their ten overall have come against Ottawa):
