The Noon Number: An Eventful Event

NHL: Colorado Avalanche at Washington Capitals Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

151 - Combined number of shot attempts (all situations) in last night’s Capitals-Avalanche game, with the Caps holding the slight edge at 76-75. That’s the most in any Caps game this season, and the seventh-highest between any two teams in 2018-19 (per Natural Stat Trick).

It’s also the highest shot-attempt total in a Caps game since 11/23/2013 against the Leafs, a game in which the Caps held the 101-54 advantage in attempts... and yet still lost 2-1.
