85.7 - The Capitals’ penalty-kill rate since February 26, compared to a rate of 78.5% from the start of the season up to this year’s trade deadline.

Dating back to the team’s acquisition of Carl Hagelin and Nick Jensen, the Caps have given up just three power-play goals on 21 shorthanded attempts, and killed off 18 consecutive power plays before giving up a pair in last night’s loss to Pittsburgh. That falls just short of their season-high of 20 consecutive kills between the second period against Montreal on 11/19 and the third period vs. Anaheim on 12/2.
