12 - Number of days remaining until the start of the Capitals’ 2019-20 season. But it’s also...

...the number of times the Caps lost last season, in regulation or overtime/shootout, when they outshot their opponent, the third-fewest in the League behind only Tampa (10) and Winnipeg (11). The Caps had the shots-on-goal edge in less than half of their games - accomplishing the feat just 33 times overall - but their record was pretty strong in those 33 games, going 21-8-4 compared to 24-17-4 when their opponent had the upper hand in shots.
