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

...the number of games played by the Caps in the playoffs this spring, the fewest they’ve played since they missed the postseason altogether back in 2013-14. Prior to getting ousted by the Hurricanes in the first round back in April, the Caps had advanced to the second round three times (2015, 2016, and 2017) before going all the way to the Cup in 2018.

They are tied with the Penguins for the most playoff games played since 2015 with 70, posting a record of 39-21-10 over that span.
