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

...the number of power-play goals scored last season by players on the current roster not named Alex Ovechkin. Outside of Ovechkin’s team-leading 18 goals, the Caps got power-play markers in 2018-19 from Evgeny Kuznetsov (8), Nicklas Backstrom (7), T.J. Oshie (6), Tom Wilson (3), John Carlson (3), and Jakub Vrana (1).

Now-former Caps Matt Niskanen, Andre Burakovsky and Brett Connolly also chipped in with one PPG apiece.
