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

...the number of wins earned by the 2018-19 Capitals when leading after the first period, third-most in the League behind only Columbus (29) and Tampa Bay (31). The Caps actually led the NHL in first-period leads overall with 37... but losses in ten of those games knocked their win percentage down to a lowly .730, with only 11 teams having a worse mark when leading after the opening frame.
