A look at a relatively fruitless playoff outing

16 - Number of days remaining until the start of the Capitals’ 2020-21 season. But it’s also...

...the number of Capitals who dressed for a playoff game in 2020 (including the round-robin series) and did not score a goal. Over the course of the entire postseason, just six of the 22 skaters on the team’s roster - Alex Ovechkin (4), Evgeny Kuznetsov (3), T.J. Oshie (3), Travis Boyd (1), Tom Wilson (1), and Richard Panik (1) - scored at least one goal.

Narrow the focus down to just the five-game outing against the Islanders and that number drops to three, with only Ovechkin, Kuznetsov and Oshie finding the back of the net against New York.
