The Noon Number: Rushing Game

A look at how the team likes to generate offense.

NHL: Los Angeles Kings at Washington Capitals Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

79 - The number of attempts on the rush the Capitals have had at 5v5 so far during the 2019-2020 campaign, according to Natural Stat Trick. That’s good enough for second in the League, behind Chicago’s 89. It should come as no surprise that Alex Ovechkin and Jakub Vrana are driving the effort. Ovechkin’s 13 rush attempts are good for third in League, behind Brady Tkachuk’s 19 and Ondrej Palat’s 16, and Vrana’s 12 put him in a four-way tie for fourth.
