7 - Number of days remaining until the start of the Capitals’ 2020 postseason run. But it’s also...

...the number of players on the Caps’ playoff roster who put up at least five points against their round-robin opponents in the 2019-20 season.

The Caps faced the Bruins and Lightning three times each this season, with four games against the Flyers, and T.J. Oshie led the way with a combined 10 points against that trio. Right behind him are Jakub Vrana and Evgeny Kuznetsov with 8 points each, followed by Tom Wilson and Nicklas Backstrom (6), and Dmitry Orlov and John Carlson (5).
