33:36 - The total amount of time the Caps have spent trailing so far this season, with seven games in the books. That’s the third-lowest amount of time of any team in the league, behind only Carolina (25:29 through six games) and Florida (21:23 through seven).

So far this season, the Caps have only given up the first goal of the game twice (against Calgary and Ottawa), and have only trailed going into the locker room once (Calgary again). In all four of their wins, they’ve held a lead after both the first and second periods.
