12 - Number of times this season that the Capitals have scored within two minutes of a goal by their opponent*. including answering each of the Devils’ three goals within that timeframe in last night’s win.

That number almost doubles when looking at Caps’ goals scored within five minutes of their opponent, jumping up to 20 - and of those 20 goals, 14 of them (including all three scored last night) represented either the tying or go-ahead goal for the Caps.

*Only includes goals scored within the same period/regulation; all data collected here
