A look at how the Caps have fared in close contests

.75 - The Caps’ win percentage in one-goal games this season, tops in the NHL. 16 of their 34 games have been decided by one goal, with a record of 12-0-4 overall - tied with Vegas for the most one-goal wins in the league, and the only one of the 31 teams that has not yet lost in regulation by a single goal.

Of course, we all know that many of those one-goal wins started out as much larger leads (including yesterday’s win)... but at the end of the day, points are points, and the Caps have done what they’ve needed to do to get them.
