22 - Number of playoff losses for the Capitals in franchise history when leading after two periods, including last night’s game - which coincidentally was also the first time in the series in which either team went into the locker room with a lead. Those 22 losses are tied with the Avalanche for the most in the League going back to the Caps’ first postseason in 1983.
