The Noon Number: No-vertime

A look at some extra-time futility

7 - Number of times the Capitals have lost in overtime this year, tied for the most overtime losses in a single season in franchise history... with more than half a season remaining. The last time they lost as many as seven overtime games was 2018-19 (losses which occurred over a full 82-game season).

Only once since 1974-75 has the team gone a full season without an overtime win, and for that you have to go all the way back to 1994-95 - a lockout-shortened campaign in which they lost one of nine attempts and ended up with ties in the other eight.
