5 - Number of wins for the Capitals when they’ve scored three or more goals. In fact, all five of their wins have been earned when scoring at least three goals in a game, and they are 0-5-2 when scoring 2 or fewer. They are one of four teams - along with Montreal, Vegas, and the Rangers - who are undefeated when putting up three or more goals this year.

That said, so far in 2022-23 it’s not unusual to see a low offensive output result in a loss, regulation or otherwise. Of the 126 times a team has scored fewer than 3 goals this year, only 13 of them have resulted in a win for that team (although another 14 have ended in overtime or a shootout loss).
