By The Numbers: Capitals 4, Panthers 2
Panthers By The Numbers takes a closer look at some of the
interesting stats that you may or may have not known about.

  Capitals 4, Panthers 2

2 – For the second game in the row the Panthers found themselves trailing 1-0 after one period of play despite outshooting their opponents. After outshooting New York 15-11 on Friday, the Panthers outshot the Capitals 11-8 on Sunday, but Russian superstar Alex Ovechkin gave the Caps a 1-0 lead thanks to the power play with a low shot from the point that beat Vokoun’s right pad.

30 – It only took 30 seconds of second period play for the Capitals to up their lead to 2-0 as Eric Fehr scored his ninth of the season just putting the puck past Vokoun’s right pad from the slot. Interestingly enough, six of his goals have come in the last seven games and he run his goal streak to four games.

3 – Catch, cradle and release. That’s all Michael Frolik had to do to register his 14th of the season. Frolik took the pass from Stephen Weiss from the corner and fired the puck past Jose Theodore with 12:08 gone in the second for a goal in his third straight game.

4 – Getting pressure on their sixth power play attempt of the night, the Panthers finally found the back of the net as Nathan Horton rebounded the puck past Theodore 1:29 into the third for his fourth tally on the power play. It was Horton’s 16th of the season and third in the last four games.

22 – Speaking of the power play, the Cats ended a long drought as they had not scored on their last 22 opportunities, spanning five-plus games. The last time Florida had scored with the man advantage was Cory Stillman’s power play goal on February 3rd against the Maple Leafs with 53 seconds remaining in the game. Before scoring tonight, Florida had went 40:17 of play without scoring. The Panthers ended the game 1 of 8 on the man advantage.

9 – Picking up the first assist on both of the Panthers goals, Weiss recorded his eighth multi-point game of the season. The center who leads the team with 30 assists, a new single-season high, has eight 2-point games and one three-point game. The nine multi-point games leads the team.

0 – Saturday night Mike Green set a new NHL goal scoring record for a defenseman for scoring in his eighth straight game as he scored in the third period against the Lightning. That streak ended against the Panthers as he failed to score on four shots on net. His eight game point steak also came to an end as he didn’t factor on the scoreboard. Green had entered the game with 10 goals and seven assists during the streak.

5 – The Panthers will have to try again to set a new franchise record for consecutive wins at home. The loss snapped a five game winning streak at the BankAtlantic Center, a streak which had tied the record set from November 5th – 15th in 1995 and then matched March 6th – March 16th 2008. This year’s streak started with a 3-2 victory over Philadelphia on January 27th and ended with the 2-1 victory over the Rangers on Friday.

39, 40, 41 – He’s not deemed one of the best players if not the best player in the league for nothing. Ovechkin scored his 39th, 40th and 41st goals of the season for his third hat trick of the year. The front runner for the Maurice “Rocket” Richard scored the Caps first goal on the power play, then the game winner with 2:30 remaining in the contest and then added the empty netter to salt away the victory. It took Ovechkin three games to find a way to beat the Cats.

38 – Karlis Skrastins blocked a game high five shots Sunday night, accounting for 38% of Florida’s total (13 total). Keith Ballard was the closest Panther with three. Washington’s Shaone Morrisonn and Green led the Capitals with three blocks each.
