The Noon Number: Nick Trick

A look at #19’s multiple multi-point contributions 34 - Number of games in which Nicklas Backstrom has picked up at least three assists since entering the League in the 2007-08 season, including his three-assist performance last night against Minnesota. That leads the League, edging out Sidney Crosby (31) for the top spot; no one else has more than 30 games with three or more assists over that span.

The Noon Number: Four Score and Likely More

(And because you’re curious, the 1992-93 Caps had a franchise-best nine 20-goal scorers.) Three other teams - Chicago, San Jose and Winnipeg - also have a quartet of 20-goal scorers this season.
