The Noon Countdown: Brouwer Power

Counting down the days until the 2014-15 season with a look back at a big year for a secondary scorer 43 - Number of days remaining until the Caps open the 2014-15 season. But it's also... ... Troy Brouwer's career-high point total, set in 2013-14. Brouwer also set career marks in goals (25), power-play goals (12), shots on goal (161) and ice time (18:51 per night), and will be counted on to provide some secondary scoring going forward.

The Noon Countdown: Brouwer-Play Goals and More

Counting down the days until the 2014-15 season with a look at the power play's supporting cast 44 - Number of days remaining until the Caps open the 2014-15 season. But it's also... ...the number of power-play goals scored by Capitals other than Alex Ovechkin in 2013-14, led by Troy Brouwer's dozen and six apiece from Nicklas Backstrom, Marcus Johansson and Joel Ward. In other words, the Caps' power-play minus the League's biggest extra-man gun still posted as many goals as eight teams (including the Stanley Cup Champion Kings).
