Though it might seem as if the 2012-13 regular season started only a few days ago, it is rapidly coming to a conclusion. We've passed the three-quarter mark, and the last of this season's 720 games will be played on April 27.
A few teams have separated themselves from the pack, but most of the eight playoff berths in each conference are still up for grabs.
Here's a look at some of the season's key numbers as we blow past the season's three-quarter mark:
0 -- Post-regulation losses by the Pittsburgh Penguins, the only team that did not lose at least once in overtime or a shootout. The Penguins won all four games they played that went beyond 60 minutes, twice in OT and twice in a shootout.
1 -- Games played without a penalty being called, matching the total for all of last season. The Toronto Maple Leafs and New York Islanders played a penalty-free game on Feb. 27; the Leafs were also involved in 2011-12's only penalty-free contest (against the Edmonton Oilers).
3 -- Victories by the Anaheim Ducks against the Chicago Blackhawks in their three head-to-head meetings this season. The Ducks won 4-2 at home and 3-2 (in a shootout) and 2-1 in their two visits to United Center. Anaheim is the only team not to lose to Chicago this season.
4 -- Goals scored by Pittsburgh's Chris Kunitz in the Penguins' 6-3 victory against the Washington Capitals on Feb. 3, the only four-goal game by any player this season. Kunitz and Nazem Kadri of the Toronto Maple Leafs were the only players with more than one hat trick through the first three-quarters of the season.
6 -- Shootout losses on the road by the New Jersey Devils, who have the most victories in the tiebreaker since it was adopted in 2005. New Jersey is 2-1 at home but 0-6 away from Prudential Center.
6 -- Games lost by the Boston Bruins in which they led after two periods -- including a League-high four such losses in regulation. Last season, the Bruins were a perfect 32-0-0 when they were ahead after 40 minutes.
7 -- Times in their first 39 games that the Chicago Blackhawks trailed after 40 minutes, the fewest in the NHL. The Blackhawks went 3-3-1 in those games.
8 -- Consecutive victories at the start of the season for Viktor Fasth, Anaheim's first-year goaltender. The 30-year-old Swede became only the third goalie in NHL history to win the first eight decisions of his career.
13 -- Games involving the Nashville Predators that ended in a shutout, the most of any team. The Predators have posted five shutouts (all by Pekka Rinne), but have been blanked a League-leading eight times.
13 -- Most combined goals by two teams in one game. The Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Montreal Canadiens 7-6 in overtime on March 2 at Bell Centre; no other game has had more than 11 goals scored.
14 -- Power-play goals by Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals, the most in the NHL. Ovechkin was the only player to reach double figures by the three-quarter mark of the season.
15 -- Victories by the Penguins in their 15 games in March. After losing its last game in February, Pittsburgh went 15-0-0, making the Penguins the first team not to lose a game in a month while playing more than 10 games. Pittsburgh then lost its first two games in April.
16 -- Road victories by the Chicago Blackhawks, the most of any team. The Blackhawks are 16-2-2 in their 20 games away from United Center, outscoring their opponents 70-38.
24 -- Consecutive games from the start of the season in which the Chicago Blackhawks earned at least one point, the most from the opening of a season in NHL history. The Colorado Avalanche finally ended the streak with a 6-2 victory in Denver on March 8.
