Ladies and gentlemen, we have our first beagle.jpg of the 2014-15 NHL playoffs. The Caps grinder scored after some fantastic forechecking by Troy Brouwer and Andre Burakovsky.
After Beagle takes a beautiful backhanded pass from the Burracuda, he fires a shot from the slot. Lundqvist stops it, but the rabid Beagle stays dogged on the puck and fetches his own rebound. Then he shoots from behind the net and like magic– it goes in!
Like how in the world does this work? It looks like it went THROUGH the net!
That was Beagle’s first postseason goal since May 6, 2013, and his third career postseason goal in 33 games.
Jay Beagle's last playoff goal was May 6, 2013 – vs Lundqvist.. #CapitalsTalk

It was also Andre Burakovsky’s first career playoff point.
Slick backhanded feed from Burakovsky to Beagle to set up the goal. First career playoff point for 65.
