Sunday night after the Caps’ 3-1 victory over the Flames, hometown kid Jay Beagle made his way to the Scotiabank Saddledome concourse and greeted all 18 of his friends and family who came to see him play.
Beagle had much to celebrate. The fourth-line center had his biggest game and his biggest highlight of the young season, registering a beautiful primary assist on Brett Connoly’s first goal as a Capital.
Later, Beags also unselfishly assisted on Marcus Johansson’s empty-net goal, which iced the game. It was Beagle’s first two-point night since April 1 against the Colorado Avalanche and his third multi-point game over the last two seasons.
“If I had a little bit more time, I probably would have been selfish and try to put it in,” Beagle said with a smile to the media.
Afterwards, Beagle met with his kennel and posed for a picture for the Capitals’ Twitter account.
“Obviously, [Calgary] is where I train,” Beagle said. “It’s where I’m from. I love playing here. It’s always fun in front of friends and family so it’s a good feeling to get the win.”
