Jay Beagle has had an, uh, ruff go of it lately, but the former Capital found the back of the net in the Canucks’ 4-3 shootout loss to the Minnesota Wild on Wednesday.
The goal ended a 42-game goal drought for Beags.
Beagle scored on a two-on-one break after Quinn Hughes found him with a beautiful pass crashing the crease.
The goal tied the game 1-1 on the first shift of the second period.

The goal was only Beagle’s second of the 2019-20 season. It also came on the same night the Canucks held a Top Dog Race during the second intermission. Coincidence? I think not.
Since leaving DC after winning a Stanley Cup in 2018, Beagle has scored only four goals in 107 games with the Canucks. In comparison, Beagle scored seven goals in 79 games during his final season in Washington.
Beagle’s 59.6 faceoff percentage this year, however, is the highest of his career.
