Tonight's 8-Bit Capitals Lines: Beagle in the Doghouse

Per Alex Prewitt, looks like that first period offensive-zone penalty (that turned into a power-play goal-against) has cost Jay Beagle a spot in the lineup for the fourth and final (regular season) meeting with the Penguins. Cameron Schilling also gets another look on defense, with Jason Chimera's punch to the mug of Zac Rinaldo earning him a jersey, as well... so with all of that in mind, here's a look at what the lines and defensive pairings should be against the Penguins, with Braden Holtby between the pipes Alex Ovechkin - Nicklas Backstrom - Andre Burakovsky Marcus Johansson -...

Jay Beagle, Productivity, and Realism

A quick look at Jay Beagle's surprising productivity, and the reality behind it. If back in October someone had told you that by mid-February Jay Beagle—  he of 13 goals and 14 assists in 192 career NHL games entering this season— would be such a lightning rod for discussion amidst a so-far successful campaigns that offers plenty of other compelling storylines, you'd likely have inquired as to the contents of that someone's pipe. But here we are, the playoff picture shaping up nicely, and coming off a 3-point game (2g, 1a) in which he led the Caps to their first ROW in San Jose since...

Beagle show: Capitals upend Sharks in overtime

A pair of goals from the wookie didn't hold up against a pair from the Beagle as the Sharks ended a three-game homestand without a win. The Sharks got a point out of their homestand, but that's all as San Jose fell to the Capitals 5-4 in overtime on Wednesday night. It was a close game, possession-wise, throughout but two goals from Brent Burns and a late equalizer from Joe Thornton weren't enough to survive the Jay Beagle show in San Jose. The trouble for San Jose started when the starting lines hit the ice — with the dreaded Burns and Scott Hannan making up the top defensive pairing to...
