Beagle Recalled From Hershey

Forward Jay Beagle has been recalled from Hershey, Coach Bruce Boudreau said moments ago. When asked why Beagle was recalled, Boudreau said, "I have my reasons".

It's unclear where Beagle is going to fit into the lineup, though it's possible he'll replace Michael Nylander. It's also possible another forward is hurt. I'll have a better idea after the Caps hit the ice for the morning skate in about an hour.

Brought over from last thread:

Can everyone tell I am trying not to think about our Caps? Hopefully they will come out the same way they did last game and then not run into the 7 penalty calls. Some bonehead at the national level had the nerve to say that 2 of the calls were delay of game so, basically, what are the Caps complaining about. What they are complaining about are the other 5 judgement calls that were called. And not necessarily just that they were called, but that they weren't called both ways.
Again fellow fans.

A penalty disparity of 7-2 doesn't only mean an advantage of 10 mins on the PP. Killing penalties addes fatigue to Varly, the D, and our top shut-down fowards of Laich, Steckel, and Bradley. We get the same amount of powerplays, and the darn penalties were there to be called, our shutdown guys, except for maybe Laich, get to rest their legs when we are on the PP. So don't let anyone fool you an unfair sway in penalties has a lot more to do with the game besides just when the PP/PK is going on.

Oh, additionally, it keeps Ovi off the ice!

Varly needs to see this video. This is what he should do to Malkin - or any other player - that messes with him. 38 seconds in...

From earlier:

As someone mentioned in another thread... the penalty disparity makes sense when you're spending a lot of time in your own end. It just snowballs when you start taking penalties, so the tide of a game can quickly turn when that happens. It doesn't necessarily mean that the refs/league are biased or that the penalties were called unfairly. While that indeed might be the case, we're not doing ourselves any favors either.

Momentum during a game is huge... and the calls will swing your way if you grab it!

Who has info on Beagle ... lets call him Snoopy

If it gets Nylander out of there I'll be happy with the switch. But expected Aucoin.

Beagle is a good choice -- has played very well for Hershey, good fourth line winger or center. Checks really well, has size and more importantly, speed. Good backchecker, too.

i've been harping on recalling beagle ever since Fehr went down. Its stupid of Bruce to even consider inserting Nylander. everytime he does it he burns up an important roster spot.

Hopefully Beagle plays well and adds something to that 4th line which Nyles predictably couldn't do.

Re the penalties, when you spend 45 mins in your own end expect to see a penalty disparity. We didn't lose because of the PPS. We lost because they dominated us at even strength.

The Caps aren't getting many scoring chances from Laich, Gordon or Clark. I would have thought Aucoin could have been the type of pesky skater and offensive presence that could have energized the attack a bit for Game 4 against the Penguins #3 and #4 lines.

Some of the missed calls would have created momentum swings because they were offensive zone penalties by the Pens that were not called, and kept the pressure on. Two obvious ones were:

1. Varly being run over in the crease. Blow the whistle, put us on the PP like they should have, the pressure in the zone is off, Brads and Steckel are resting on the bench, and Varly is a spectator for at least 1 1/2 mins and getting rest.

2. Loose puck next to our net, Brads goes for it (watched it again last night, thought it was Morrison, it was Brads) Orpik plows over him before Brads even gets the puck, Fedetenko gains control and two more shots are generated. Blow the whistle at that point to call interference, Brads, Stecks, and Varly again get rest.

The overall impact of calls that should have been made is that the Pens shutdown line centered by Staal, is out killing penalties. Their D is getting more fatigued and Fleury more fatigued. Now you have an even game. It's not that hard to figure out. WE CONTROLLED THE FIRST 14 MINUTES OF THE GAME. Then the penalties started.

The penalty disparity has been obvious since the start of game 1.

Good for him. Beags has been playing with great energy in the playoffs. GO PUPPY!

Posted by: ekays | May 8, 2009 11:02 AM | Report abuse

snakegriffin - awesome slapshot ref. Can't wait for Brash to get back, a fourth line of Brash Gordo Clarkie wouldn't be bad at all.

Seriously people still talking about penalty's...

hope Beagle plays tonight! (in place of Nyls, not because there is yet another injury)

Posted by: RedBirdie | May 8, 2009 11:09 AM | Report abuse

Beagle will be a great addition. I love the way this kid plays. He's gritty, tough and a great forechecker. He's not afraid to drop the mitts if needed. He may be the spark this team needs tonight.

I've been watching Slap Shot for inspiration a lot lately. Maybe BB needs to replace the game video with a copy of Slap Shot...

Posted by: snakegriffin | May 8, 2009 11:13 AM | Report abuse

Awesome! I have been calling for this from the start! He will add far more sandpaper than Nylander and that is what we need.

The Puck Hound is up? Nice! Hope he gets some ice time tonight.

Can never second guess the Bruce, but I was kinda hoping for Chris Bourque and his energy on the 4th line...

Valencia VS Real Madrid

Willhill 2.25 3.25 2.70
2.40 3.30 2.90 93.9%

For R.Madrid, PEPE is a big problem and lost the race with Barca. Valencia has been stopped winning and they really need a quick return in order to keep the hope.

Both teams will have something to prove in this match as they are desperate top make amends for the heavy defeats in the last round. We expect a very open match and over 2.5 goals looks like a logical choice.
