Jay Beagle scored 19 seconds into overtime and capped a three-goal, come-from-behind surge as the Capitals beat the Stars 4-3 Saturday night.

The Stars were leading 3-1 at the end of the second when Alex Ovechkin and TJ Oshie scored in the third to tie the game. Both goals had assists from Matt Niskanen and Nicklas Backstrom. Niskanen also provided an assist on Beagle’s goal to give him three for the night. This was the second consecutive game in which Beagle scored a goal.

Two goals and three points now for the veteran forward over his last two games, which brings his season's sum to eight goals and 18 points this season over 43 games.

JAy Beagle has been the Capitals best player on the draw.

He is currently third in the NHL at 60.7 percent and has been particularly good in his own end where the defensive player is at a disadvantage as he has to put down his stick first. He is 60.6 percent efficient in his own zone and that is amazing considering the circumstances. Beagle has five goals and 11 points in 30 games with a plus-seven rating so if you count faceoffs in your pool, Beagle is a valuable asset.

Beagle broke the scoreless tie at the 14:49 mark of the third period. Dmitry Orlov picked up the only assist on the Beagle's marker. Beagle's been on a bit of a productive streak, as he's picked up four points in his last five contests. He has four goals and four assists in 17 games this season.

Jay Beagle skated on a line with Alex Ovechkin during Monday's practice.

Head coach Barry Trotz is looking to shake things up after the Caps dropped a 5-1 decision to the Hurricanes on Saturday night. "Jay was sort of pigeon-holed as a guy that could kill penalties, give you energy but wasn’t going to score, and I don’t see that," Trotz said. "He’s not a natural goal-scorer like Ovi or someone else, but he keeps working on the offensive game and he keeps producing. His production for minutes played is higher than three-quarters of our team. So, why not give that young man an opportunity because he’s worked at his game?" Beagle's long-term fantasy prospects aren't great, but in the short-term his stock definitely gets a boost while he's paired with Ovechkin.

Jay Beagle picked up two assists in a 3-1 win Sunday.

Beagle did it in his hometown of Calgary and there likely was plenty of family and friends in the crowd. He is not a big scorer as it was only his second and third assists of the season but it still was a nice game for the hometown boy.

Coach Barry Trotz thinks the Jay Beagle, Daniel Winnik and Tom Wilson line has been terrific this season.

The line scored both goals Saturday in a 2-1 win over as Winnik had both. "I don’t consider them our fourth line right now," Trotz said. "They’re probably one of our best lines. Tonight, they were fantastic." The Capitals need more scoring from their bottom-six forwards and this outburst does not hurt.

Jay Beagle hopes to be Washington's third-line center again next season.

"That's what I want to be. So that's up to the coaching staff and the coaches," he said. "Coming into this year that was my goal, was to make that third line stronger, and I felt like coaches gave me that opportunity, and when I had that opportunity I did my best with it. And playing with a guy like [Jason Chimera] and [Tom Wilson], it was awesome. It was a lot of fun. It was some of the funnest hockey I've played." GM Brian MacLellan wants a faster and more offensive third line in 2016-17, which could bump Beagle to the fourth combination.

When Jay Beagle returned from a hand injury on Feb. 28 he only had about 70% grip strength.

Beagle said it took a long time for him to get back to 100%, but he's at that point now. He's healthy going into the offseason, which should allow him to train without complications.

Jay Beagle scored a goal in Washington's 6-1 win against Philadelphia in Game 3 on Monday.
