VIDEO: Jay Beagle Scores Alex Ovechkin-esque Goal (Which Has Been Hard To Come By)

In Tuesday's 3-0 victory over the Montreal Canadiens, recent call-up Jay Beagle made his presence felt by netting an unbelievable goal to open the scoring.

Beagle came from behind the net and fired a no-look backhanded shot over the right shoulder of Canadiens goaltender Carey Price. Beagle looked as surprised as everyone else on the ice and inside Verizon Center when the siren blared signaling a goal.

Some would call Beagle's tally a "shinny" goal (but Craig Laughlin should refrain lest he be accused of swearing on television again). Either way, Beagle's goal was No. 9 on Sportscenter's Top 10 Plays Wednesday and he is making a strong case to stay with the Caps. Beagle has two goals since being called up from AHL Hershey December 15.

Perhaps Alex Ovechkin should take some notes.
