How The Hell Did Jay Beagle Make That Game-Saving Block?

The Pittsburgh Penguins dispatched the Washington Capitals 4-3 in overtime tonight in Pittsburgh, weathering a furious third-period comeback and eventually winning on a Nick Bonino tap-in. However, it could have ended earlier in overtime, had Jay Beagle not morphed into Superman and dove across the mouth of goal just in time to block a would-be goal. It was an impressive block in real time, but it looks even better the more you slow it down.

Let’s get another angle going.


Beagle did a really good job of not kicking this in with his left foot after he blocked it, which the crossbar camera captures well.
