Jay Beagle didn’t practice again this morning and, according to’s Chuck Gormley, the chances of the Capitals’ effective checking forward playing tomorrow in New York are “darkening.”

It’s believed Beagle suffered a leg injury when he blocked a shot in Game 5. He didn’t play Game 6, despite reporters being told earlier in the day that he was “fine” by coach Dale Hunter.

It’s not clear whether Beagle will be able to participate in tomorrow’s winner-take-all affair against the Rangers. At this point, the Capitals might not even know.

    Caps will miss Beagle, no question. But it ain’t bad having a quality guy like Jeff Halpern to step in.

      yea, those penalty minutes halpern takes are hard to miss in the playoffs.
