Jay Beagle absent from Capitals’ practice

Jay Beagle is the only player missing from Capitals practice Friday morning at KCI and his status remains in question for Game 7 Saturday against the Rangers.

Beagle missed Game 6 with an apparent right leg injury after blocking a shot by New York defenseman Anton Stralman in Game 5. The shut-down centerman finished Game 5 on May 7, but hasn’t skated since. He is listed as day-to-day by the team.

In Beagle’s absence, the Capitals’ lineup for the on-ice session looks the same as it did in Game 6.
