Jay Beagle hasn't had the playoff performance he was hoping for after a great season as a member of the Capitals' vaunted fourth line.

But in Game 6 on Monday night, he was working hard to be the thorn in the side of Penguins star Sidney Crosby.

With the Capitals leading 2-0 in the second period, the Penguins had the puck in the Capitals' end, looking to finally get on the board.

But Beagle spent the final minute of the period dogging Crosby with pokes, prods and everything in between.

As you will note at the end of the video in the above player, Jay Beagle as having fun.

As the play came to an end, the Caps' forward had a huge smile on his face.

Mission accomplished.
