Funny Odd Moment: An NHL Player Got a Stick Stuck in His Helmet
This is something you don't see every day in a hockey game.
In last night's NHL playoff game, Washington Capitals center Jay Beagle got a stick lodged right in his helmet.
As Beagle skated off the ice late in the second period, the strange occurrence made for a pretty amazing photo.

The stick of Pittsburgh's Kris Letang got stuck between Beagle's visor and helmet after a collision along the boards.
Beagle tried to remove the stick himself and stay on the ice, but eventually needed help at the bench.
Oddly enough, Beagle later got a Pittsburgh player's stick caught in his skate, which led to a tripping penalty.
Jay Beagle has had a stick in the helmet tonight and now a stick in the skate. He's like a walking voodoo doll
