In case you missed it, I had the privilege of joining Jeff Marek (@JeffMarek) and Greg Wyshynski (@wyshynski) on their podcast Thursday afternoon.
Go to the 51min mark to hear us chat about hockey, Adam Henrique’s creeper moustache, DPenner’s amazing beard, and boobs.
Hopefully this turns in a regular thing for WUYS. We love sharing our particular brand of whimsy with the hockey world.
Unfortunately, Pants couldn’t join us this time, but next time…gurrrrrl it is on.
If you go seven months without seeing an acquaintance, you might greet them with, “Wow, you look so….” The word the Devils and Kings need here is hairy. These teams last met in October and it’s a wonder if they’d recognize each other now without the numbers on their backs.
Each team has been presented with one trophy this year. Both captains opted not to touch their Conference chalices, but only one will lift the Cup in 2012.
Will a playoff beard be the first to kiss Lord Stanley’s prize, or find itself waiting to see whom the captain hands the Cup to next?

Captain Brown vs. Captain Parise.
The stage is nearly set for the ultimate NHL showdown. The Devils and Rangers battle it out at center stage while the Kings wait in the offing for their opponent to be named. It’s a long, hard fight to be among the last teams standing. Every one inch is earned.
This week, we salute the beards of some Unsung Unshaven Heroes. Marquee name or rookie sensation, it doesn’t matter what their contracts say now.
They fight on – and the proof of is all over their faces.
511-plus minutes worth of bruises, stitches and scrapes
The letter “A” is awarded only to the best. Students with the highest scores. Products with the best quality. Restaurants with the cleanest kitchens. We all know Alvin didn’t lead The Chimpmunks just because he had the best dance moves. The very presence of an “A” denotes greatness.
We love (OK, worship) our NHL team captains. But in life, it’s rare that a “C” should outrank an “A.”
To keep the status quo, this week we salute one NHL alternate captain from each remaining playoff team. These men are first in our books — leading by example on and off the ice, above and below the chinstrap.
Here are our top marks for how “A” beard should look.

Matt Greene’s bears. So blond, it glows.
In case you missed it yesterday, check out our post from Puck Daddy!
In this year’s Stanley Cup Playoffs, the fates select which beards will have a chance to realize their true potential.
Five teams remain. Five beards (OK, six) have emerged as top contenders for Beard of the Year.
None of these teams made it past the second round last season, so the promise of greater bearded glory shines bright. Some faces are familiar, some are new. All are hairy.

Back when we listed the most common playoff beard types, you may recall we included the “Maybe Don’t” category. This is the circular file where well-intentioned and enthusiastic efforts are stored until perfect attendance awards are handed out. ‘A’ for effort and all that. Since then we have admired the burgeoning beauty of many beards.
Now that the playoffs are three weeks old, it’s time to show cards on a few manscapes that are struggling to make the cut.
