The New Look Ducks

from the OC Register,
The Mighty Ducks' confidence isn't the only thing that has been growing during their Stanley Cup playoff run. Following a longstanding NHL custom/superstition, many of the players are letting their beards grow. (OK, in some cases, whiskers and peach fuzz is a more accurate description.) It has become an unwritten rule to stop shaving during the NHL playoffs, a tradition that is believed to date to the New York Islanders' glory years in the early 1980s.
