Mourning the Death of a Playoff Beard

by Anne

St. Louis Blues goalkeeper Chris Mason was rocking a MONSTROUS playoff beard in Round 1 against the Canucks. Clearly Christopher had been cultivating this beast the entire time his team was pushing for the post season. Words cannot adequately describe, so I will let this Google Image photograph of a TV screen speak for itself:

Completing the look is his cueball head.

On Thursday, Chris Mason backstopped Team Canada to a 5-1 victory over the Czech Republic and was named Team Canada's player of the game and we got to see a shorn sheep:

A mere pittance of stubble
A dark day for playoff beards everywhere.

Team USA plays France today at 2:15 EST.

The two series I care the least about (Anaheim/Detroit and Boston/Butter Snaps) play tonight but I'll be working anyway. Textual updates will not be necessary.
