For years now, across the NHL, the playoff beard has been a movement. While there is no question that Ryan Ellis has the best beard on the Nashville Predators, the tradition is still fun for others. Ellis just happens to keep his beard the rest of the year too, giving him a slight advantage.
Guys like Mike Fisher, James Neal, and Roman Josi grew out their own playoff beard last season, joining the movement.
Players aren’t the only ones who grow out their facial hair though, as fans love the playoff tradition as well.
Great beards have been a part of Predators playoff tradition for years, so there is no reason that it should change anytime soon. Put the razors away until the summer, Predators fans.
Nashville has 10 more games until the beards, catfish, celebrity anthems, and parties on Broadway are back. The Predators will most likely face either the Los Angeles Kings, Anaheim Ducks, or Dallas Stars, as all three are within 2 points of each other, jockeying for 7th, 8th, and 9th place.
Get ready, Preds fans. The run for the Cup starts in less than a month.R
