The National Hockey League is fueled by passion and tradition, but no tradition is more fan-friendly than the superstitious belief in the world-renowned "playoff beard."

For those of you who are new to this epic and storied tradition, players will not shave their facial hair once the Stanley Cup playoffs begin until they are crowned champion (or are knocked out of the playoffs). 

Certain players, like superstar forward Sidney Crosby, live their entire lives around superstitions and rituals before the puck drops. 

Crosby, unlike the players on this list, cannot grow a thick, colorful, bushy, and overall truly great playoff beard.

Here are the best playoff beards in NHL history. Enjoy.
