The Washington Capitals have been in the playoffs for just under two months now. Unlike every season save one in the last four decades, this has been sufficient time for our special boys to grow some mighty fearsome playoff beards.
But, the playoffs will last somewhere between one to three more games, so if we’re going to catalog and rank the Caps’ beards, we need to do it right now.
What follows is an authoritative and comprehensive accounting of the playoff beards of the 2017-18 Washington Capitals, sorted into tiers about which there can be no debate, so please no comments on this article. Thanks in advance.
