The Stanley Cup is the trophy awarded to the team that wins the championship in the National Hockey League. The Cup was donated in 1892 by Lord Stanley of Preston, at the time the Governor General of Canada, as the award for Canada's top amateur hockey team. Teams that were awarded the cup would be challenged by teams from other amateur leagues to a game or series of games. Over time, the Cup became the trophy that professional hockey leagues would play for. In 1926, the Cup became the official championship trophy of the National Hockey League.The Stanley (with an E) Cup is the trophy awarded to the winner of the NHL playoffs.Trophy for the NHL (National Hockey League)

A playoff beard is the superstitious practice of a National Hockey League player not shaving his beard during the Stanley Cup playoffs. The player stops shaving when his team enters the playoffs and does not shave until his team is eliminated or wins the Stanley Cup. It is believed that the tradition was started in the 1980s by the New York Islanders. The tradition is also practiced by nearly all North American hockey leagues, to include high school leagues and the NCAA hockey teams, as well as minor league affiliates. The tradition has also spread to hockey leagues in Europe. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Playoff_beard
