The Chicago Blackhawks clinched the playoffs yesterday, so this is officially the 2nd day of my playoff beard. The Blackhawks would play the St. Louis Blues if the playoffs began today.
At this point I plan to shave my beard when 1 of the following 2 events transpire
A) The Black Hawks win 16 2016 playoff games and win their 4th Stanley Cup in 7 years.
B) They lose 4 playoff games in the same playoff series.
So the end of my playoff beard posts will contain a countdown like this,
Beard goes in 16 Wins or 4 more losses to (team they are currently playing).
So if the Hawks do end up playing the Blues and end up taking the Blues to a game 7.
The countdown the day before the game would read
Beard goes in 13 more playoff wins or 1 more loss to the Blues.
If the Blackhawks beat the Blues in game 7 the countdown would read
Beard goes in 12 more playoff wins or 4 more losses to Next opponent
I am sure I over explained the crud out of that. But you probably get it.
