As NHL Players Pursue Lord Stanley's Cup, Shaving Is A Jinx

ARI SHAPIRO, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Ari Shapiro with sports. Things get kind of hairy in the hockey playoffs. As players pursue the Stanley Cup, shaving is a jinx. Even die-hard fans grow beards for luck.

Ratings for Monday's playoff game were up 35 percent from last year. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
