Kings shave, go to the beach


The keeper of the Stanley Cup, Philip Pritchard of the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto, tweeted this photo of the Kings and their families on the beach Saturday. Presumably in South Bay, since all but one of the players and coach Darryl Sutter live during the season in Manhattan Beach or Hermosa Beach. (Willie Mitchell and his wife opted for Venice.)

Not a lot of beards in the group a day after the big win.
