Patrick Eaves was minding his own business in the Anaheim Ducks’ upbeat dressing room when Sami Vatanen walked by and took a playful tug on his new teammate’s wild, luxuriant beard. Eaves has only been with the Ducks for four games, but he’s already finding many remarkable ways to help Anaheim’s playoff push – and his facial hair has been ready for the postseason all winter long. Eaves had two assists and scored the only goal of the shootout in the fifth round, and Jonathan Bernier capped a 24-save performance with a perfect shootout in the Ducks’ 4-3 victory over the Nashville Predators on Tuesday night.
