What helped New Jersey avoid a four-game Stanley Cup finals sweep against the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday night?
Check the tape (above).
You see, Ryan Carter -- 28-year-old center for the Devils -- openly acknowledges his inability to grow a playoff beard. So he's gone full 'stache, something a once-goateed Adam Henrique decided to mimic for Game 4.
And for those who don't know, Henrique scored the game-winning goal with less than five minutes left.
The power of the mustache, indeed.
