Today was the day L.A. Kings star Jake Muzzin was SUPPOSED to kill his playoff beard ... but things changed at the last minute when he decided ... he didn't "feel right" letting it go.
Muzzin -- along with teammates Trevor Lewis and Drew Doughty -- were scheduled to have their beards shaved off completely during an event at Floyd's Barber Shop in L.A. on Wednesday.
But things didn't go as planned ... Drew bailed completely ... and Trevor and Jake decided to trim their face-warmers down instead of shaving them off completely.
And why? According to Jake ... "I woke up this morning and it didn't feel right getting rid of it."
Emotionally attached? "Maybe."
When you have a good thing going ... like a lucky playoff beard ... no sense in rushing to throw it away ... right??
