Things are heating up on the ice, as the NHL’s best are in playoff mode. Yes, hockey fans, the Stanley Cup playoffs have arrived, and Foursquare has a brand new badge to celebrate.

It’s simple – all you have to do is follow the NHL on Foursquare and check-in at certain times, with certain shoutouts to get the badge:

Follow NHL on foursquare to get insider tips about your favorite teams, players, and arenas. And, even though you may never get to touch the The Cup, you can unlock the Stanley Cup badge by checking in to any playoff game, or by checking in anywhere during one of the games and mentioning your favorite playoff team (make sure to follow NHL on foursquare first!). Don’t forget to share photos when you check in!

The NHL is also promoting more Foursquare specials, including buy one get one free hat deals at the NHL store in NYC.
