I know some don’t believe in this crap, but others do, so what little things have you guys done during these playoffs to help the Devils succeed?

I’ve had a few along the way so far, most recent is watching game 4 vs Rags at my brothers for a change, they ended up winning so I kept a good thing going and the next thing you know the Devils are 3-0 when I watch the game out there.. its a 45 minute drive but you gotta stick with it.

Too many to name....I don't know if you know or not but this board actually takes down all the Silver shiny thingy's prior to the playoffs' start.

My supersitions have been lucky so far every game they won when I did my them. For the flyers series I grilled before every game and wore my Elias jersey. The Rangers series I made chicken bites and sweet potato fries and wore my Pandolfo jersey. Every series I always shower between the 1 and 2 period and had my beer jersey on my beer. My girlfriend has also played along.
Not sure what am going to do for the finals. Probably go back to grilling.

My superstition is not to be superstitious. I use to have a few when I was younger but thankfully I stopped doing that crap. I hate to break it you guys but none of us are important enough to have any impact on the outcome on the game by doing some of this stuff :P

I had to go to a job interview with my heinous playoff beard. a part of my superstition is i shave my mustache.

hell yeah I still got the job.

but i'm 98% sure my girlfriend left me....... I'm not too sure though, I've been too busy watching the Henrique goal to text her.

edit: also one night a few years ago, for some reason i parted my hair to the left instead of the right. What do you know? Zach scores his first hattrick.

Dont laugh. It started in '95 and carried over to 2003. Then I stopped until this year. I have to get mad as hell at the other team and literally curse them during the games. I have to stay pissed off for the whole 60 minutes. I sounds easy (crazy) but it's not. It's friggin' exhausting. I've only done it a few times but I chose to do it again this year and it's working so far.

Every time I wore my Devil's Pajamas I got for Christmas 2 years ago they lost. Then I wore them during the NY Giants game when DeSean Jackson returned the punt to win it and I haven't worn them on any game days. Ever. Bad Juju on those pajamas. seriously.

Before every series so far I have trimed (not shaved) my playoff beard and shaved my mustache. I also watch the Springsteen playoff hype video before every game

I grow a playoff beard, but it's for fun rather than superstition. If I had a job interview or something like that I'd shave without a second thought. I also wear my jersey to all playoff games. (I don't always wear it to regular season games.) But again, I'm not really superstitious about it; I just think it's fun to go though the ritual.

I wear my Volchenkov jersey for the duration of every playoff game, only remove it to use the restroom or if I end up making any food. I also haven't had it washed all season long. I've grown the scruffiest nerf herder of a playoff beard, and I can't wait to shave it, but I'll rock it until the final second of the playoffs. I also typically have a six pack of beer throughout the game, with a shot of root beer schnapps during the 2nd intermission. Does it do anything? of course not, but I can't break the habit now. We made it to the finals !! Cheers !

I grew a playoff beard during the first round. After Game 5 and that clusterfvck of a performance, I was convinced they'd get knocked out, so I shaved it off. Lo and behold, they turned it around. So now I shave off my beard after every round.

Brodeur jersey, Brodeur jersey shirt underneath, clutching the Red Alert towel I got at Game 6 against the Panthers in my left hand. And of course the playoff beard.
