IT’S TIME! TIME FOR THE PLAYOFFS BABY!

The Toronto Maple Leafs take on the Bruins in Boston for game 1 of the first round of the playoffs. You can read our preview here.

Now I’ve never really had superstitions in sports, at least none that really stuck for very long. The most I can say is during the Leafs’ first playoff run vs Boston that had the first infamous game 7 collapse, my friends and I went to the same bar, got the same seats, and ordered the same drinks and food.

Other people, though, they take it to a whole new level, as this hilarious thread from Down Goes Brown about his playoff superstition attests.

Do you have any superstitions? If you do, I hope you’re conforming to them to the max. If you don’t, invent some until you find something that works. ALL HANDS ARE ON DECK TO THE BEAT. THOSE. BRUINS!!

GO LEAFS GO!

BUDS ALL DAY!
