If the teacher said that it shows a lack of emotional maturity that might be true. Just stupid on his/her part. It shows a lack of education when someone makes stupid statements like that. I'm not really all that superstitious, I do hate jinxes. However, I don't ACTUALLY believe someone saying shutout has something to do with Lundqvist giving up a goal. It's irrational. It's emotional.

Anyway Go Rangers! I think we have enough talent to tie this series, then it's anyone's series.
I agree, I think I said HS teachers don't know ****, was being facetious with that comment but still that used to irk me when they had a sense of superiority same with college professors. It was like 12 years ago, only reason I remember is because I told my mom because we always used to tease him about it.
