    I think I might start that one. A couple weeks ago a teammate joked while I was re-taping my stick before a game, asking if my new taping was going to get me to score more goals. Got 2 goals and an assist in a 4-3 win, which is pretty unusual for me. Didn't do it last week and only got an assist in a 7-6 win.

    I dress the same way every time, but that's habit rather than superstition.
    Wear cup to the game
    Pants
    Shin pads
    Socks
    Skates
    Undershirt (black undershirt from when I wore BDUs before I bought ABUs)
    Shoulder pads
    Elbow pads
    Jersey
    Helmet
    Gloves

    I also always skate warm up time with my helmet chin strap unhooked. I haven't really been playing actual on-a-team-in-a-league hockey long enough to develop superstitions.

    My wife can't touch my sticks. If she touches a brand new $150 one piece, its in the trash. She's the devil of the hockey world.

    Some of this stuff you guys are saying strikes me as just habit. Like the order in which you put your equipment on.

    If I put on something out of order it messes with me until I take everything off and start over. If I use the wrong stick for the wrong team I might as well play without one because nothing good ever comes of it. Lord help me if I touch the red line. oooooo ****.

    If I've got 2 goals in a game with time left - don't you dare say hat trick to me! Just like a goalie with shutout.

    Have to tap my goalie's pillows before the game starts - can't touch the blocker or catcher (yes, that's my superstition, not his).

    I used to go left shin, then right but decided that was garbage. now I go with whatever I pull out of the bag first.

    No socks in the skates (not really a superstition, it just feels better)

    Same compression shorts and underarmer shirt every night - even if they're not washed and still wet from the night before (I do hang them up after every game so usually they're both dry). Eww...

    One team I'm on got new jerseys - we immediately went on a 3 game losing streak so we wore the old ones for a game and then switched back to the new ones. (and went all the way to the finals in our div)

    I'm sure there's more!

    This thread is way better than the '6 days 'til somethin big' thread!

    I totally forgot about this one! In one game, it was the closing minutes and we were up, like 4-0. I remember thinking, just briefly, shutout?

    BAMN! A high shot (head hunter type) gets a funny ricochet off the side of my helmet and goes in!

    That word is the reason for 1-goal games!

    Never again! Bad thoughts!

    I knew someone was gonna go there.

    On a side note, my daughter plays goalie. She was playing in a game a few months back and was having a great game, but kept dropping her brand new stick. With the finich on the stick and the ice and the ... she just couldn't hold on to the thing.

    I ran into the locker room and got her old stick and handed it to the coach. On the next whistle they swapped her stick. Guess what! Three goals on the next three shots in about two minutes.

    Never mess with a goalie's mojo and new ever ever ever say shut out. "Shutout is confirmed". Mythbusters can check out that one for sure.
