Penguins Game Open Thread: Tempting fate in an effort to reverse the jinx

Justin K. Aller

The Penguins started their first round playoff series against the New York Islanders up one game to none, and ahead 3-1 in the second period. Then came BTSC's Open Thread.

The Penguins were firmly in control and looked poised to whip through their first round series against the Islanders.

Until Behind The Steel Curtain put up an open thread to discuss the action - at that point, the Pens were dominating 3-1 in Game 2.

Since the posting of that thread, the two teams are tied at 13 in scoring and tied at two in games won.

The Penguins can clinch it tonight, and I'm actually going to watch it. I've got a pizza on the way, some beer still from last night and a daughter who should be asleep by the start of the second period.

I'm going to reverse the jinx I'm at least partially responsible for creating. I'm going to post another open thread, and the Pens are going to win this game. Then we won't ever again have to worry about an open thread jinxing another team. After all with the way Liriano threw today (yes, Francisco Liriano, Twins fans...the guy who couldn't pitch past the fourth inning if his life depended on it), ya never know how many other Pittsburgh teams will have more postseason success than the Steelers.
