Superstitions no surprise for Hawks

While the Blackhawks-Maple Leafs Original 6 matchup tonight is one of tradition, hockey's also a sport that's full of superstition, as ESPN Chicago's Jesse Rogers found out in an entertaining query of the Hawks' gameday rituals in honor of this Friday the 13th tilt.

One thought: Brent Seabrook's superstitions have to be insanely complex to be called out by nearly half the respondents; I wish he'd detailed the full extent of them in his answer.
