I spent the night in front of the television watching my defending Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins play the Washington Capitals in the opening game of their playoff series. The game was scoreless at the end of regulation time. Sudden death was next. I went into my office to pay a few bills, went back into the TV room when the overtime started, and thought I needed to do something to change the Bruins' luck. So I turned off the lights and moved to the opposite end of the couch. Five seconds after I sat down, the Bruins scored to win the game, 1-0. Coincidence? I don't think so.
