Being from New England, I know a little something about the girlfriend jinx. Since Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen got together, the Patriots have not won a Super Bowl. Before the two paired up, Brady led the Pats to three. Is it crazy to blame Gisele for New England’s championship “drought” over the past six years? Not for New Englanders. Luckily for the Rangers’ Brad Richards, his new girlfriend appears to be doing quite the opposite for New York.
According to Just Jared, Richards has been dating actress/model Olivia Munn for the past couple weeks. The first game the Rangers played while Richards was supposedly in his new relationship was on October 31st against the Sharks. New York won that game and has won six more since, making them a perfect 7-0 since Richards and Munn got together.
Good luck charm? Maybe so. Richards has three goals and five points during the stretch, so it’s possible his new lady friend has injected some confidence and energy into his game. Munn may not be able to work the magical powers that Justin Bieber music or talking to your bat can perform, but one thing’s for sure: the Rangers won’t be allowing any type of break-up until at least after the streak ends.
Fist pound to Puck Daddy for passing along the story.
