I would suggest not watching, dvring the game, but utter the words "I don't intend to use my remote to watch this game on replay" out loud, with your fingers crossed. Then have someone else drive the remote to replay it, while you are in the next room watching through the doorway. That should cover all needed mojo.

EDIT: Or if you have the capability, DVR it and watch it as soon as the game ends.

I watched every damn minute of Games 1, 2, and 3 of this series. Assorted conflicts caused me to miss Games 4 and 5 and the best I've been able to do is check the score sometimes and then watch highlights later. For obvious reasons, I'll be staying the hell away from the TV during Game 6, too. I must not bring the whammy back. On the other hand, if something happens during this series that.....would be worth watching, I would hate to miss it. If I DVR the game with the intent to watch it after learning the outcome, is that the same as if I watch it live? I need to tread lightly around the whims of the hockey gods!
Boy, I'm glad to know I'm not the only one doing this! I thought it was ME who was jinxing them, but maybe not. Peeking in to check the score from time to time is the only way I'm doing it, so I don't put a hex on them.
If this is what it takes for them to win, I'll keep doing it. As for your dilemma, well, you can only follow your conscience. I put my two cents in for what it's worth.

Do not DVR it.
Do not ask another to DVR it.
The answer is simple. After the outcome of the game has been decided, watched the complete game at Hulu.com. Hulu is an official partner of the NHL and provides great streams. I use it for anime all the time.
No, I have no financial interest of any kind in Hulu, and yes, it's a legit site.
