it wasn't the prettiest win for the Detroit Red Wings on Friday night but when two of your best players are out of the lineup you take the wins any way you can get them. Absent Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk from the lineup the Red Wings used a sluggish New Jersey Devils team to their advantage, holding them to an incredible 11 shots on goals for the game. Jonas Gustavsson got the start int net for Detroit and after allowing a first period power play goal he was not tested much, stopping 10 shots total in the game. With Detroit trailing by a goal late in the second period it was Joakim Andersson scoring his fourth of the second period with just over thirty seconds escort to even the score. Johan Franzen and Tomas Tatar added goals in the third period as the Red Wings held on for the 3-1 victory. Now they return home to take on a Florida Panthers clubs that is one of the worst in the league but is playing hard of late. Florida snapped a three game losing streak on Thirsday night with a solid victory over the Winnipeg Jets. Dylan Olsen and Tomas Fleischmann scored second period goals to snap a 1-1 tie, and  Nick Bjugstad and Jimmy Hayes added goals in the third period as the Pamthers continue on with their youth movement crusade. When you go for broke with your young kids there are going to be a lot of rough times and growing pains. There will also be times where the Panthers will exceed expectations and surprise some I expecting clubs, so long as the talent level is there. Florida seems like they have a lot of good young pieces, it's all about finding out which ones are the keepers and which ones are the guys the Panthers look to movToni exchange for other pieces of need. Saturday night will be a big test for this hockey club and they have a golden opportunity in this one with the Red Wings on the second night of a back to back and all banged up.

Florida +181

On July 1, 2008 I typed into Google "How Do I start A Blog" and I started my first website called "Miami Mitch's Place" where i shared my college football Picks and predictions as well as opinion. By the Fall I had heard from many that the title made it sound like the site was about Miami so I changed it to "College Football Place" (, After the 2008 college football season I change focus and launched, it wasn't long after that when I realized I just wanted one place to add all sports, and that's when Sports Chat Place was born.
