Much as we expected the Pittsburgh Penguins have come out firing through their first two games this season. They've outscored their opponents 7-1 but they should face a little bit stiffer competition when the Carolina Hurricanes come to town on Tuesday night. On Saturday the Penguins got first period goals from Sidney Crosby and Chuck Kobasew and never looking back in their 4-1 victory over the Buffalo Sabres. Chris Kunitz and Craig Adams also scored and Marc-Andre Fleury was strong in net again. This is about as sure of a playoff team as there in the league because there talent during the course of the regular season is too much to overcome. They're almost impossible to prepare for during the year and they use it to their advantage all the time. What they need to do is figure out how to adjust their game when teams get to play them night after night in a post season series. 
 
The Carolina Hurricanes choked away their home opener against the Detroit Red Wings on Friday night but they rebounded nicely on Sunday against the Philadelphia Flyers. Jay Harrison's first period goal gave the Hurricanes a 1-0 lead and after Philadelphia tied it in the second it was Radek Dvorak scoring his second of the year and what proved to be the game winner. Anton Khudobin got the start in net and didn't have to do too much against a lifeless Flyers club, stopping 17 of the 18 shots he faced. Now the Hurricanes will have to up their game against some serious competition in the Penguins. Carolina will be much improved this year but this is going to be a tough one here on Tuesday night.

Pick:
Pittsburgh -186

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" (cfbplace.com), After the 2008 college football season I change focus and launched CBBplace.com, 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.
