This one should be a lot of fun on Saturday afternoon in Pittsburgh with two teams who have championship aspirations meeting up. The Penguins have been great to start the year despite two of their best players being out of the lineup. With no James Neal or Kris Letang they've still posted a 5-1-0 record to start the season behind strong goaltending from Marc-Andre Fleury and Sidney Crosby doing his thing. Evgeni Malkin was off to a slow start but he's getting going now and scored again in Thursday night's victory over the Philadelphia Flyers. Pittsburgh loves to play these Saturday afternoon home games and they might benefit from getting the Canucks up and on the ice early in the Eastern time zone. Vancouver is in the middle of this length trip and while they're coming off a dominating win over the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday this will be no easy task. Roberto Luongo has played well for the most part but he'll need to be at the top of his game on Saturday and the Canucks will have to stay out of the box. These are two pretty evenly matched teams but the Penguins on home ice and getting this one during the day should be enough to take down the Canucks.

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.
