There's nothing better than a match up between the Boston Bruins and the Vancouver Canucks, despite the two teams playing seperate conferences and not seeing each other that often. The Stanley Cup Final between these two clubs was one of the best in recent history and the animosity between the clubs was so strong you could feel it through the television. With most of the core players still around on both sides the animosity still lingers and there should be plenty of nasty stuff in this one on Saturday night. The Bruins come into this one winners of four straight games and coming off wins over the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers on this trip. After a slow start against the Flames the Bruins came out strong against Edmonton, getting goals from Dennis Seidenberg, Jarome Iginla, and Brad Marchand to give them a 3-0 lead after the first period of play. The Oilers would cut the lead to a goal but the Bruins would hold on and seal the deal with Iginla's empty net goal. Now the Bruins will head to Vancouver to take on a Canucks club that is absolutely rolling right now. The Canucks won their sixth straight game on Friday night when they shutout the Oilers 4-0 at Rogers Arena. Daniel Sedin's 11th goal of the seaon gave the Canucks a 1-0 lead and Vancouver would build on it in the third. Zack Kassian, Chris Higgins, and Dale Weise added goals in the third period to lead the Canucks to the win. This Canucks hockey club has been playing some really good hockey over this winning streak and playing exactly the way John Tortorell wants them too. Vancouver hasn't allowed more than two goals during the winning streak and Saturday night will be a huge test against a physical Boston team. There's no doubt that Tortorella wants to make this hockey club tougher but there's no way to do it without facing off against clubs of Boston's caliber and getting punched in the mouth. In my opinion Boston is still the better hockey club but this is their third game on this western Canadian swing and they're facing the Canucks when they're rolling. 

Pick:
Vancouver -116

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.

This site is a big Thank You to all of our readers, visitors, and community where we have been given a platform to talk to the masses about sports and hopefully help put you on some winners. If you need to reach me just shoot an email to [email protected]
