PHT’s Morning Skate takes a look around the world of hockey to see what’s happening and what we’ll be talking about around the NHL world and beyond.

There was much sadness in the Wild after getting beat by the Blackhawks in five games, including center Matt Cullen who thinks he may have played his final game with the team. (@Russostrib)

Adding to that, coach Mike Yeo feels bad for Mikko Koivu saying he thought his captain was snakebitten through the series. (@Russostrib)

Know what’s been a brutal part of the Anaheim-Detroit series? The arduous travel. Both teams are probably happy to see Detroit go east next season. (Detroit Free Press)

There’s a lot of finger-pointing going on in Vancouver, and one of those fingers is going toward how the goalie situation was handled. (The Province)

Meanwhile, “Roberto Luongo” tweets out: “So............ Shall we try this one more time??? #offseason” (@Strombone1)

Montreal’s loss in five games to Ottawa wasn’t all bleak when you remember the Habs finished last in the division last year. (Montreal Gazette)
