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.

The Canucks didn’t exactly roll out the welcome mat for their visitors from Ottawa this weekend. (Senators Extra)

Making matters worse, the Canucks got a couple of iffy hits from Andrew Alberts on Kaspars Daugavins and Alex Burrows opening the door on Jesse Winchester. Hey, maybe Mark Recchi had a point. (Ottawa Sun)

Paul Maurice gets to yuk it up after beating his former team. Rage on Leafs fans. (Toronto Sun)

Easton is supplying Ottawa’s Erik Karlsson with sticks and they’re loving seeing him tear through them like crazy. (Senators Extra)

The Ducks power play is terrible. If I were a lesser man I’d say it was for the birds. Alas, here we are. (OC Register)

The Stars, meanwhile, would like to stop giving their opponents too many power play chances. (Stars)

Keith Primeau is doing his best in his post-playing career to discuss concussions and player safety. (

Scott Gomez is feeling better after dealing with a torn muscle. Now about all the booing in Montreal... (Montreal Gazette)

Finally, Detroit’s Brad Stuart must be a hell of a billiards player if he can play bounces like this to get an empty net goal. (NHL)
