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.

Paul Maurice’s hot seat got a bit warmer in Carolina after losing to Ottawa. (News & Observer)

Randy Carlyle said his team looked, “dead between the ears” in losing to Toronto. He might be a dead man walking if the Ducks don’t wake up. (NHL.com)

Oh sure thing Terry Murray, we all believe Trent Hunter is a first line player for the Kings. Yikes. (L.A. Kings Insider)

In non-coaching news, Zdeno Chara is also becoming quite the offensive defenseman too. (CSNNE.com)

The Caps are really hoping a homestand can fix their ills. They’d better hope so. (CSNWashington.com)

After scoring more than 30 goals last year, Drew Stafford‘s season isn’t going so hot this time. (Buffalo News)

Jim Lites is more than pleased with being back running things in Dallas. (Stars)

Stefan Elliott is hoping his big debut turns into him sticking around in Colorado. (All Things Avs)

Francis Bouillon‘s groin is forcing him out of action and back to Nashville for repairs. (Tennessean)

The BCHL is trying out 3-on-3 overtime. Is the NHL watching how it goes to see if it can solve the shootout conundrum? (All Habs)

Finally, have a look at Toronto’s Matt Frattin bouncing off of former Leafs defenseman Francois Beauchemin. Frattin obviously hit the combo breaker on that hit. (NHL)
