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.

Jonas Hiller was steaming mad after the Ducks lost to the Wild last night. Is it so bad losing to the top team in the NHL? (OC Register)

Yes, it’s true. The Wild are the very best in the league now after their victory. Seriously. (Russo’s Rants)

If you haven’t read the New York Times’ piece on Derek Boogaard titled “A Boy Learns to Brawl” you really should. (New York Times)

Nashville’s defense is to blame for their recent skid? Everyone except Shea Weber and Ryan Suter of course. (Tennessean)

Make it three wins in a row for the Avalanche. See, they put wins together without threatening Joe Sacco’s job. (All Things Avs)

Both Henrik Karlsson and Miikka Kiprusoff were run over by Canucks forwards in the Flames’ 5-1 loss to Vancouver. Open season on goalies, indeed. (Flames)

Things are slowly plodding along with the sale of the St. Louis Blues to Matthew Hulsizer. (Post-Dispatch)

Jared Cowen is starting to get his game figured out in Ottawa. As for David Rundblad… (Ottawa Sun)

Valtteri Filppula could be in a bit of trouble after getting his leg cut by a skate against Colorado. (Detroit Free Press)

Finally, while the Wings lost to Colorado 4-2 to snap a seven-game win streak, it wasn’t without a little bit of magic from Pavel Datsyuk courtesy of his feed to Johan Franzen. (NHL)
