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.

Tarik El-Bashir relays some money quotes from Brooks Laich who isn’t here to collect adulation for a nice effort. (Twitter, Twitter again)

Erik Karlsson does a strip tease? Well, not exactly. (Ottawa Sun)

The Sabres can’t wait to celebrate/be outraged by what Jordin Tootoo‘s punishment for running over Ryan Miller is. (Buffalo News)

Remember how mad Jonas Hiller was at his team for losing to Minnesota? Bruce Boudreau is going to have a chat with him about it. (OC Register)

Meanwhile, Boudreau is making awfully good on sounding like he really doesn’t like the Ducks’ rivals, the L.A. Kings. (L.A. Times)

Jonas Gustavsson is making life tricky on Ron Wilson by playing so well. Don’t worry, once James Reimer is fully back in shape, this won’t be an issue anymore. (Sportsnet)

The Blues’ goal scoring has dropped off. Under Ken Hitchcock? No way. (Post-Dispatch)

The Jets get to see how they stack up against the Bruins. Prediction: Not very well. (Winnipeg Sun)

Henrik Karlsson is on IR after getting run over and now Leland Irving gets to back up Miikka Kiprusoff. With a name like that, he’d be a hell of an accountant. (Calgary Sun)
