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.

Panthers coach Kevin Dineen was upset about a lot of things and thought last night’s 2-1 loss to Phoenix, “turned into a bit of a power play schmazel.” Laverne and Shirley are proud of that wording. (Sun-Sentinel)

Mario Lemieux skated with the Penguins! …But just for fun. He’s the owner, he can do stuff like that. (NHL)

Anyone seen Mike Cammalleri in Montreal? He’s needed to help the team get their season back on track. (Montreal Gazette)
