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.

Apparently bad drivers help Evander Kane get in the proper angry mindset for a game. Feel free to cut him off Jets fans, it only helps his game. (Winnipeg Sun)

The Red Wings are falling over themselves to pump the Blackhawks’ tires. Whatever happened to rivalries? (Detroit Free Press)

So the Predators won’t rush Shea Weber back from a concussion. Good idea, guys. (Tennessean)

Tick-tock Matthew Hulsizer, your deadline to buy the Blues is approaching. (Post-Dispatch)

Kris Russell‘s groin injury has him out at least three weeks. Everyone all wince together now. (Post-Dispatch)

We’ll just call Jarome Iginla‘s game against the Isles last night a bad one, OK? (Calgary Sun)

The Kings still can’t score goals. In other news, water is wet. (NHL)

James Wisniewski broke his ankle last night. Maybe the Blue Jackets were built on a Civil War graveyard, that’s the only explanation for their luck. (Puck Rakers)

Another night, another bad loss for the Ducks. This time it’s at least against the Canucks. (OC Register)

Ever wonder what goes on inside the “Quiet Room” for potential concussion victims? Check it out. (Backhand Shelf)

Finally, watch Eric Staal break the hearts of Leafs fans and send Toronto reeling. This should only make the nonsensical Staal-to-Toronto rumors all the more wistful. (NHL)
