PHT Morning Skate: Where Ryan Getzlaf can’t buy a goal

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.

Ryan Getzlaf is having a hell of a time finding ways to score goals these days. He’s got just eight goals as it is and is getting frustrated. (OC Register)

The Flames love Miikka Kiprusoff. They love him so much they let him get lit up by the Oilers 6-1 last night. (Edmonton Sun)

Even when the Los Angeles Kings score goals they’re finding ways to lose. Like getting up 3-0 on Phoenix before losing 5-4 in a shootout. (Los Angeles Times)

Claude Noel warned his Jets about scoring all those goals. Losing 5-4 in overtime in a “firewagon” game to the Flyers wasn’t his idea of fun. (Winnipeg Sun)

Mike Ribeiro‘s reaction to playing in Montreal for the first time since being traded to Dallas six years ago left a bad taste in just about everyone in Montreal’s mouth. (Montreal Gazette)

Zach Parise didn’t appreciate the hit he got from Dion Phaneuf. He did, however, appreciate seeing David Clarkson have his back though. (Fire & Ice)

    {crickets chirping} about Getzlaf yet Ovechkin while having what 23 goals? is a lazy db and an offense to the C on his shirt…makes sense.

        No need- I think the people who are actual decent people around here, Penguins fans or haters alike, know better than to judge a whole fan base by the actions of one (and yes, I’m still convinced it’s ONE) dingus with a bizarre need to troll.

    I will never go away. if I get banned I will be right back so keep looking forward to us spreading the word of the franchise!!!!

    Please ban spiffy69 from posting, he is slowly causing the NHL to loose fans with his boring dated oldman logic

    • spiffy53 - Feb 22, 2012 at 10:24 AM

      it’s “lose” not “loose” genius. maybe a little old man logic would do you some good.

  7. govtminion - Feb 22, 2012 at 10:26 AM

    And here we go again…

    • hockinj25 - Feb 22, 2012 at 12:06 PM

  8. mrskunitzdrippinlips - Feb 22, 2012 at 10:36 AM

    shouldnt you, govtmule and stiffy, be at work contributing to society instead of looking on hockey websites all day? you both are probably retarded and the government gives you free money.

    I don’t want to tell people how to do their job but couldn’t you (PhT) ban his IP address from posting that way he can’t just change screen names.

  10. federovs4skn - Feb 22, 2012 at 2:27 PM

    sportsfreak you should probably get a job of your own first and stop posting on here all day like a complete loser rather than telling people how to do their jobs. so insulting… and this is coming from a true wings fan. geez

  11. sportsfreak13 - Feb 22, 2012 at 4:33 PM
