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.

It has been rough the last couple years for Pittsburgh’s Paul Martin. After almost getting run out of town on a rail, he’s proving what he’s all about so far this season. (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review)

John Tavares and the New York Islanders are cruising right now. (Newsday)

Who’s had the worst job since the season began? Goalies. (Detroit Free Press)

Speaking of having a rough time, how about Detroit’s Jimmy Howard? No, he’s played decently he just hasn’t had a day off yet. (Freep)

The Dallas Stars are very nearly fully healthy and just waiting on Derek Roy to get better. That should help out the army of kids they’ve had to play in the meantime. (Dallas Morning News)

Hope you’re ready for a day filled with hockey. There are 11 games today and the first one drops the puck at 1 p.m. ET with New Jersey visiting Pittsburgh.
