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.

The Calgary Flames can take quite a few positives from their 3-2 shootout loss to Chicago on Saturday, but at 1-3-2, they desperately need more than just moral victories. (Calgary Sun)

The Ottawa Senators have scored just one goal in their last two games without Jason Spezza, but Senators coach Paul MacLean doesn’t seem too worried yet. He argues that the big thing is that they’re still creating scoring chances, even if they haven’t been able to capitalize on them recently. (Sportsnet)

Eric Belanger has been placed on the injured reserve list by the Edmonton Oilers. The 35-year-old enforcer was struck in the foot by a slap shot on Saturday. (Edmonton Sun)

Chicago Blackhawks forward Jonathan Toews has gotten off to a strong start this season, but he wants to improve off the ice. The 24-year-old captain wants to “stay even-keeled and not get frustrated” and be a positive presence, even when things aren’t going well for his team. (Chicago Tribune)

Forward Andy Miele has been returned to the minors by the Phoenix Coyotes. They have replaced him on the roster with 22-year-old defenseman David Rundblad, who was taken in the first round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. (Coyotes.nhl.com)

How much longer will it take Toronto Maple Leafs forward Phil Kessel to score his first goal of 2013? (Sportsnet)

Edmonton Oilers Devan Dubnyk has been taking advantage of the opportunity to serve as the team’s undisputed number one goaltender. (Edmonton Journal)
