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.

Winnipeg will be missing Zach Bogosian and Olli Jokinen tonight as the Jets try to stay alive in their fight for a playoff spot. (Winnipeg Sun)

Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang is questionable tonight due to an illness. Evgeni Malkin, Paul Martin, James Neal, and Sidney Crosby are making progress, but aren’t ready to return. (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review)

Although it had previously been an area of concern, the Chicago Blackhawks have been getting results recently with the man advantage. (CSN Chicago)

The Calgary Flames have called up seven players from the AHL as they look towards 2013-14. (Calgary Sun)

Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins goaltenders Jeff Zatkoff and Brad Thiessen are this season’s winners of the Harry “Hap” Holmes Memorial Award. The honor goes to the goaltenders that have played in at least 25 games on the team that finishes the season with the least goals allowed in the AHL. Past winners include Jean-Sebastien Giguere, Martin Biron, and Cory Schneider. (AHL.com)

It looks like the Florida Panthers will get defenseman Erik Gudbranson back soon. (Miami Herald)

Alex Ovechkin‘s surge has certainly been a big part of the Washington Capitals’ success this season, but their second line has been clicking too and that’s given Washington a balanced attack. (Washington Post)

Los Angeles Kings coach Darryl Sutter stood up for forward Anze Kopitar, who hasn’t scored a goal in roughly a month, but does have nine assists in his last 10 games. (LA Kings Insider)
