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.

There’s good news for Buffalo’s Zemgus Girgensons after taking a Tyler Myers shot in the forehead. Coach Ron Rolston says he’s going to be fine, they just need the swelling to go down. (Sabres Twitter)

You can’t stop Phoenix’s Rob Klinkhammer, you can’t even hope you’ll contain him as he scored his third goal of the year against Ottawa. He’s two goals away from his career-high for a season. (Rotoworld)

Make it four losses in a row for the Edmonton Oilers. At least there’s no shame in losing a tough one to Pittsburgh… Right? (Edmonton Journal)

    “We did battle hard and we had a goalie today, too.” I’m taking it Hemsky is not a Dubnyk fan, eh?

    That was a really good game, though. Eberle is really something to watch.

    Too bad Grigorenko did not get hit. Maybe it would knock sense into him on how to play at this level. He is NOT ready. Once again, Darcy screwed up by keeping him here last year. He was not THAT good, like Tyler Myers was his first year. He needs more time in Junior.
