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 Devils’ 3-2 overtime loss to the Flyers didn’t go over well with the team, especially Jaromir Jagr who said, “I am so angry right now.” (Fire & Ice)

Matt Cooke summed up how the Wild beat the Kings 2-1 in a shootout nicely: “It was ugly, but sometimes on the road, you’ve got to find a way.” (Star-Tribune)

John Tortorella on the Canucks’ 5-4 shootout loss to the Penguins that saw them blow a lead in the closing minutes: “This one was a doozy.” Whoa, ease up with the strong language there coach. (Metro News)

The Pens’ win helped Dan Bylsma pass legendary coach Eddie Johnston on the franchise’s all-time win list. He was humbled to say the least: “He’s a pretty big figure in our dressing room, big figure in our organization. It’s a milestone.” (Shelly Anderson)

Evgeni Nabokov‘s injury isn’t considered serious and will likely miss two weeks. (Arthur Staple)

    The writer for the Vancouver article might want to read up on his Vancouver goalies…kind of implicates Luongo in the beginning of the article.
