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.
If you were doubting that Alexander Radulov was actually coming back, doubt no more as he took a picture of himself on the plane to Nashville and shared it via Twitter saying, “In the plaine going to new york then Nashville. )))” (@RADUL22)
Hey look, Alex Ovechkin is playing the way a captain should for a team in desperate need. Amazing, isn’t it? (The Washington Post)
Martin Brodeur is hoping last night’s game at Madison Square Garden isn’t his last. (Fire & Ice)

Despite tough fight, Stars hand Wild their sixth straight loss
This dominant win is a heck of a way for the Kings to begin an imposing seven-game road trip, which continues against the New York Islanders on Thursday. The Bruins probably want to burn the tape on this one themselves, as they’re about to head on a six-game road trip.
Per @EliasSports: @LAKings had 9 different skaters score in a game for 5th time in franchise history. Last: Jan. 21, 1987 vs. PIT (10-5 W).
Some hockey players resist the urge to wear a visor, at least if they’re given that choice.
Perhaps a few will say “Hey, Nathan Beaulieu will just punch it off anyway.”
Maybe not, but Beaulieu provided a rather unique moment in his fight with Cedric Paquette during the Montreal Canadiens – Tampa Bay Lightning game. You can watch that bout in the video above, and see a cut on the Lightning pest’s face from that blow.
