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.

Yup, the Islanders wore their third jerseys last night and no, it didn’t help them beat the Flyers. They at least played a little bit better than they have been losing in overtime. (CSNPhilly)

Speaking of bad teams, Adrian Dater of The Denver News is pretty sure he’s covering one in the Colorado Avalanche. (All Things Avs)

Also playing horrible? The Anaheim Ducks who lost their 14th game in their last 16. Save them Teemu, you’re their only hope. (OC Register)

Ron Hainsey was thrown to the wolves in returning from injury. (Winnipeg Sun)

Former Capitals forward Eric Fehr was a bit conflicted playing against the Caps in Washington last night as a member of the Winnipeg Jets. (CSNWashington)

Antti Niemi pulled out all the stops shutting out his former Chicago teammates in a 1-0 Sharks win. (CSNBayArea)

Did you know that Tomas Fleischmann is a wizard? Just ask the Rangers about his skills. (Sun-Sentinel)

Finally, with 13 games going on last night you probably wound up missing something. Here’s NHL.com’s look at all the best of last night’s action. (NHL)
