PHT Morning Skate: Where Ryan Getzlaf can’t buy a goal


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.

Ryan Getzlaf is having a hell of a time finding ways to score goals these days. He’s got just eight goals as it is and is getting frustrated. (OC Register)

The Flames love Miikka Kiprusoff. They love him so much they let him get lit up by the Oilers 6-1 last night. (Edmonton Sun)

Even when the Los Angeles Kings score goals they’re finding ways to lose. Like getting up 3-0 on Phoenix before losing 5-4 in a shootout. (Los Angeles Times)

Claude Noel warned his Jets about scoring all those goals. Losing 5-4 in overtime in a “firewagon” game to the Flyers wasn’t his idea of fun. (Winnipeg Sun)

Mike Ribeiro’s reaction to playing in Montreal for the first time since being traded to Dallas six years ago left a bad taste in just about everyone in Montreal’s mouth. (Montreal Gazette)

Zach Parise didn’t appreciate the hit he got from Dion Phaneuf. He did, however, appreciate seeing David Clarkson have his back though. (Fire & Ice)
