Morning Bag Skate: Division title hopes sinking for 'Hawks after latest loss

Our daily look at Blackhawks news and the happenings around the world of hockey.

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

The Blackhawks' recent stumbles may be cause for concern, but the team is still comfortably in the playoffs with just nine games remaining in the regular season. That also means there's not much time to keep messing around with performances like this, though. Here's the latest news:

**Kimmo Timonen reflected on his Flyers days before his old teammates smacked around the Blackhawks. It was nice seeing Philly welcome him back with open arms. (CSN Chicago)

**Patrick Kane GoPro videos will never stop being fun to watch. (SCH)

**Wayne Simmonds and Andrew MacDonald played their final games of the season in the Flyers' win over Chicago on Wednesday. Both will be held out for the remainder of the year due to injury. (CSN Philly)

**The lottery to determine who will get the chance to land Connor McDavid and Jack Eichel is set for April 18. Buffalo currently has the top odds. (Sportsnet)

**Sabres coach Ted Nolan doesn't want the team to finish in last place, however. I'd be curious to know if management agrees with that, not that I expect the coach to want to lose. (Buffalo News)

**Steve Moses has left the KHL and reportedly has interest from NHL teams. (PHT)

**A judge has denied the NHL's motion to dismiss a class-action lawsuit brought by former players over concussion-related injuries. (PHT)

**The Senators have had to ask fans to stop throwing hamburgers onto the ice to celebrate Andrew "the Hamburglar" Hammond, who's gone 14-0-1 to start his career in Ottawa. (Ottawa Citizen)

**Bizarre story here involving Nick Leddy and harassment on Twitter. Really wish the platform had better ways of dealing with this stuff. The FBI is involved in this situation currently. (PHT)

**The Islanders added some goaltending depth to their organization. (PHT)
