BLOG: Eakins loses his cool

by Marc Ciampa / Edmonton Oilers

Oilers head coach Dallas Eakins showed some frustration out on the ice during morning skate today. While explaining a drill, he got flustered and end up throwing his sharpie as a result.

It was no big deal, said Eakins.

"It's one of those things. The morning skate for me, a lot of times I don't think it has a lot to do with the game at night but the problem is we didn't practice yesterday so we had to do a little work this morning.

"The listening skills weren't there so I had to raise my voice and get them in check. It's part of the day, sometimes. It was no big deal."
