Reporter: "[Inaudible] won the game on the power play, power play was struggling again tonight…"
Eakins: "The power play was one-for three, 33 percent. That’s a hell of a night."
For those who didn’t see the game, the power play allowed one shorthanded goal on it’s first attempt, created almost nothing in five full minutes late in the third with the Oilers holding a one-goal lead (after which the Hurricanes scored to tie it) and then won the game in overtime.
Which rather strongly suggests that whatever else coaching the Oilers has done to Eakins, it hasn’t robbed him of his sense of humour.
Final note for the irony-impaired: I think this is funny, and you look ridiculous when you angrily demand why I’m ‘calling out’ Eakins.
