Maurice says he and Edmonton coach have similar challenges

January 17, 2014 - 12:41 PM

WINNIPEG - New Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice says he has a lot in common with former coaching partner Dallas Eakins.

They both have young teams that still have to learn to like playing the hard parts of the game.

Eakins started his coaching career as Maurice's assistant with the Toronto Marlies and moved with him to the Leafs.

He took over Edmonton in June and Maurice took over the Jets only last Sunday.

The two teams meet Saturday afternoon in Winnipeg.

The Jets have won their last two games under Maurice, outscoring their opponents 10-3 in the process, while Edmonton is on a three-game losing streak.
