He should be calming his players down and refocusing them on the game, and reminding them what they need to do to win. Instead he's thrown tantrums behind the bench and name-called in front of microphones. He's only frustrating his own players by convincing them that their problems are solely due to things they can't control.
I agree with all of this. And the things you mention are all things that he was excelling at for the first few months of the season.
I'm not sure if it was the struggle of the team going in, the Eller injury or simply just being in the playoffs. But a lot of his composure has gone out the window and he seems a lot closer to the Therrien of old than the Jack Adams candidate we saw for much of the year.
