John Scott Was Just Doing His Job

from Kevin Kurz of CSNBayArea,

“It’s one of those things where he jumped me in the first and didn’t give me a chance, so I was kind of just returning the favor,” Scott said. “I asked him to fight. The situations were eerily similar, so that’s what leaves me scratching my head.”

Of course, Jackman also strangely went after Sharks defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic earlier in the third period, and that was on Scott’s mind as well when he legally came off of the bench and made a beeline for Jackman in the neutral zone.

“We obviously got up 3-0, 4-0, and they took liberties with our guys,” Scott said. “That’s where I come in, man-to-man with their tough guy and we settle it. That’s the way it’s supposed to be, the way it’s always been done and it didn’t quite work out that way.

“[The referees] should have taken care of it earlier when he went after [Vlasic]. They should have kicked him out of the game, but if the refs don’t take care of it, that’s kind of my job. I’ve got to stick up and do my job.”
