Zack Stortini Being Zack Stortini

The above video depicts Zack Stortini doing Zack Stortini things. It’s likely not the first nor the last time this former Oiler/Baron ground pounds a turtled opponent. But the incident is interesting because it featured some comments from the easily quotable Toronto Marlies coach, Dallas Eakins.

Heres the quote, via great work by Kyle Cicarella (whom covers the Marlies):

“That is about as cowardly of a play as you see,” said Eakins after the game. “The guy is down and you’re still punching him. I got no use for that. I thought the referee could have grabbed the guy’s arm. He was the closest guy, but it looked like he was waiting for the linesman.”
