SeabrookCrushesBackes

In game two of their Western Conference Quarterfinal matchup, the Chicago Blackhawks and St. Louis Blues have been exchanging some pleasantries.  This time, it was Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook depositing his elbow into the face of forward David Backes.  This play happened while the Blues were on the powerplay.

Check out the two different angles of the hit. Seabrook was given a five-minute major for charging and a game misconduct. Meanwhile, Backes went to the dark room for an evaluation and has not come back out on the ice yet.
