2014 NHL Playoffs: Brent Seabrook ejected for this massive hit on David Backes (GIF)

The St. Louis Blues and Chicago Blackhawks have already provided enough highlights to fill a full seven-game series after their triple overtime game on Thursday night, and Saturday’s Game 2 in St. Louis provided the most controversial after a hit from Brent Seabrook left David Backes dazed and confused.

Seabrook hit

Seabrook was hit with a game misconduct and with the game headed to overtime after the Blues tied the game with 6.4 seconds remaining on a goal by Vladimir Tarasenko, his second of the playoffs, on the resulting power play, assisted by Alex Pietrangelo, and Kevin Shattenkirk.

The league office is undoubtedly going to take a long and hard look at this hit and NBC analyst Mike Milbury already said that Seabrook is looking at a two-three game suspension.
