Duncan Keith taunts David Backes after Seabrook’s hit ☆

Brent Seabrook’s hit on David Backes was probably enough to make your blood boil if you support the St. Louis Blues.

The two have plenty of history (see: Toews barfing in the penalty box after Backes pummeled him), so it’s not exactly surprising...

Brent Seabrook Injures David Backes On Dirty Hit, Gets Ejected
