Let's Go Blues!!!!
This is about what I was expecting for the hit - regular season, maybe a game or two more. Three games in the playoffs is huge, and he's a very important player for the Blackhawks. This could throw a wrench in their gameplan for the rest of this series.
Them missing Seabrook is bigger than us missing Backes imo. However, in the long run, we absolutely lose. Backes will likely miss more than 3 games and when he does come back, he might not be the same player for a little bit. Plus, if we win the series we’re missing a key player for who knows how long. They’re only missing one for 3 games.
