St. Louis, MO, United States (NewsBahn) - Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook has been banned 3 games for a hit to the head of St. Louis Blues forward David Backes during the teams' playoff game Sunday.

The Blues don't know if Backes will be available for game three yet.

Backes said he didn't mean the play to be vicious and that he was going for the puck.

"I was just trying to make a play on Backes," Seabrook said, according to ESPN. "I thought the puck was there. I was on [Alexander] Steen. I was just coming down the wall and I just tried to finish my hit. I feel bad seeing a guy like that on the ice. I've been there myself, and I'm not trying to target his head. I'm not trying to do anything like that. It doesn't feel good to see a player like that lying there like that, and knowing that I hit him."
