David Backes Calls Out Oscar Sundqvist For Dirty Hit.

Published May 30, 2019 at 3:19 PM

St. Blues forward Oscar Sundqvist will have a hearing today for his dirty hit on Boston Bruins defenseman Matt Grzelcyk. 

The league has been pretty inconsistent regarding discipline during the playoffs, so it's hard to tell if he'll be suspended or not. 

One thing is for sure, Bruins forward David Backes isn't too happy with the hit. 

"I don't think that's a hit we want in our game," Backes said. "It was from behind, elevated into his head into the glass. If that's a two minute penalty, there's going to be a shortage of defenseman I think in this series by the end of it, but that's in somebody's else's hands. That's something I think if I'm making that hit, I'm probably watching from the bleachers for a few. But we'll see what happens with their player."

With comments like that, it wouldn't be surprising to see Game 3 get even rougher than the first two games have been.
