Fight video (and more): Jonathan Toews vs. David Backes


Say what you will about the Blackhawks – Blues rivalry – some will sardonically compare it to a hammer and nail, at least in the playoffs – but it seems pretty clear that they really, really don’t like each other.

The two captains exemplify that distaste, and they really showed it on Saturday.

In one hit, Jonathan Toews was whistled for illegal hit to the head on David Backes.

Later on, the real headliner happened, however, as Backes boarded Niklas Hjalmarsson and then fought with Toews (see in the top video).

Boy, Toews hasn’t been shy about dropping the gloves lately, has he?

This tweet says a lot too:
