David Backes’ boarding hit on Rene Bourque

6 Comments

David Backes avoided league discipline stemming from the hits/fight/general chaos he took part in against the Chicago Blackhawks. Will he find himself on the wrong side of the law this time around, though?

The St. Louis Blues’ snarly captain received a two-minute boarding penalty for his questionable check on Rene Bourque.

Video’s available in the clip above.

So, what do you think? Is the two-minute penalty enough, or should the league make him sit out a game or more?

The Blue Jackets ended up winning the game 3-1.
