Video: Ott slams Keith with heavy hit along the boards

ProHockeyTalk

The heavy hitting between the Chicago Blackhawks and St. Louis Blues continues.

In the third period of Monday’s Game 3, Blues’ forward Steve Ott drilled Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith hard into the side boards. There was no call on the play.

Earlier in the game, Blues’ forward Maxim Lapierre was called for boarding when he slammed Blackhawks’ blue liner Sheldon Brookbank from behind into the end boards. This physical element in this series between two Central Division rivals wasn’t just restricted to the third game.

The Blackhawks were without defenseman Brent Seabrook, who was serving the first game of a three-game suspension for his high and late hit on Blues’ center David Backes in Game 2.

Keith is at the center of controversy for allegedly taunting Backes when he was struggling to his feet after the Seabrook hit.
