Tony Twist on Brent Seabrook’s Hit on David Backes

Former Blues Player Tony Twist gives take on Backes hit

“What do I think?” asks former St. Louis Blues Left Winger Tony Twist.  “Well if that’s what they want to do then great I’m happy for you.  But it has no consequence or bearing in that locker room whatsoever.  Absolutely zero.”

Former St. Louis Blues bruiser Tony Twist was watching when Brent Seabrook delivered a crushing blow to blues captain David Backes.

“What I did see was a guy that had another player in his sights in a vulnerable position and he took full advantage of that,” says Twist.  “Instead of following through the hit chest to chest, when he hit he rolled and his head went the other way.  And I’ve played the game.  That to me is the gangster way of playing it off like it’s just a casual hit.  He knew exactly what he was doing.”
