Seabrook has his bell rung

CHICAGO - Brent Seabrook had to travel back in time to speak with reporters Sunday after Raffi Torres knocked him into the middle of next week.

He says it sure felt like a head shot, given that his head hurts, but he never saw it.

That much is obvious.

I havent seen it to be honest with you guys, said Seabrook, adding he did the concussion tests but never went to the quiet room. I felt it on my cheek and my ear, but I havent seen the hit so I cant comment on it.

(Torres) is a hard-nosed guy, he plays hard, hes been in trouble with the league before for doing the same kind of thing. Im going to leave it at that and let the league take a look at it. Whatever they do we have to deal with it.

The Canucks wouldnt let Torres speak with the media after the game, but the angles are apparently quite different from the Chicago and Vancouver benches because Vancouver thinks it was a good hit.

I understand where theyre going with this, said head coach Alain Vigneault. But hockey is still a physical game, a collision game. And each and every one of us wants it stay (that way) without players getting hurt. Because of the physicality of the game, there are always going to be some injuries out there.

I didnt think it was a penalty, but ... thats me.

Neither did Kevin Bieksa.

Its tough to see from the bench where the puck was, but from the way Seabrook was turning its tough to see if the puck was on his stick or just past him, I didnt see any problem with it.
