Video: Bryan Bickell goes knee-on-knee with Vladimir Sobotka

ST. LOUIS, MO - APRIL 19: Bryan Bickell #29 of the Chicago Blackhawks trips as he attempts to pass the puck against the St. Louis Blues in Game Two of the First Round of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs at the Scottrade Center on April 19, 2014 in St. Louis, Missouri.

Things started going awry for the Chicago Blackhawks late in the third period when Bryan Bickell was called for going knee-on-knee against St. Louis Blues forward Vladimir Sobotka.

Bickell’s hit put Sobotka down on the ice for a few moments before he got up and headed to the bench. It was just 1:14 later that Brent Seabrook delivered a shot to the head of Blues captain David Backes and led to a five-minute major for charging and ultimately the tying goal with six seconds left by Vladimir Tarasenko.

While everyone will rightfully recall the Seabrook hit, it was Bickell who got the bad vibes started with his questionable hit on Sobotka.
