BOSTON (AP) — The father of a missing boy whose body was found off a Massachusetts highway says he was crushed to hear that his 5-year-old son's remains had been identified but is planning his funeral.
Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook was banned for three games on Sunday for a hit that levelled St. Louis forward David Backes the night before. The NHL said that Seabrook was suspended "for interference and charging" against Backes in game two of their NHL Western Conference first-round playoff series. The play came late in the third period of Saturday's game when Seabrook, skating at near full speed, checked Backes, his shoulder making contact with the Blues captain's head and sending him into the corner boards head-first. At the time, the Blackhawks had the lead, but Seabrook's ejection with 4:15 left in regulation proved costly and the Blues went on to win 4-3 in overtime and take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.
