(HockeySTL) -- Besides the Blues winning in overtime Saturday, the biggest storyline coming out of Game 2 of the Western Conference Quaterfinals was the illegal hit Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook put on captain David Backes. And now a classless Blackhawks - or anti-Blues - fan is capitalizing.

The third period hit landed Seabrook a three-game suspension, and put Backes out for at least Game 3.

To make things even worse, Chicago's Duncan Keith was heard on the bench yelling "wakey wakey" to Backes as he was helped off the ice. 

Video of the comment, which can be heard at the 46-second mark above, has since gone viral. And now it's inspired a "Wakey, Wakey Backes" t-shirt, which is being listed online for $17 (Yes, $17).

It's just the latest, and certainly not the last, episode adding fire to the long-standing rivalry between the two teams.
