ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - Well, this escalated quickly.

Why just rub salt on an open wound when you can also make a few extra bucks in the process?

Some not-so-classy Chicago Blackhawks fans (or maybe anti-Blues folks) decided to capitalize on a recent story that an unknown member of the Blackhawks squad taunted David Backes after the Blues captain was hit with a vicious elbow by defenseman Brent Seabrook.

The 'Wakey, wakey Backes' taunt has been placed on a t-shirt at an online store.

Meanwhile, Seabrook was suspended three games for the hit. Backes' status for Game 3 remains up in the air.
