Blackhawks' Seabrook says Torres hit him in head

CHICAGO (AP) - Brent Seabrook says he's OK after a hard hit from Vancouver's Raffi Torres.

But after watching replays, the Chicago Blackhawks defenseman said it was obvious Torres drove him to the ice with a hit to the head during Game 3 of the first-round series. In his first game back after a four-game suspension, Torres was called for interference and did not draw a major penalty.

The Canucks are in control with a 3-0 lead, threatening to sweep the defending Stanley Cup champions out of the playoffs. They play again Tuesday night in Game 4 at the United Center.

Vancouver's depth and physical play have been major factors in the series. So has Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo, who helped turn away five of Chicago's seven power plays in a 3-2 win Sunday night.
