Brent Seabrook said the best retribution against Vancouver Canucks pest Raffi Torres, who leveled Seabrook with a hit to the head Sunday, would be for the Blackhawks to win Tuesday night and send the Western Conference playoff series back to Vancouver. Strong performances by the Hawks' defensive corps — playing without Seabrook — helped make it happen. Brian Campbell and Duncan Keith scored 17 seconds apart in the second period. Keith, who called the questionable hit on Seabrook ''a cheap shot," also took a crack at Torres, receiving a cross-checking penalty in the first period. ''We had to do what we had to,'' Campbell said. ''Hopefully, Seabrook can get back soon. We're a better team with Brent in the lineup, but you move on. It's not like we can sit here and make excuses of him not being around. We've just got to keep going.'' A day after saying he felt good, Seabrook sat out with what were believed to be concussion-like symptoms — the result of Torres driving his shoulder into a puckless Seabrook's head in Game 2. He's officially day-to-day.
