The Blackhawks trail the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Stanley Cup Final.
But Vince Vaughn believes the good guys have a certain intangible that Tampa Bay can't match.
"This has been a great series," Vaughn told CSN prior to Game 4, "but there's a lot of hockey left, and Chicago has a big, big heart."
The Chicago native actor/comedian made headlines earlier in the day for picking up a dinner tab for Lightning head coach Jon Cooper and staff.
So, with Vaughn in town and certainly showing the love for his hometown Blackhawks, it was only fitting that he showed up for Wednesday's Game 4.
"It's great to be back here. This has been a great series. It was pretty important for me to get a chance and come. It's been a great team," Vaughn said. "It's been great to see them rally; that Anaheim series was unbelievable and now we're in a dogfight with Tampa Bay, so I'm here to support the local guys."
What advice does Vaughn have for Blackhawks fans nervous about Game 4 and the rest of the series?
"I'm excited. Let's go have some fun. I think let's just go out there and play our game, have a good time. Nothing to think about. Just play like it's Opening Day. Be excited," he said. "I love Coach Q, he always does a good job, been a great group of guys so I'm just excited for the puck to drop."
