The Blackhawks know a thing or three about winning championships, especially snapping a lengthy title drought.
Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook helped the Blackhawks break through in 2010, bringing Chicago its first Stanley Cup in the last 49 years at the time, and now they're looking to bring some positive luck to the North Side.
To show their support for the Cubs, who are looking to do the same (only 108 years), the three Blackhawks captains attended Game 2 of the NLCS between the Cubs-Dodgers and helped fire up the Wrigley Field crowd by yelling the traditional, "Play ball!" and singing the Seventh Inning Stretch.
Here are a few pictures below from their visit:
Uncap those markers and start circling your calendars, Blackhawks fans. The 2018-19 season is officially out.
