The Chicago Blackhawks know what it’s like to celebrate a championship, so they made sure to offer some love to their baseball buddies, the Cubs.
Prior to their contest against the Dallas Stars at the United Center on Sunday, the Blackhawks honored the Cubs, who defeated the Cleveland Indians this past Wednesday to win the franchise’s first World Series since 1908.

Jason Heyward, Kyle Schwarber, and Mike Montgomery brought out The Commissioner’s Trophy and waved the W before the game, as well.

Perhaps the Cubs can repay the favor if the Blackhawks, who’ve started the season 8-3-1, manage to win their fourth Stanley Cup since 2009-10.
Chicago has won six Cups in team history.
