After his team’s scheduled game for Monday night against the Cleveland Indians was rained out, Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo was spotted at Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

The Chicago Blackhawks are looking to clinch Lord Stanley’s Cup for the first time on home ice since 1938, up three games-to-two on the Tampa Bay Lightning heading into Monday’s pivotal showdown.

The All-Star candidate was spotted in his red Blackhawks jersey and a Cubs hat and the Hawks put him up on the video boards in the Madhouse on Madison.

During a rain delay at Wrigley Field earlier this week, the Cubs played the Blackhawks’ Game 5 win on the road, prompting cheers from those who waited out the weather at the Confines.

This isn’t the first time Rizzo has been spotted at the United Center backing the Hawks – nor is it the first time the Cubs, as a whole, have stood behind Coach Q and Chicago’s beloved Blackhawks.

The team posed with personalized hockey jerseys late last month as the Hawks began their postseason push, promoting city unity – something that has always been big under first-year Cubs skipper Joe Maddon.

Halfway through the second period on Monday night, there was no score between the Blackhawks and Lightning. For the latest updates, be sure to check out the FanSided site dedicated to all things Chicago Blackhawks – Blackhawk Up.
