Blackhawks fever!

But one thing was for sure: The Chicago Blackhawks were offering the entire city positive energy in their chase for the Stanley Cup, and they brought it to Wrigley Field.

Last Tuesday, after they had made quick work of the San Jose Sharks, several of the players were at the game and chatted up Cubs left-hander Tom Gorzelanny.

In the stands (left to right) Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, Brian Campbell and Adam Burish, all sporting their playoff facial hair in true lumberjack style.
