After beating the Houston Astros 7-2 on Friday afternoon, the Chicago Cubs put on their Blackhawks jerseys and headed over to the United Center.

Cubs pitcher Ryan Dempster is a huge hockey fan, and he and his teammates were in a luxury suite to watch the Hawks take on the Nashville Predators in Game 1 of the postseason. Carlos Zambrano, Ryan Theriot and Carlos Marmol were among the players at the game.

Cubs manager Lou Piniella also was in attendance.
