Cubs put Blackhawks' game on Wrigley video board during rain delay (VIDEO)

Chicago Cubs traditionalists have been complaining about the new video boards installed at Wrigley Field all season — feeling it takes away from the iconic look of the old ballpark. However, those video boards found some new fans Saturday night when the Cubs' game against the Cincinnati Reds went into a rain delay.

With the Chicago Blackhawks playing the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final at the same time, there was probably more then a few of the nearly 41,000 fans in the ballpark cursing in their beers about missing a pivotal NHL playoff game for a night of wet baseball.

But, luckily for them, the Cubs were ready.

The Wrigley crowd reacts to Chicago's go-ahead goal in the third period. They even blared the Blackhawks' goal horn in the stadium.

And to top it off later, Kris Bryant doubled and scored on Starlin Castro's walk-off single in the ninth inning to lift the Cubs to a 4-3 victory.

Who knew it was two-for-one night at Wrigley?
