Google prematurely deemed the Blackhawks Stanley Cup champs

If you're reading this and are a Blackhawks fan, make sure you have a large piece of wood nearby to knock on.

Google got a bit ahead of itself earlier today when it prematurely deemed the Hawks 2015 Stanley Cup Champions in the team's summary generated by a quick search of "Chicago Blackhawks." NBCSN shared the error, and it was promptly corrected.

Chicago stole the first game of the Stanley Cup Finals last night in Tampa Bay, and are still three victories away from claiming hockey's biggest prize. After trailing most of the game, the Hawks did what they do best. They netted two goals with less than seven minutes remaining and sent the Lightning home with their thumbs up their butts.

Google knows a lot of things, like where you live and what you order on your pizza. Hopefully the mishap doesn't jinx the Hawks and they're able to bring the Stanley Cup to Chicago for the third time in six years.
