The Chicago Blackhawks still have to win three more games before they lift the Stanley Cup, but Google has gone ahead and awarded them the championship already. 

Chicago won Wednesday's Game 1 against the Tampa Bay Lightning 2–1 with a third-period comeback. First, Teuvo Teravainen fired a shot past a screened Ben Bishop and into the top corner of the next. Then, Antoine Vermette capitalized off a turnover in the Tampa Bay zone. 

The Blackhawks have already won five Stanley Cups and a victory this year would give them their third championship in six seasons, so Google doesn't really have to give them any extra credit.
