Avoid Illegal Streaming of the Chicago Blackhawks

The initial appeal to watch the Hawks online for free may be tempting, but this is a bad idea. It’s illegal, is dangerous, pulls in viruses, and it doesn’t support the team either. Avoid illegal streaming of Chicago Blackhawks games. Support your team in an ethical manner.
