CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

The Chicago Blackhawks are getting support for their Stanley Cup bid from the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

Famed Chicago Symphony Orchestra music director Riccardo Muti wore a Blackhawks jersey on Wednesday as he led the orchestra in a version of "Chelsea Dagger."

That's the song that the Blackhawks play at the United Center after every Chicago goal.

The performance was recorded and given to the team before Wednesday night's game against the Boston Bruins.

Orchestra members performed the Blackhawks tribute before rehearsing a piece by Verdi for an upcoming concert.
