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."

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.
