It seems like Chicago is in the throes of Blackhawks fever, even sportscasters and reporters.

Let's add the Chicago Symphony Orchestra to the mix. On Wednesday musical director Riccardo Muti and his musicians decided to cover "Chelsea Dagger," the song by The Fratellis that's played at the United Center after every Blackhawks goal and win. Muti even follows in the footsteps of NBC 5's Natalie Martinez and dons a Jonathan Toews sweater while conducting the orchestra.
