Gritty: Mascot, fun-lover, musical genius?

The Philadelphia Flyers mascot led members of the Philadelphia Orchestra in a rendition of the team’s goal song “Feel the Shake” by 80s hair band Jetboy.

Gritty put on his gameday best and led a socially distant number with Barbara Govatos (violin), Priscilla Lee (associate principal cello), Harold Robinson (principal bass), David Bilger (principal trumpet), Jeffrey Lang (associate principal horn), Matthew Vaughn (co-principal trombone), Carol Jantsch (principal tuba) and Christopher Deviney (principal percussion) jamming out.

The Flyers then made the original song play twice in their 2-0 victory against the Montreal Canadiens in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference First Round on Tuesday that gave them a 3-1 lead in the best-of-7 series.
