During a Hockey Night in Canada feature in the third period of Saturday’s game, Braden Holtby and his confidence level was compared and contrasted to Jonathan Bernier’s. The Leafs netminder, winless in 9 games (0-8-1), had a bad bobble during Tom Wilson’s second period goal. Meanwhile, zen-as-f-ck Braden Holtby was singing along to Cage The Elephant’s Mess Around during a commercial break like he didn’t have a care in the world.
Okay, this is very funny to me.
“[Holtby’s] got so much confidence,” Kelly Hrudey concluded. “Nothing’s phasing him.”
Cage The Elephant, a rock band out Bowling Green, Kentucky, is coming out with their fourth album, Tell Me I’m Pretty, Tuesday. The song Holtby was singing to is their new single. If you listen to DC101, you’ve likely heard it before.
