With the Caps and Canes playing a back-to-back home and home, Braden Holtby served as Philipp Grubauer’s backup at PNC Arena, Friday.
Unfortunately, due to Carolina’s benches not being wide enough, Holtby was unable to sit with his teammates.
Fortunately, it did yield this GIF.
Playing Eric Carmen’s version of All By Myself adds infinitely to the enjoyment of this article.
Here’s Braden straight chillin’.
Imagine sitting by yourself in a corner for 140 minutes. Sure, watching hockey from that close is fun, but that’s Holtby’s job for a living so it can’t be that fun. What could he be thinking about to pass all the time?
For the record, Holtby really knows how to rock his backup tendy gear better than Grubi.
