Braden Holtby asked Dallas Green for a private recording of ‘The Girl’ to surprise and thank his wife Brandi
Two weeks ago, Jeff Marek and Elliotte Friedman interviewed Canadian singer-songwriter Dallas Green of the band City and Colour on their podcast, 31 Thoughts.
Green talked about his friendship with Braden Holtby and told a story about the time he went to see Holtby play with the Capitals against Nashville.
“I don’t know if he’d like me telling this story,” Green said, “but I’ll tell it anyway.”
Holtby let in six goals and got pulled in the middle of the second period. After the game, Green went down to visit his friend and the Capitals netminder shrugged off his performance, saying “Ah that’s hockey. You win some, you lose some.”
According to Friedman, Green added that there was “a better story about their friendship, but we’d need Holtby’s permission to tell it.”
Friedman got that permission.
