ANIMATED: Braden Holtby's Mom Might Be Cooler Than Him

Remember back in the Conference Semifinals, when Braden Holtby stared down a Rich Peverley taunt in the most bad ass of bad ass ways?

That was awesome. Not only did it one-up a player who was acting like kind of a jerk, it showed how calm and poised he is under the pressure. I mean, a flinch could have been embarrassing, but Holtby didn't budge.

Despite all that, though, his mom made an apparence on TV Wednesday evening. She's kind of the best.
