But do you wonder how other players in the NHL feel about it? Adam Lowry, at least, was having himself some fun at the Hurricanes’ expense. One of many scorers for the Jets in tonight’s 8-1 win, Lowry opted for a cheeky celly.
In case that wooshed over anyone’s heads, that’s the overhead clap that begins every Storm Surge celebration. Considering that the crowd at Carolina’s PNC Arena is highly familiar with that motion, this is just an incredible celly by Lowry. Guy is light years ahead.
Nothing wrong with poking some fun at the Hurricanes for being a bit over-the-top — that’s what you leave yourself open to when you’re being over-the-top — but we don’t see anything wrong teams having some fun, either.
The Storm Surge has been a thrill each night, getting more and more creative every time, and the Hurricanes even got legendary boxer Evander Holyfield to guest star after a recent win.
