The Carolina Hurricanes find themselves in a must-win situation as they head into Game 6 of their first round series against the Washington Capitals trailing 3-2 in the series.

Good news for the Hurricanes, their good luck charm Hamilton will be inside the arena for the game.

Hamilton the pig became a viral sensation in the hockey community after he became a hit during the Hurricanes’ pre-game tailgate for games 3 and 4, but had to head home for the games since pigs aren’t allowed in the arena.

However, that’s all going to change on Monday night as Hamilton will take in Game 6 from Section 108.

Not only will he be in attendance, but he got a full tour of the arena well before puck drop.

The Hurricanes will need to win the next two games if they want to advance to the second round for their first time in a decade.
