Hurricanes Surge, do the Conga

SJS@CAR: Hurricanes conga in latest Storm Surge

The Hurricanes celebrate their shootout win against the Sharks by starting a conga line in their latest Storm Surge

  • 01:00 •

The Carolina Hurricanes couldn't control themselves any longer.

They had to come on, baby, do the conga.

The latest Storm Surge, after a 3-2 shootout win against the San Jose Sharks on Thursday, was inspired by Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine.

Following the customary Skol Clap, the team went for a full-on conga line as the 1986 hit song "Conga" blared throughout the PNC Arena sound system.

Forward Andrei Svechnikov, who scored the game's first goal and then the shootout winner, led the line.

Sure, the it had some breaks and Stormy the mascot was a little late to the party and wiped out trying to catch up, but hey, what's a party without some shenanigans?

If the question you have is "why?" We would only like to respond, "Why not?"
