Stormy the Pig was all business in the front, but pure party in the back for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final.

The Carolina Hurricanes mascot became defenseman Dougie Hamilton's doppelganger by sporting a spectacular mullet before their conference final home opener against the Boston Bruins at PNC Arena on Tuesday.

Hamilton has been working on his mullet throughout the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but Stormy's hairstyle was new and a dramatic departure from his regular wispy tuft of black hair. They debuted their similar hair and continued their season-long routine of getting together before home games at PNC Arena.

Hamilton clearly has a kinship with pigs. Aside from his close friendship with Stormy, he gave a good luck pet to Hamilton the Pig, Carolina's alternate mascot for the Stanley Cup Playoffs, before taking the ice for the third period of Game 3.

Unfortunately for Stormy and the Hurricanes, the new do didn't bring luck to the team. Carolina lost 2-1 and fell behind 3-0 in the best-of-7 series.
