When the Carolina Hurricanes win on New Year's Eve, you better beleive they are breaking out the party hats.

The Hurricanes latest "Storm Surge" involved the team donning "2020" glasses and party hats on top of their helmets while tossing out T-shirts to fans as "Auld Lang Syne" blared through PNC Arena.

The New Year's Eve party followed the traditional Skol Clap, which came right after a 3-1 victory against the Montreal Canadiens.

Prior to the game, Hamilton the Pig was also ready to party, donning a party hat.
