The Carolina Hurricanes aren't just rolling, they're rowing.

The team switched up its home celebration, opting to not go the length of the ice to the glass, but reversing at the red line and sliding along the ice while using their sticks as oars to power imaginary rowboats.

No, we don't know what it means either, but it looks like a lot of fun. You'd be hard pressed to find a team anywhere having more fun than the Hurricanes these days.

And it's not just rowing. Defenseman Dougie Hamilton is flossing.

All the fun is coming with the approval of team owner Tom Dundon.

Hamilton is also poking at his teams goalies with umbrellas during interviews. He has a history of messing with goalies, of course.

But they aren't only rowing and flossing and having fun. They are winning. The Hurricanes currently sit atop the Metropolitan Division with 13 points and a 6-3-1 record.

Long live fun.
