PIT@CAR: Canes go duck hunting in latest Storm Surge

The Hurricanes celebrate their comeback 3-2 win against the Penguins by imitating the popular video game "Duck Hunt" in the latest Storm Surge

  • 01:12 •

The Carolina Hurricanes appropriately celebrated a shootout win with a "Duck Hunt."

The Hurricanes delivered another epic Storm Surge, this time with defenseman Justin Faulk and forward Micheal Ferland mimicking the classic Nintendo video game after their 3-2 victory against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday.

Ferland and Faulk sat in the camera well between the benches while their teammates led the crowd at PNC Arena in the customary Skol clap. The center-ice video board then switched to graphics from "Duck Hunt," an NES game that debuted in 1984.

Then the celebration really got good. The Carolina players, standing on each bench, began tossing their gloves in the air, and Ferland and Faulk pretend-shot at them at them using their sticks.

The "Duck Hunt" certainly is on the leaderboard for top Storm Surges of 2018-19. But with so many elaborate celebrations to choose from, it's hard to tell which is best.
