Williams' bowling celebration

BUF@CAR: Williams, Canes celebrate win vs. Sabres

Following a 4-3 win against the Sabres, Justin Williams keeps up the Storm Surge with a game of bowling, using his teammates as pins

The Carolina Hurricanes got a W and then added an X.

The team continued their tradition of celebrating home victories in unison and this time they went with a classic.

After a win against the Buffalo Sabres, the Hurricanes lined up in bowling pin formation at center ice. Captain Justin Williams skated out in front of the formation and used his helmet as a ball to pick up a strike.

Extra points for forward Micheal Ferland, who wobbled a little bit before finally falling to complete the strike from Williams.

We don't know where the Hurricanes will go with their next celebration (curling? golf? badminton?) but we can't wait to find out.
