Hurricanes' Thor Storm Surge

WSH@CAR: Hurricanes celebrate Thor style

The Hurricanes celebrate their win against the Capitals by summoning the power of Thor in their latest Storm Surge

  • 00:45 •

Brock McGinn's Thor hammer made its triumphant return Saturday.

The Carolina Hurricanes forward once again led an epic post-win Storm Surge celebration by laying the hammer after their 6-4 win against the Washington Capitals.

You might remember McGinn's first Thor-style celebration from Carolina's win against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Jan. 4. McGinn again stood in the middle of a circle as he led his Carolina teammates and the crowd at PNC Arena in the Skol clap.

But in the new-and-improved version, as McGinn dropped the hammerm, the on-ice projection made the ice appear to crack as a spotlight came down on him then panned to the crowd as his teammates hit the ice in unison.

McGinn's original Thor hammer came in Carolina's first home win of 2019, but the Hurricanes will have one more game at PNC Arena before the calendar changes, against the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday.
