The Carolina Hurricanes won the battle against the New York Rangers, sweeping “Blue Shirts” in Game 3 to reach the Stanley Cup Playoffs
Sebastian Aho scored twice and tallied one assist in the 4-1 victory.
“It’s a special group we have,” Carolina coach Rod Brind’Amour told NHL.com. “We need everyone, and they understand that, and everyone’s contributing right now. And that’s why we’re still playing.”
The victory at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto of course didn’t include the Hurricanes celebrating with their fans.
The now classic “Storm Surge” however, made a comeback in a whole different way.
When winning against the Hurricanes on the road in February, forward Brendan Lemieux taunted the Hurricanes by performing the Storm Surge in front of the Carolina bench.
This time, the Hurricanes got their revenge through social media, giving it back to Lemieux.
When last nights game was over, the twitter page of the Hurricanes simply had one small video to show its fans.
Brendan Lemieux was suspended by the NHL for the first two games of the series against Carolina because of an illegal check on Colorado forward Joonas Donskoi in March.
His comeback probably didn’t end as he would’ve wanted it to, especially because of the Carolina taunt post game.
