The Hurricanes have gained popularity for their "Storm Surge" celebrations at PNC Arena in Raleigh, N.C. this season, much to the chagrin of legendary commentator Don Cherry. The long-time face of Hockey Night In Canada called Carolina's crew "a bunch of jerks" on Saturday night, and it didn't take long for the Hurricanes to respond.
Carolina released a new t-shirt on its team website on Sunday, with the phrase "Bunch of Jerks" emblazoned on the front. The shirt and dig at Cherry can be yours for just $32.
Check out Hurricanes' postgame celebration and Cherry's comments below:
The Hurricanes, who haven't reached the playoffs since 2009, will need to break out a few more celebrations to make the Eastern Conference playoffs. They enter Sunday night ninth in the East with 68 points, one back of Pittsburgh, Montreal and Columbus.
Carolina is on a 15–5–1 run since the calendar flipped to 2019, after falling to the bottom in December.
