Coach and former team captain Rod Brind'Amour has explained why the organization has started with their post-game celebration.

As the Hurricanes have landed themselves in the middle of hot water with hockey icons such as Don Cherry and Brian Burke for their post-game antics, that didn't stop them from celebrating and Storm Surging after Monday's win. However, coach Rod Brind'Amour explained the team's motivation surrounding the celebration.
Canes coach Rod Brind'Amour defended the postgame celebrations at some length today. Said it was a different way of thanking the fans and "trying to provide a little levity to a pretty serious game, ACC Sports' Chip Alexander stated as he took to Twitter.
 Or to put it more simply.
It's FUN, people, Brind'Amour told Sara Civ of the Athletic.
  It's clear that the Storm Surge may be over the top for some fans or even 'douchebaggy' for others, but one thing that's pretty clear is that the players are just happy to be playing the game, and they clearly aren't letting anyone take their fun away.
