Cue Brass Bonanza. For the third straight season, the Hurricanes are rocking a uniform based on their former franchise. That franchise is the Hartford Whalers. The iconic whale tail logo with the green, blue, and white color combo is a piece of hockey history. The Hurricanes have taken some major backlash for their rendition of the Whalers looks over these last three years.
The team didn’t let the criticism get to them tonight. They get off to a hot start right away and never look back. They defeat the Blackhawks by a score of 5-3. It always seems like they play lights out when dressed in Whalers gear.

The Hurricanes are 3-0-1 while wearing a Whalers jersey in a game. The only loss came to Boston two years ago. This team is feeling it right now and teams shouldn’t overlook this team. They are firing on all cylinders and have gotten some major production from their secondary scoring. Keep an eye on these Whalers. Wait, I meant Hurricanes.
