RALEIGH Aleksander Barkov Jersey , N.C. (AP) — The Carolina Hurricanes are bringing the Lambeau Leap to their hockey rink.Their post-victory parties have gone viral : After each win on home ice, they’ve skated en masse down the ice and jumped into the glass.Consider it the latest sign that this isn’t the same team that has missed the playoffs an NHL-worst nine straight years.“Instead of the standard, everybody goes to center ice and holds their stick up, we’re trying something new,” veteran winger Jordan Martinook said. “I think we had fun with it, and I think the fans liked it, so just keep an eye out on those. We might change it up, stick with that one, who knows?”They call it the “Storm Surge,” and they’ve already done it twice to rave reviews from the fans who stuck around after the final horn.It debuted following Carolina’s 8-5 victory over the New York Rangers on Sunday night. After the buzzer sounded, the team lined up along one blue line and clapped their hands over their heads while DJ Khaled’s “All I Do is Win” played over the arena’s sound system.Then they skated the length of the ice, with each player taking a playful leap into the boards as the fans cheered. Video of the celebration caught fire on social media seemingly as quickly as the players bounced off the Plexiglas.The encore came Tuesday night after beating Vancouver 5-3, but this time, as his teammates lined up, Micheal Ferland skated to center ice and led the claps before everyone skated down the ice and jumped into the glass.“We looked at it, and they’re fine-tuning it,” first-year coach Rod Brind’Amour said Evgenii Dadonov Jersey Kids , adding that Ferland “had a little issue with the beat. But again, that’s something that they’ve created, and hopefully they enjoy it and the fans enjoy it.”New captain Justin Williams was the one who came up with the idea, Martinook said.“Once he mentioned it, everyone was pretty excited and ready to run with it,” Martinook said.They know the celebration needs some fine tuning, and the best way to get it right it is by continuing to win — and to have a good reason to do it again.“I think we’ve got to get our tempo better and in sync,” rookie forward Warren Foegele deadpanned.So far during the young season, they certainly have been in sync on the ice.They’re only a week in, but they entered Wednesday night’s games with an Eastern Conference-best seven points.Their 3-0-1 record is the franchise’s best since it relocated from Hartford to North Carolina in 1997, and the last time they opened a season by earning points in four straight games was in 1994 — when they started 4-0-1 and were still known as the Whalers.During their current three-game winning streak, they’ve outscored their opponents by a combined 16-9.For a team with a young core — key players Sebastian Aho, Martin Necas and Andrei Svechnikov were all born after the Whalers skated for the final time in Hartford — they’re determined to keep the focus on having fun and not on the pressure of trying to snap the NHL’s longest postseason drought.“It’s fun, right?” Foegele said. “High-scoring games, a bunch of young guys in here keeping it young, too. The group’s been good, and that’s what you want to see.” RALEIGH , N.C. (AP) Bill Peters has not been able to lead the Carolina Hurricanes back to the NHL playoffs and after coming up short following his fourth season with the club, announced Friday that he is resigning.”I feel like this is a good time to move on,” Peters said in a statement issued by the team, ”and I am looking forward to my next challenge.”Peters went 137-138-53 in his lone head coaching job in the NHL. He had one season left on the contract extension he signed in 2016.New team owner Tom Dundon said he has ”a lot of respect for Bill as a person and coach.”The move leaves the Hurricanes looking for a new general manager and head coach. Hall of Fame player Ron Francis was reassigned to another front-office position during the season.”I feel the incoming general manager should have the ability to hire his own head coach,” said Peters, who was hired by Francis in 2014.The 53-year-old Peters figures to be a candidate for other openings around the league – including a team in his home province.The Calgary Flames fired Glen Gulutzan earlier this week after missing the playoffs in his second season. Peters is a native of Three Hills, Alberta, who played college hockey in that province at Red Deer College under coach Mike Babcock – who eventually hired him as an assistant with the Detroit Red Wings.Peters left the Red Wings’ staff four years ago to take his first NHL head coaching job with Carolina, but was unable to end the team’s playoff drought, which at nine years is one of the longest in NHL history.The Hurricanes have made the postseason just once since winning the Stanley Cup in 2006, and just twice in 15 seasons. This will be their third coaching change since their last playoff appearance in 2009.Expected to be a playoff team this season, Carolina finished 14 points out of a postseason spot and in sixth place in the eight-team Metropolitan Division.There’s been plenty of change over the past four months for the Hurricanes, who will have turnover in three key spots on the organizational roster.Longtime owner Peter Karmanos Jr. sold the majority interest in the team to Dundon in January, and the Dallas billionaire shook things up when he reassigned Francis to the role of president of hockey operations. The new GM will report directly to Dundon.Peters’ frustration became evident following a critical 3-1 loss to San Jose in February that cost them a chance to move into playoff position. After that game, Peters called his team out, repeatedly using the word ”disappointing” while promising lineup changes that ultimately never came.—
