Hurricanes to use 'Brass Bonanza' as goal song for Whalers Night
The most appropriate song for a night celebrating the Hartford Whalers will be played by the Carolina Hurricanes when they do just that later this month.
Carolina will don green Whalers uniforms for the home game, as it will on March 5 when it plays the Bruins in Boston.
The iconic instrumental was played at Hartford games when the team came on to the ice for warmups, and also when it scored.
It was one of the choices the Hurricanes gave when they asked fans to vote for this season's goal song, but it ultimately lost out to Petey Pablo's "Raise Up."
"Brass Bonanza" was used by the Whalers until 1992. The club relocated to Raleigh, N.C. and became the Hurricanes in 1997.
