Triangle Hockey Fans Looking Cool, Keeping Cool

— Flags, jerseys and face paint are not the only ways fans of the Carolina Hurricanes can wear the team colors during the Stanley Cup finals.

Funky bracelets and necklaces are a new option for fans to show their team pride. The jewelry is made by two Raleigh women, including Kelle Brind'Amour, wife of Hurricanes center Rod Brind'Amour.

The women started making the jewelry for moms who wanted a fun way to wear their kids' names.

"Then the Canes got hot, and we upped our production and decided with all the female fans, we could come up with a feminine way to show their support, and so we've been making Hurricanes bracelets," Kelle Brind'Amour said.

The name of the company, Brins D'Amour, is French for Strands of Love.

Fans can check out the jewelry at the ESA during the Stanley Cup finals or can call (866) 466-6692 for more information.

Hockey fans trying to keep cool took advantage of the newest Goodberry's to show their team spirit.

Hurricanes fans were among those who showed up at the grand opening celebration Saturday.

Goodberry's is apparently caught up in the Hurricanes' quest for the Stanley Cup, as it featured frozen treats like Carolina Hurricanes Concrete and Stormy Sundaes.

Stormy, the Hurricanes mascot, made an appearance, to the delight of the kids.

The newest Goodberry's is located at the corner of Leesville Road and Interstate 540 in Raleigh.
