So who was this brave Caniac? ABC11's Mark Armstrong took to Twitter and summoned the forces of social media to help.
The next morning, courtesy of Hurricanes broadcaster Mike Maniscalco, the Caniac in the photo turned out to be Canes color analyst Tripp Tracy's mother!

Tripp Tracy’s mom. No joke. How amazing is that haha. https://t.co/ja7oo82Kva
Marilyn Tracy, her daughter and grandson booked what they thought was a regular flight to Raleigh. It sure didn't turn out that way.
Tracy was thrilled to represent the Canes, and it made the trip all the more special.
And as the finale - here’s Tripp’s mom Marilyn pretending to KO the Bruins mascot 😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/yowjPC2elG— Mark Armstrong (@ArmstrongABC11) May 14, 2019
