Mike and Dan are joined by Newsday Islanders beatwriter Arthur Staple to talk about the team's state going into their first round playoff series against the Florida Panthers. They also discuss the many voices picking against the Islanders and possible X-factors for the series, be they players, ice conditions or dozens of flying plastic rodents.
Your ears aren't deceiving you. Around the 40 minute mark, we had some technical issues and there are a few jumps in time.
Many, many thanks to Art for taking the time to talk with us. And thanks again to iTunes user ShootSpeed for a great review. I don't know if an "ExPat Brit" means you're a Brit living in the U.S. or an American living in England, but either way, thanks for listening and for reading Lighthouse Hockey. Yes, all hockey fans are this crazy.
You can find Islanders Anxiety on iTunes, Stitcher Radio, SoundCloud and pretty much any podcasting app out there. Please subscribe, download, rate, review or spread the word as best you can. All of it helps to raise the show's profile and maybe could get us a fancy sponsor to sell out to in the near future. And if you leave us an iTunes review, we might just read it on our next show.
Please let us know what you think in the comments. Thanks so much for listening and we'll be back in two weeks (or thereabouts).
