Mike and Dan are FIRED UP and talking about the Islanders’ latest streak, their recent call-ups and a certain upcoming game in Toronto.
They detail the team’s recent road wins and look forward to more from Josh Ho-Sang and Devon Toews. They also get out the soap boxes for the Islanders’ upcoming game against former captain John Tavares and how it will be viewed by media and fans on both sides. Finally, they discuss who might be considered the new face of the Islanders’ franchise.
This week’s Moment of Trotz: “There are two kinds of players for me: hockey players and businessmen. Johnny was a hockey player on that play.”
