Mike and Dan talk about the games against the Bruins and Blue Jackets, but focus on the many aspects of the Islanders’ regular season return to Nassau Coliseum.
Mike tells us about his experience of going to the game and all the positive vibes he felt, while Dan wonders what it means for the team’s other home arena. Finally, they look ahead to games against the scrambling Penguins and stacked Jets, score some perfect music to mark the occasion of the Islanders’ night of pride, and discuss the man who may be the most photographed athlete of all time.
