Mike and Dan air their Islanders grievances for the first time in a while, after the team’s six game winning streak was snapped this week.
They ponder what back-to-back bad games mean for the Islanders with games against the Rangers and league-leading Lightning on the horizon, but also look at some positives that the team still has going for it. They also examine why the Islanders loaned Josh Ho-Sang to Bridgeport and how it could hurt the team in their upcoming games. Finally, they give praise to Devon Toews, Brock Nelson and Robin Lehner, none of whom are probably included on any of The Athletic’s projected line ups for the 2020 World Cup of Hockey.
I’m not super happy with the audio on this one, so I recommend listening with headphones if you can to minimize dips. Had some computer and human issues going on.
