Islanders Anxiety Art


In an uncharacteristically effusive episode, Mike and Dan are joyful as the Islanders clinch a playoff berth with a huge win over Buffalo following an equally huge win in Winnipeg.

They praise Brendan Burke calling out some pessimistic preseason predictions, Robin Lehner swearing in front of 13,000 people and Barry Trotz being Barry Trotz. They also revel in the glory of proving the doubters wrong (including themselves) before taking a look at another game against the Maple Leafs and the loss of center Tanner Fritz.

Also, Andy Hilbert is mentioned yet again.
