Islanders Anxiety Art

Mike and Dan examine the reality of the Islanders being up 3-0 in their playoff series with the Penguins and how grateful they, and presumably the rest of the fans, are to be in that position.

They discuss how all three games have played out both on the ice and off, including helicopter travel, crazy crowds, celebrity sightings, cult hero worship and painful hugs. Later, they lament some of the media coverage the Islanders have (or haven’t) received and set a new record of the amount of Weird Islanders mentioned in a single episode.
