WARNING: CONTAINS SOME COARSE LANGUAGE. PARENTAL DISCRETION ADVISED.
Mike and Dan dissect all the frustrating ways in which the Islanders have found themselves down 2-0 in their playoff series against Carolina.
They talk about the bad luck and missed opportunities that have plagued the Islanders so far, and how the move to Barclays Center has made things feel much worse for both players and fans. They also hash out some conspiracy theories, speculate on referee mind control and look at what avenues the team can use to get back into the series.
- Arthur Staple on the breakdown in the overtime of Game 1 and the bad luck in Game 2.
- Cary’s tweets from after Game 2 puts the Islanders situation in numerical perspective.
- Former referee Kerry Frasier on the critical whistle in Game 2:
Stopping the play was not a good idea. Had the puck entered the net review would have detected it & clock could then have been reset to time of goal. Potential Islander scoring play was killed with the whistle.— Kerry Fraser (@kfraserthecall) April 28, 2019
