Islanders Anxiety Art


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.
