Islanders Anxiety - Episode 116 - Not with a Bang, but a Rampage

Humbling is the word.

Islanders Anxiety Art

Mike and Dan talk about the Islanders’ demoralizing losses to the Blues and Bruins, the end of the Barclays Center era and the latest twist in the Josh Ho-Sang story.

They lament some shocking deflections, the lopsidedness of Leo Komarov versus Brad Marchand and the team’s failure to gain any ground while the rest of the Metro Division struggled.

Later, they recount Butch Goring’s number retirement ceremony and some opposition to it, talk about another Islander legend who could have his number in the rafters and make a plea for Brooklyn-based Islanders fans to continue to support the team as it moves back to Nassau County.

Forgot to mention: Dan will be on the Locked On Canadiens podcast with his friends Scott and Laura this Tuesday. Check it out. They talk mostly about the Islanders’ status these days on the ice and in their arena situation, and preview that night’s game against the Habs.
