Islanders Anxiety - Episode 117 - This is Not Fun

It was, as the French say, “a real goddamn bummer.”

Mike and Dan struggle with the Islanders’ disastrous week and their inability to gain any space in their race for the playoffs.

They lament the “one mistake” that cost the team a golden opportunity in an overtime loss to the Carolina Hurricanes, which itself followed probably their two worst games of the season against the underwhelming Canadiens and Senators.

Later, they ponder lineup decisions for this season and the future, whether or not the freak injuries they’ve seen this season means the Islanders are actually cursed and Mike’s propensity for making charitable donations when he’s drunk.
