They review the penalty-filled game that the Islanders dominated at 5-on-5, Anders Lee’s hit on Niklas Backstrom and what the Islanders should expect in Game 2. They also talk about yet another first overall pick finding his way into the Metropolitan Division, the NHL’s refusal to highlight more than a handful of players at once and - yes - how it all affects the Maple Leafs.
Finally, they dunk on Mike Milbury - former Islanders GM, current television analyst and a man who seems to absolutely despise the sport of hockey.
