Islanders Anxiety - Episode 125 - Having a Blast

There’s a lot more to this than meets the eye.

Islanders Anxiety Art

Mike and Dan discuss the Islanders taking a 3-0 lead over the Capitals in their playoff series and players enjoying life in The Bubble.

They talk about the Islanders’ consistency through the early part of the tournament and under-the-radar talent, the performance of captain Anders Lee, and a single tenacious shift in Game 2 that they won’t forget. Later, they look at things from a Caps fan perspective and what they must be feeling right now.

Finally, they lament the idiocy of Boston sports voices, teams collecting stars and coaches that look like they do.
