Mike and Dan wrap up the Islanders victory over the Capitals and look forward to their second round series against the Flyers.
They talk about the stunning final numbers against Washington and how the Islanders responded to their loss in Game 4 with a complete game shutout. They then look at what to expect from Philadelphia and how the two teams compare to one another both currently and historically.
Along the way, they lament the lack of respect the Islanders have gotten throughout their time in the bubble and how saying teams didn’t want to be there isn’t the excuse people think it is.
- The Caps did not go through The fucking Island.
