Islanders Anxiety Art

Mike and Dan talk about the Islanders losing the first two games of the Eastern Conference final in two hard to watch ways.

One was a blowout and one was a late stunner but in between was bad body language, Globetrotter stuff, great plays, bad hits and the most expensive shift the Islanders have had in years. They talk about players like Matt Martin, Brock Nelson and Victor Hedman making huge impacts, images that have been seared in their minds and goofball celebrations.

Later, they talk about possible and expected lineup changes for both teams ahead of Game 3 and a strange Islanders career that may be at an end.
