Islanders Anxiety - Episode 132 - A Forgettable, Unforgettable Game

The Islanders are still writing their story.

Islanders Anxiety Art

Mike and Dan recap the Islanders double overtime win over the Lightning in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final, and how Jordan Eberle’s shot changed everything for him this postseason.

They talk about the measured, cautious game both teams played, the surprising lineup decisions, the moments of pure dread and how the Islanders decided that their story had not finished being written yet. Later, they discuss the bizarre narratives that people have tried to hang on the Islanders and the way the real stories are being ignored.

They end by talking about hearing weird broadcasters talk about the Islanders for the first time... maybe ever. Special appearance by Elvis the Dog.
