Islanders Anxiety - Episode 181 - A Stretch of Absolute Hell

It’s a long climb back in.

Islanders Anxiety Art

Mike and Dan sift through two more Islanders losses and process their frustrations over the postponements of at least two upcoming games.

They talk about how the injury and COVID situations have impacted the players on the ice, as well as the failures of execution that have led them to dropping eight straight games. They also weigh the knowledge that the team’s immediate future is very much hanging by a thread with the feeling that there are lights at the end of a very long tunnel.

Later, Dan recounts his first visit to UBS Arena and they look at some situations around the NHL where the light at the end of the tunnel might be raging dumpster fire on the tracks.
