Islanders Anxiety - Episode 143 - Fun Boring Hockey

Whoever sculpted the hair really nailed it.

Mike and Dan talk about the Islanders’ return to form and point streak and later, chat about a special new Mat Barzal bobblehead figure.

They discuss the back-to-back wins against the Sabres, including Ilya Sorokin’s first career NHL win and shutout and how lineup changes have added hope for the future to the team’s already established structure. They also look ahead to the two games against the Penguins, and a chance to put a somewhat shaky rival on even more uneven footing, and lament the sad state of hockey media on both sides of the border.

Finally, they speak with Anthony Davino from FOCO, a collectables company with a new limited edition Mat Barzal bubble hockey bobblehead figure that you can pre-order today.
