In which a 7-2 win over the Boston Bruins barely gets a mention.

Islanders Anxiety Art

Mike and Dan are in much better moods after the Islanders shut out the Penguins for the first time since Eddie Murphy had a hit single.

They talk about the team’s huge bounce back win after a disappointing overtime loss on Saturday and their propensity for coming up big in big moments, despite what the models might say. Later, they look ahead to a week that features three games against the Buffalo Sabres, a franchise that’s falling apart at the seams.

Along the way they discuss Oliver Wahlstrom’s emergence, the “operatic” Ilya Sorokin, Devils goalies of yesteryear and fluffy-haired fighter pilots of 1986.

Closing Song: “Party All The Time” by Eddie Murphy. This video is ludicrous. My goodness.
