Islanders Anxiety Art

Mike and Dan remain amazed at Ryan Pulock’s last second save to preserve the Islanders’ Game 4 win as they recap that game and Games 2 and 3.

They talk extensively about the rollercoaster ride of the last four seconds of a game in which the Islanders played 57 great minutes and three bad ones, and how quickly the Lightning can turn a game in their favor. They also recount the ways in which Pulock’s actions transcended hockey and the Islanders’ generally small sphere of notice.

Later, Mike tells the tale of how he met Islanders legend John Tonelli at Saturday night’s game and gets the scoop on one of the most famous photographs in team history - the legendary Bryan Trottier double middle fingers pic.

Finally, they talk about the rash of celebrity sightings at Nassau Coliseum in these playoffs and which celebs are welcome (Ralph Macchio, Susan Lucci) and which aren’t (looking at you, Jimmy Fallon).

Shout out jbotte on his amazing BATTLE LEVEL for Saturday’s game.
