Islanders Anxiety - Episode 221 - Timing is Everything

Sunday felt pretty good to be an Islanders fan.

Mike and Dan reflect on the Islanders’ resilient and timely four game winning streak - with a cathartic cherry on top.

They look back at wins over the Maple Leafs and Oilers, and how Ilya Sorokin staked his spot at the top of the goaltending heap while large swaths of the hockey world were watching. They then turn to a win over Columbus that could have gone off the rails after some curious officiating, and how Brock Nelson once again was the hero. Finally, it’s on to an eventful win over a pitiable Flyers team which featured momentum swings, sudden goals and some fighting that felt good for the soul.

In the second half, they look ahead at a Western Conference heavy upcoming schedule and a rematch against Philly that might get the Boss involved.
