Islanders Anxiety - Episode 265 - A Couple Different Storms

This team does stuff to you.

Mike and Dan react to a wild week in which the Islanders won two of three on the road despite continuing their bad habits. Listen for a few important announcements as well.

After an excruciating, infuriating last second loss in New Jersey, the Islanders faced daunting games in Raleigh and Sunrise. They won both while still coughing up leads, failing to clear their own zone and generally playing like assholes. The points kept them afloat in the Eastern Conference, but remind the guys of other recent seasons that went off the rails thanks to similar play.

In the second half, they look ahead at what should be some winnable (?) games, and at the quiet excellence of Bo Horvat.
