Islanders Anxiety - Episode 161 - My Very Hoarse Friend

Lighthouse Hockey: for New York Islanders fans

1h 10min
This episode may contain explicit content.
With a raspy voice worn out from screaming, Mike and Dan discuss the Islanders eliminating the Bruins and facing the Lightning again in the semifinals. They talk about how the Islanders hung on for a win in Game 5 before kicking Boston’s ass in Game 6 at Nassau Coliseum, and how Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy poked Islanders fans with some bizarre ranting about refs, saints and respect. The victory is an instant favorite for both and a huge moment in the history of the franchise, as it continues to be re-written. Later, they look ahead to a daunting series against the defending Cup champion Lighting, coach John Cooper (who has definitely seen some New York Saints games at the Coliseum) and the differences between this season and their meeting last year in the bubble. Along the way they cover New Orleans funerals, tired narratives, being present in the moment and the importance of buying in. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
