Josh Bailey scored the lone goal for the Islanders on Saturday night in their 3-1 loss to the Canadiens.

Bailey scored a power-play goal late in the third period to ruin Carey Price’s shutout bid. Bailey has 15 goals and 37 points this season. Kyle Okposo, Frans Nielsen and Johnny Boychuk all finished with minus-three ratings. John Tavares had six shots on net.
Mar 14 - 10:16 PM

Josh Bailey recorded his 13th goal of the season in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Stars.

Bailey has been a very consistent scorer for the Islanders this season if we ignore the first two months of the campaign. Now that he has settled into his depth role, he has delivered enough production to make him roster-worthy in deeper formats. Anders Lee also scored the New York in the loss.
Mar 3 - 11:55 PM

Josh Bailey registered his ninth goal of the season as part of a 3-2 win over Edmonton Tuesday night.

Bailey's renaissance playing alongside John Tavares was short-lived and the depth forward was moved down the Islanders pecking order recently. Colin McDonald and Casey Cizikas also scored for the Isles in the win.
Feb 10 - 10:28 PM

Josh Bailey had an assist in a 4-2 loss to Florida on Wednesday.

Bailey has eight goals and 23 points in 38 games in 2014-15. He's not likely to do much better from a point-per-game perspective for the remainder of the season.
Feb 4 - 6:19 AM

Josh Bailey had three assists and was a plus-three on Friday.

Bailey has enjoyed his time on the top line this week as he has four assists in three games with Kyle Okposo and John Tavares. Bailey, a former ninth overall pick in 2008 has never had more than 38 points in a season, a feat he accomplished last season, but now has seven goals and 18 points in 32 games with a plus-eight rating. Should he remain on the top unit, get him and put him in your lineup.
Jan 17 - 9:07 AM

Josh Bailey will play left wing next to John Tavares with Kyle Okposo Saturday night against the Blue Jackets.

Bailey had an even strength goal Friday night in the Islanders' come-from-behind win over the Devils. He now has seven goals and 14 points in 29 games this season.
Jan 10 - 6:57 PM

Josh Bailey (upper body) will rejoin the Islanders on Friday.

Bailey missed Tuesday's game due to the ailment. Cal Clutterbuck is dealing with an upper-body injury now, so Bailey's return won't push a healthy player out of the lineup.
Jan 9 - 12:14 PM

Josh Bailey (upper body) was able to fully participate in Thursday's practice.

It remains to be seen if he'll be available for Friday's game. He missed Tuesday's contest, which provided Michael Grabner with an opportunity to reenter the lineup. It's possible that Grabner will be a healthy scratch if Bailey is available, but that's pure speculation at this point.
Jan 9 - 11:04 AM

Josh Bailey is dealing with an upper-body injury.

Bailey won't play on Tuesday and is day-to-day beyond that. He has six goals and 13 points in 28 contests in 2014-15. This is an opportunity for Michael Grabner as he would have otherwise had difficulty reentering the lineup after recovering from a lower-body injury.
Jan 6 - 3:28 PM

Josh Bailey scored a goal in a 5-2 victory against Winnipeg on Wednesday.

Bailey has six goals and 13 points in 26 contests in 2014-15. He can be counted on to maintain something close to that point-per-game pace this season.
Jan 1 - 9:17 AM

Josh Bailey will return to the lineup on Saturday night against the Blackhawks.

Josh Bailey has a nagging lower-body injury that will keep him out of Thursday's match against St. Louis.

Consider him day-to-day for now. He has recorded four goals and eight points in 18 games this year. Eric Boulton will draw into the lineup in Bailey's place.
Thu, Dec 11, 2014 02:54:00 PM

Josh Bailey scored his fourth goal of the season Tuesday, but the Islanders were upended by Minnesota by a score of 5-4.

Bailey had been held without a point for six straight games entering the contest so perhaps the tally will get him started on another hot streak. Michael Grabner, Brock Nelson and Matt Martin all found the back of the net in the defeat.
