Josh Bailey scored 54 seconds into overtime to give the Islanders a win in their home opener on Sunday night against Anaheim.

Josh Bailey moved up to the first line late in Saturday's game.

Bailey replaced Jason Chimera on a line with John Tavares and Andrew Ladd as coach John Capuano is trying to get Ladd and Tavares, who are pointless in two games, going. Baily had only 32 points in 81 games so he isn't exactly first line material but Capuano is trying anything and everything after dropping the first two games.

Josh Bailey has yet to pick up a point and is a minus-four through the first two games of the playoffs.

It's not a good start at all for the former ninth overall pick in the 2008 Draft. "We’ve talked. He’s frustrated with his game," coach Jack Capuano said of Bailey. "I only know one way to get out of it, and that’s not to worry about anything else and to work. Have to be a relentless player; win your shift every time you’re on the ice. You do that as an individual, you make our team better." Bailey has been playing with Nikolay Kulemin and Brock Nelson but Capuano switched them up in the second period of Game 2.

Bailey has 11 goals and 27 points in 65 games this season, but he could see a spike in production if he continues playing with those two players.
