Justin Bailey got his first NHL goal Tuesday in a 4-1 win over the New York Rangers.

"It was pretty blown up. I don't think it's been like that since I got drafted and since the day I got called up last year for the first time," Bailey said of his cell phone. "A lot of texts, real positive tweets and I appreciate all the support from everybody." He skated with Sam Reinhart and Evander Kane in the match and remained on that combination during Wednesday's practice. Bailey has one point in 12 career NHL appearances.

Justin Bailey has been returned to the minors.

He was up with the Sabres on Tuesday on an emergency basis because the team had a few game-time decisions, but Jack Eichel, Ryan O'Reilly and Brian Gionta were all able to play. Bailey was a healthy scratch as a result, but could be a possibility to play before the end of the regular season if Buffalo chooses to bring him back up on a regular recall.

He'll be in the lineup when the Sabres take on the Penguins on Sunday afternoon because Ryan O'Reilly is out with a lower-body injury. He's not worth adding in standard fantasy leagues.
