    Islanders' Josh Bailey: Nets two goals in loss

    Bailey scored twice -- including once on the power-play -- during Tuesday's Game 3 5-4 loss to the Lightning. The 26-year-old finally made it onto the scoresheet in the second-round matchup with Tampa. He was very solid Tuesday, taking five shots on goal and taking two PIM. While Tuesday's performance was a big one, fantasy owners shouldn't get too excited. Bailey isn't a big scorer and only had four multi-point games during the regular season.

    Islanders' Josh Bailey: Will suit up for Game 3

    Bailey (undisclosed) will suit up for Game 3 on Tuesday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports. Bailey will hit the ice for the first time since Isle's series-clinching victory on April 25--bumping fellow forward Ryan Strome from the lineup. He was a moderate offensive producer during the regular season, tallying 12 goals and 20 assists. The 26-year-old left winger will most likely slot in on the third line as he transitions back into the fast pace of the playoffs.

    Islanders' Josh Bailey: Probable for Tuesday's Game 3

    Bailey (undisclosed) left morning skate early, making him likely to play Game 3 against the Lightning on Tuesday night, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports. Given that Bailey's been on the ice for two seconsecutive days -- including Monday's full practice -- there's good reason to believe that he'll indeed suit up Tuesday night. Assuming that holds true, look for Ryan Strome to get bumped from the lineup. Bailey found the back of the net 12 times in the regular season but has managed just a single assist for his lone point this postseason -- his egnimatic ways can be maddening for fantasy owners.

    Islanders' Josh Bailey: Skating Sunday

    Bailey (undisclosed) could return to practice soon depending on how he feels after skating Sunday, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports. The 26-year-old forward missed out on the Isles' first two games of their series with Tampa Bay, but appears to at least be making progress toward a return at some point in the season. A further update on Bailey's status should be given after Monday's practice.

    Islanders' Josh Bailey: Not on trip to Tampa

    Bailey (undisclosed) did not travel with the Islanders to Tampa Bay. The news essentially rules him out for Game 1 and more than likely Game 2 as well. It's an unfortunate start to the series for the Islanders, who will be without a 32-point scorer for the start of the second-round series against a high-powered Lightning club. The team should update his status further when he closes in on a return but there's no official timetable at this point.

    Islanders' Josh Bailey: Leaves series clinching game early

    Bailey left the game Sunday before the end of the first period with an undisclosed injury, Brian Erni of Islanders Point Blank reports. The Islanders did not feel the need to update his status after the game Sunday and Bailey should have at least three days off to prepare for the their second round matchup versus Tampa Bay. Bailey has been almost invisible the entire season (12g, 20a) so his loss is far from an impactful one should his injury be more serious than expected.

    Islanders' Josh Bailey: Manages two assists in losing cause

    Bailey dished out two helpers in Friday's loss to the Lightning. The Islanders scored four goals on the night, but couldn't contain a Tampa Bay team that netted a season-high seven goals en route to their third straight victory. Bailey has put up 12 goals and 31 points in 72 games this season, which can be seen as a bit of a letdown. He had around 40 points in each of his previous two seasons, but he does have points in back-to-back games, so he could finish the season strong, especially if he continues playing on the top line with John Tavares.

    Islanders' Josh Bailey: Lifts team to victory

    Bailey scored the game-winning goal in OT and went plus-1 win on a 2-1 victory over the Flames on Thursday. After going 13 games without a goal earlier this year, Bailey now has four in his last 11 games. While he has certainly been having a rough season so far, the 26-year-old has managed to get back to the mid-15 minute range ice time he was averaging earlier in the season, showing that his coaches are more confident in his abilities again, as well. This stretch may have been just what the doctor ordered to get Bailey back on track.

    Islanders' Josh Bailey: Opens second half strong

    Bailey notched a goal -- his first since Dec. 21 -- and an assist Thursday in a 3-2 loss to the Capitals. He was a driving force behind the Isles' offense in this one, but it wasn't quite enough. Bailey's sprung out of the All-Star break with three points in two games -- quite the change of pace from the three points he'd collected in his previous dozen contests. The 26-year-old's ice time has fallen off recently, dropping into the mid-13-minute range from the approximately 16 minutes per game he was averaging for much of the season, but it's possible that Bailey could regain top-six ice time at the expense of Nikolay Kulemin if he can put a little hot streak together.
