Islanders' Josh Bailey: Carries offense in Game 3 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey scored an even-strength goal and added a power-play assist during Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Hurricanes in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinals.

His second-period tally tied the score at 2-2 and briefly gave the Isles a flicker of hope before the 'Canes took control in the third. The points were Bailey's first of the second round, and he now has four goals and six points through seven postseason contests. The veteran winger may need to produce another big effort if New York is going to avoid getting swept Friday in Game 4.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Posts two points in Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey picked up a goal and an assist in a 3-1 victory against the Penguins during Game 4 on Tuesday. The Islanders swept the Penguins in the first-round series.

The 29-year-old beat the Penguins defense to a puck behind the Pittsburgh net late in the first period and set up Brock Nelson for the go-ahead marker. The goal gave the suffocating Islanders defense a lead it would not relinquish, and Bailey also scored an empty-netter to seal the series. Bailey posted three goals and four points in the sweep.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Plays hero in OT
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey scored the overtime winner during Wednesday's 4-3 victory over the Penguins in Game 1 of their first-round series.

The 29-year-old had a chance to win it in the dying seconds of the third period and rang his shot off the post, but Bailey made no mistake in extra time, burying the rebound after Mathew Barzal's backhand attempt also found iron. Bailey was on a roll to close out the regular season, scoring two goals and six points in the last eight games, and it looks like he's carried that momentum with him into the playoffs.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Ends scoring drought in style
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey scored two goals, including the game-winner, in Saturday's 4-2 victory over the Flyers.

The 29-year-old had gone 12 games without finding the back of the net before scoring twice in 83 seconds in the third period to put Saturday's game away. Bailey now has 16 goals on the campaign, leaving him two shy of last season's career high with seven games left on the schedule for the Islanders, and a Metropolitan Division title potentially within their grasp.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Scores fifth point in six games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey notched an assist for the second straight game, helping his team earn a 5-4 win over Ottawa on Tuesday.

Bailey won't do you any favors in plus/minus, where he's minus-3 over his past nine games, but he's doing something right on the stat sheet, scoring eight points in that stretch. He's now reached 50 points on the season and has another nice matchup coming up with the Senators on Thursday.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Snags assist in loss to Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey finished with a minus-2 rating but picked up an assist in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Flyers.

The Islanders' forward has points in four of the last five contests and after Sunday's helper, is up to 35 assists on the season to go along with 14 goals. A matchup with the Senators comes Tuesday, and Bailey, in the two teams' only other meeting, finished with two points, scoring a goal and adding an assist in a 6-3 win back on Dec. 28.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Finds twine versus Flames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey scored the Islanders' only goal in a 3-1 loss to the Flames on Tuesday.

The playmaker reversed roles, burying a pass from _ to even the score in the second period. Bailey has 47 points in 62 games this season, taking a step back from the near point-per-game pace he had last year. Bailey remains a good depth option in many fantasy formats, especially with nine points in his last nine games.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Notches helper Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey dished out his 33rd helper of the year in a 4-0 win over the Canucks on Saturday.

He also went plus-2 in the contest. Bailey has eight points over his last eight games, bringing him to 46 points in 61 outings. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, Bailey only gets second-unit time on the power play and doesn't play much of a physical game with 14 hits and 21 blocked shots for the season.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Six points in last five games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey set up two goals, including one on the power play, in Saturday's 5-2 victory over the Oilers.

It's his second consecutive two-point effort. The pride of Bowmanville has six points, including four helpers, in his last five games. Bailey is a key cog in the Isles' incredible, Metropolitan-leading run and he's back to delivering fantasy value for his owners following an early February slump. Use Bailey as you typically would.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Four points in last four games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey had a goal and an assist in a 3-0 victory over Columbus on Thursday.

Bailey is off his dream-season pace from last year, but he remains on target for 60 points. That would be the second-best output of his career, so we can all stop thinking that John Tavares created his production. Bailey has four points (two goals, two assists) in his last four games, and should be a mid-grade fantasy option, especially for helpers.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Special teams factor
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey drew an assist on Devon Toews' power-play goal as part of a 2-1 win over Minnesota on Sunday.

After logging 44 seconds on the power play in Saturday's game, it was encouraging to see Bailey play over four minutes (4:32) with the man advantage in Sunday's win. The assist gives him 40 points in 55 games this season, though Bailey's production is not what it was a year ago. He's averaging 0.72 points to this point in 2018-19, down from his 2017-18 mark of 0.93.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Dishes helper Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey registered an assist, two shots and won five of 10 faceoffs during Friday's 2-0 win over the Capitals.

Bailey is meshing well with Mathew Barzal on the second line, posting two goals and three assists over his last six games. The playmaking winger has regressed slightly after a 71-point campaign in 2017-18, but he's on pace for another 60-plus-point season so keep playing him as you normally would.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Ends goal drought against Sens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey scored a goal and added an assist in Friday's 6-3 win over the Senators.

The goal was his eighth of the season but first in 14 games, as Bailey has primarily been a facilitator of other people's offense in recent weeks. The winger still has a strong 30 points through 36 contests, and his chemistry with Mathew Barzal is allowing Bailey to prove that last year's 71-point breakout was no fluke.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Reaches 20 assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey set up Anthony Beauvillier's goal in the second period of Tuesday's 3-1 win over Arizona.

Twenty assists is a nice accomplishment for a player in any season, and Bailey is well set up for a year like he had two years ago, when he recored 43 assists and 56 points. He likely won't reach last year's totals, but he's emerged as a dependable point man for the Isles.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Dropped to third line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey will play on the third line Thursday versus the Penguins, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Bailey had been playing with Matthew Barzal and Anthony Beauvillier for most of the season, but will instead line up with Valtteri Filppula and Leo Komarov for the immediate future. According to head coach Barry Trotz, the move was made to balance out the scoring across all three lines, but fantasy owners will have a hard time seeing this move as anything but a demotion for Bailey.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Evolution is being televised
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Hurricanes.

Don't look now, but Bailey is chugging along at close to a point-per-game pace. He has seven goals and 14 assists in 22 games. And his plus-minus is a tidy plus-9. Last season, Bailey finished at minus-20. The evolution of his game continues. He deserves to be in the bright lights.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Nets pair in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey potted both New York goals in a 4-2 loss to the Lightning on Thursday.

Bailey scored on the game's first shot, spinning and scoring on Andrei Vasilevskiy less than four minutes into Thursday night's contest. He also added a marker in the third period that tied the game at the time. The 29-year-old has at least a point in nine of his last 10 games and now is at five goals and 17 points for the season.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Streak at eight games and 11 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey delivered two assists in Saturday's 3-0 win over New Jersey.

The helpers stretched his point streak to eight games and 11 points (two goals, nine assists). Bailey also leads the Isles in scoring with 15 points (three goals, 12 assists) in 13 games. The playmaker is delivering for fantasy owners who took a risk on him this season. Bailey is a must-start.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Extends point streak to seven
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey scored a shorthanded goal and added the lone shootout goal for either team in Thursday's 3-2 win over Pittsburgh.

Bailey also contributed three shots and a plus-2 rating, as he was arguably the best player for either side. His point streak now sits at seven games, and Bailey has 13 points (three goals) through 12 games. Owners who invested in Bailey after last season's career-best, 71-point campaign have been reaping the benefits of that decision.

Islanders' Josh Bailey: Collects two assists in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bailey had two assists in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Hurricanes.

That's back-to-back multi-point performances for Bailey, who has now put up seven points in his last five contests. The 29-year-old winger has played well this season despite reportedly playing through a nagging injury.
