Josh Bailey Is Back (sorta)

With two points on the night including a goal, Josh Bailey now has four point in four games (1 goal, 3 assists).

We’ve often talked about Josh Bailey being lost out there on the ice, specifically since the All-Star break. But he’s still finding ways to get on the score sheet.

You can say it’s because he’s playing alongside Mathew Barzal all you want, but there’ve been other players on this roster that have played next to the reigning Calder Trophy champion and have not put points.

It’s not to say that Josh Bailey has been particularly good. Although points certainly help. Josh Bailey still has some work to do especially off the puck and on the power play.

But with four points in four games, Josh Bailey is now on pace to score 60 points this season. At this point of the year, you have to think that 60 point pace sticks.

It’s nice to have Josh Bailey producing again. God knows that the New York Islanders need more from their forwards.
