Islanders v Canucks 3 takeaways from OT loss: Josh Bailey elite
Josh Bailey: Elite
Josh Bailey is back to his elite ways for the New York Islanders. With the primary assist on Michael Dal Colle‘s goal in the first period, Bailey now has eight points through his last eight games.
It was some pass from Bailey, watch it here:
With that helper, Josh Bailey now has eight points over his last eight games. After only putting up a single point over a 12 game stretch leading up to this current eight-game stretch it’s great to have Josh Bailey back.
If the Islanders are to have any hope of holding off the three teams chasing them in the Metropolitan Division, they’ll need their top six players to start contributing like top-six players.
That includes Josh Bailey.
Ideally, we’ll see Barry Trotz get Josh Bailey on the ice with Anders Lee. The two of them have some well-documented chemistry together.
For now, Josh Bailey is back to his point-per-game ways. I feel bad for those who just can’t get off the “Josh Bailey is bad” bus.
