Bailey assisted on three of Kyle Okposo's four goals in Friday's win over the Penguins.

That's five points in four games for Bailey, who now has seven goals and 18 points in 32 games on the season, to go with a plus-8 rating. Skating on the top line, the 25-year-old hasn't gone two straight games without a point since early December. Despite missing time with injury, Bailey is still on pace for a career-high 40 points. He's a solid play in some deeper leagues.

Bailey picked up an assist in Saturday's win over the Blue Jackets.

Bailey's assist came on a goal by Kyle Okposo, with whom the forward saw top-line time Saturday. The favorable arrangement next to Okposo and John Tavares could continue for as long as Mikhail Grabovski remains unavailable with a lower-body injury.

Bailey (upper body) will return to the lineup Friday against the Devils.

Bailey was held out Tuesday night against Vancouver due to the injury, but it apparently wasn't anything overly serious, given his quick return. He'll swap in for Cal Clutterbuck, who appeared to suffer an upper-body injury of his own in Tuesday's contest.

Bailey (undisclosed) will not play Tuesday against the Canucks.

Coach Jack Capuano declined to provide a reason for keeping Bailey out of Tuesday's lineup, but it's likely that he's dealing with some sort of injury, as he wasn't even present at the team's morning skate. Michael Grabner (lower body) will come off IR to fill out the Isles' forward ranks.

Bailey picked up two assists in Saturday's shootout defeat to the Sabres.

Bailey saw only 13:14 of action Saturday, but with most of it coming on the top line with Kyle Okposo and John Tavares, he was able to make good use of it. The Islanders have tried out a number of players at the left wing spot on the top line this season, but coach Jack Capuano has yet to permanently settle on a player. Bailey's performance Saturday would seemingly aid his chances at getting a longer look in the role.

Bailey (lower body) will return to the lineup Saturday against the Blackhawks, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

Bailey will replace Eric Boulton in the lineup after missing Thursday's game due to the lower-body ailment. The winger has four goals and eight points over 18 games on the season.

Bailey will miss Thursday's game against the Blues due to a nagging lower-body injury, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

The injury is almost certainly related to the foot ailment that kept Bailey out of the lineup for a game last week. It sounds like something Bailey may have to battle with for a little while, which could force him to hit the press box with more regularity. Eric Boulton takes his spot in the lineup Thursday.

Bailey (foot) returned to the lineup Tuesday versus the Wild.

Bailey, who missed the previous two games with the injury, will join Frans Nielsen and Mikhail Grabovski on the team's second trio. The former top-10 draft pick hasn't enjoyed an overwhelming amount of success this season, accumulating just seven points and a plus-3 rating over 17 games.
