Bailey missed the Islanders 1-0 overtime victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday and New York’s 3-0 loss to the Boston Bruins on Friday night. Bailey sustained the undisclosed injury at some point during the Islanders 4-1 defeat at Boston Thursday after playing just under seven minutes. The 2008 eighth overall draft pick has six goals and 25 points in 43 games this season. In five meetings with the Rangers this season, Bailey has averaged over 17 minutes of ice time but has just one assist.
The veteran forward is available in about 90 percent of traditional fantasy leagues and can be picked up at FanDuel for $4300. Over at the FanDuel Sportsbook, the Islanders are -122 on the moneyline, +210 to cover the -1.5 puck line, and the game sports a total of 5.5, with the over having slightly more value. The Islanders will be looking to snap the Rangers’ four-game win streak.
