Bailey scores 2 short-handed goals as Islanders beat Devils 5-3 in preseason

NEWARK, N.J. - Josh Bailey scored two short-handed goals in the first period, leading the New York Islanders to a 5-3 preseason victory over the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night.

The Islanders got to Devils goalkeeper Martin Brodeur for four goals on just eight shots over the first 20 minutes.

Anders Lee got the Islanders going with a power-play goal just 3:32 into the game. Bailey then made a steal at the top of the circle, skated in alone and fired it past the 41-year-old Brodeur for a 2-0 lead.

Rostislav Olesz got the Devils on the board before Bailey struck again, firing a backhander past Brodeur with 1:55 left in the period.

Kevin Poulin made 20 saves for New York.

Quote of the Day

I came into a team that had 65 points, that was at the bottom of the basement, a team that everybody wrote off as never going to be good. My goal is to go from the very bottom to the very top.
