by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

Josh Bailey's OT winner delivered the New York Islanders two points Wednesday night in a 4-3 win over the Philadelphia Flyers at Barclays Center. 

Bailey, who had a team-high three points (1G, 2A), knocked his own rebound past Brian Elliott 32 seconds into the extra frame, ensuring that a terrific effort from John Tavares would not go wasted. The Islanders captain twisted and turned and used a nifty one-handed play to beat Sean Couturier one-on-one along the wall, before feeding Bailey in front of the net.

5 Takeaways: The First 20 Games

Looking at the Islanders 11-7-2 start to the season

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

A quarter of the way through the season, the Islanders are 11-7-2 with 24 points, currently occupying the fourth spot in the Metropolitan Division and the first Wild Card in the Eastern Conference. 

A good start was a team focus, especially given how last season's slow start - 6-10-4 through 20 games - cost them at the end of the season. The Islanders are already ahead of last season's pace, getting to 11 wins in 19 games, as opposed to 31 games from last season. 

There's a lot to like about the Islanders through the first 20 games of the season, from the increase in scoring, their ability to consistently bank points and the emergence of Mathew Barzal. Here are five takeaways from the first quarter of the season.
