The New York Islanders take on the New York Rangers on Tuesday night in preseason action at Madison Square Garden. The game will be broadcast on MSG+. 

The Islanders are 4-1-0 in preseason play after picking up a 3-2 OT win over the Detroit Red Wings on Monday night. The Rangers are 0-3-0 in the exhibition season. 

Josh Bailey is expected to make his preseason debut on Tuesday night. The Islanders forward is one of the last veteran players to make his debut, as he's been dealing with an undisclosed minor issue through camp. A handful of players, including Mathew Barzal, Anders Lee, Jordan Eberle, Nick Leddy and Noah Dobson are appearing in back-to-back games.
