Recap: Blue Jackets 6, Islanders 4

Josh Bailey nets first hat trick but Islanders fall to Blue Jackets

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

Josh Bailey scored his first-career hat trick on Thursday, but it came in a losing effort as the New York Islanders fell 6-4 to the Columbus Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena. 

It was hard for Bailey to take solace in his first three-goal game, as the Islanders suffered back-to-back regulation losses for the first time this season. It was even more frustrating given that the Islanders had rallied out of a 3-0 hole to tie the score 3-3 in the second period, only to see the Blue Jackets retake the lead.

Pulock feeling confident, comfortable with Isles

The defenseman has shown more poise and confidence with the puck of late

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

There's a confidence that's come into Ryan Pulock's game this month and it's shown in the way he's been handling the puck. 

Pulock's been patient and poised with the puck on his stick, making moves on the blue line, pulling it around forecheckers and keeping his head up, looking for the best play instead of dish instead of succumbing to the pressure. Last Thursday he sidestepped a stick-less, but pestering Sidney Crosby before skating in, shooting and ultimately starting the play that led to a Jordan Eberle goal in the Isles overtime loss to the Penguins.
