Bailey paces Islanders to 4-2 win against Flyers

Josh Bailey provided the go-ahead goal in the 3rd period, while adding a second tally, to lead the Islanders to a 4-2 win in Philadelphia

  • 04:31 •

The New York Islanders got their offense going on Saturday, scoring four goals and earning a much-needed two points in a 4-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center.

Brock Nelson and Nick Leddy also scored for the Islanders (93 points), who moved within one point of the Washington Capitals (94 points) for first place in the Metropolitan Division.

"I felt it was important to go back to the group that you sort of challenge a little bit," Head Coach Barry Trotz said of only making one lineup change after two shutout losses. "I liked our response about stepping up to the plate here and getting it done. That says a lot about the group, a lot about our character and hopefully it gives us some confidence."
