Recap: NY Islanders vs. New Jersey

Uniondale, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Josh Bailey scored the winner in the shootout as the New York Islanders grabbed a 3-2 win over the New Jersey Devils on Monday.

In the fifth round, Bailey was able to sneak a low shot between the pads of Keith Kinkaid, and Jacob Josefson missed the net on New Jersey's last chance.

"They're fun and you have to go out there and enjoy it," said Bailey about shootouts. "You can't be nervous when you go out there so you just have to embrace the moment and enjoy it."

Bailey and Matt Martin each had a goal, while Jaroslav Halak stopped 26 shots for the Islanders, who have won their past two games.

Marek Zidlicky and Scott Gomez each had a goal and an assist for the Devils, who have dropped their past four games. Kinkaid stopped 31 shots in the loss.

"Well we got one point so start there and go home," said Gomez. "It's no reason to get frustrated because we played well enough. Give them credit, they came back and it's a good club over there."

The Devils drew first blood on the power play at 12:15 of the first after Gomez sent a pass from the right point to the high slot where Zidlicky one- timed a blast into the net.

Just over three minutes later, New Jersey took a 2-0 lead as Gomez whipped the puck out front from the right boards and it hit off the skate of Lubomir Visnovsky and went into the net.

The only goal of the second period went to New York when Ryan Strome sent a backhand pass from behind the left of the net to the slot where Bailey was able to wrist it into the left corner of the net at 1:51.

New York tied the game just past the midway point of the third as Casey Cizikas sent a saucer pass down the right wing for Martin, who skated to the circle and beat Kinkaid with a heavy wrister.
