Islanders Vs. Avalanche Score: Josh Bailey Has New York Up, 1-0, After 1st Period

The Colorado Avalanche trail the New York Islanders, 0-1, at the conclusion of the first period of play at the Pepsi Center on Thursday night. The Islanders were on the power play as a result of T.J. Galiardi taking a goalie interference penalty and the Avalanche were just five second away from killing the penalty. However, on a face off in the Avalanche's zone, Islanders center Josh Bailey won the draw and then redirected the puck on a shot very near the blue. The puck went past Jean-Sebastien Giguere for the power play goal. It was Bailey's first goal of the season.

The Avalanche entered this game with the No. 1 power play in the league, but they failed on both power play opportunities. The team did outshoot the Islanders in the first period, 12-9. David Jones leads the team with three shots on net while defenseman Erik Johnson is next with two.

Through 19 periods at home, the Avalanche have scored a total of seven goals.
