Josh Bailey and Cal Clutterbuck were unavailable for the second consecutive game for Barry Trotz and the New York Islanders. Neither one of their ailments has been disclosed by the Islanders.

Bailey left part of Thursday’s game against the Boston Bruins in the second period before returning in the third. Both players are considered day-to-day by Islanders head coach Barry Trotz, though the severity of the issues are unclear.

“I think it’s probably more day-to-day than anything,” Trotz said Sunday afternoon. “I’d probably say before I would say week-to-week. I don’t have a clear understanding in terms of the timeline, but I would say it would be probably day-to-day.”

Michael Dal Colle and Leo Komarov rejoined the Islanders’ lineup in Bailey and Clutterbuck’s absence on Friday. Dal Colle played 9:46 in the shutout loss to Boston, while Komarov was on the ice for 12:24.

“I felt I was playing pretty good hockey before I went down so it was great being back out there,” Dal Colle said on Friday about his return.

Cal Clutterbuck has been an important cog in the New York Islanders fourth line this season. Clutterbuck has nine points (three goals,six assists) in 41 games, along with 47 hits and 20 blocks.

Josh Bailey has not seen the same offensive production that the Islanders would like, but he has remained an integral part of the lineup this year. In 43 games, Bailey has six goals and 19 assists for 25 points.
