Struggles Continue For The Vegas Golden Knights

The Golden Knights showed flashes of turning the corner Sunday.

They registered more than 40 shots on goal for the second time in three games and cleaned up many of the defensive mistakes in the final two periods.

But it still wasn’t good enough.

The Knights couldn’t get a puck past goalie Ilya Sorokin and lost 2-0 to the New York Islanders in front of an announced crowd of 17,699 at T-Mobile Arena.

It was the fourth straight loss for the Knights, the first time that’s happened since Pete DeBoer was hired as coach Jan. 15, 2020. At 1-4, they also matched 2018-19 for their worst start in franchise history.

“When I look at our game, I thought we took a step last game and another tonight,” DeBoer said. “If you look at our record, are we a 1-4 team that’s going to miss the playoffs and have 50 or 60 points? I’m going to say we’re not. I think on all aspects, we want to just keep improving every day and judge all those things at the end of the year.”
