Wednesday's Islanders-Golden Knights game was the type of low-chance, structured game the Islanders would take most nights.
The Islanders limited Vegas to 17 shots and fewer chances, but despite playing good, defensive hockey for a majority of the game, they came out with no points, falling 3-2 to the Golden Knights.
"We held a pretty good hockey team to 17 shots, you feel you should get a point out of that," Head Coach Barry Trotz said. "It's a missed opportunity. We played well in so many areas of the game, but we gave them things that were a little bit unforced."
