No excuses for wounded Knights' blowout loss to Leafs

Things can’t look any worse than they did at times Thursday.

Which is what happens with so many key pieces missing.

Which is what happens when leaders don’t lead very well.

Center Nicolas Roy follows the NHL standings. He knows where Pacific Division teams reside, how many points separate them and which ones should feel comfortable about earning a playoff spot.

He understands how significant these last few months are for the Knights.

“It’s getting pretty tight,” Roy said. “We’re going to have to start winning some games, for sure.”


They just have to play a whole lot better, for sure.

Have to somehow find their game.

Have to, well, get healthy.

Roy and his teammates find themselves in a familiar position with significant injuries hitting the roster again. Mark Stone is the latest to join the wounded. The captain is out week-to-week with an upper-body injury.
