The Golden Knights were in Boston to take on the Boston Bruins Thursday night. It was also a step in the right direction, as the Golden Knights previously lost five of their last six games.

But it wasn’t the homecoming Golden Knights coach Bruce Cassidy wanted. After VGK got the win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday night, they were right back in the red against Cassidy’s former team, the Boston Bruins. A pair of comebacks were not enough as the Golden Knights never got the lead.

Boston center Morgan Geekie notched his first career hat trick, but rookie Mason Lohrei netted the game-winner with less than five minutes remaining. It was a power-play goal, and Boston beat the Golden Knights, 5-4, at TD Garden Arena Thursday.

Last year there was the unknown,” Cassidy said. “I didn’t know what would happen coming back in here after getting let go. You don’t know if you’re going to get a nice hand or get booed out of the building. Anyway, we got that over with.

The Golden Knights fought off the Boston Bruins for the better part of the opening period, but the scoring picked up with five minutes remaining. The Bruins scored three quick goals in a span of three minutes to take a 3-0 lead.

We didn’t win very many races or battles for pucks in the first period, so we changed our forecheck a little,” Cassidy said. “Decided to get a little more aggressive all over the ice to see if we could get back in the game. Our guys have a lot of pride, and it showed. We got better, and it got us back in the game.”

I thought it would be close, but not 5-4,Cassidy said following the game.
