solve the ivp using laplace tranforms

y''+2y'+2y=0 y(0)=1 y'(0)=-3

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

get to Y(s)[s^2+2s+2]=s-1

Y=(s-1)/[s^2+2s+2]

^^^

don't know how to simplify the denominator to solve using Laplace transforms. If I had to guess I would say maybe partial fractions but keep getting the wrong answer when I try to use them.
