Coyotes’ Domingue feels like he belongs in NHL after first shutout
After notching his first NHL shutout in his second career win at this level in a 1-0 victory against the Islanders, Arizona Coyotes goalie Louis Domingue didn’t deny the resulting boost in confidence.
“Every time you play and you do good, you just feel like you belong in the league,” Domingue said, according to the Arizona Republic’s Sarah McLellan. “That’s how I feel right now.”
Domingue only received a goal to work with in that win last night, yet he still got the job done.
To Dave Tippett, the biggest save came when Domingue turned aside a shorthanded attempt by Casey Cizikas:
When you’re battling for every point and only getting hit-or-miss goaltending like the Coyotes, it’s silly to leave any stone un-turned, so Tippett seems keen on finding out if Domingue really does belong in the NHL.
Tippett on Domingue: “Right now we’re in the position you win, you’re in. That’s the mindset we got right now. He won. He’s in.”— Sarah McLellan (@sarah__mclellan) December 20, 2015
Goalies are a strange beast, so why not see if Domingue can continue that momentum?
