Domingue stumps Sharks for Coyotes’ third win
Wins haven’t been easy to come by for the Arizona Coyotes so far this season, so Tuesday had to be a real confidence-builder.
Louis Domingue was the standout in that contest, making 39 out of 41 saves as the Coyotes beat the San Jose Sharks 3-2.
Patrick Marleau made it 1-0, but Domingue locked it down until Mikkel Boedker made it 3-2 in the waning seconds of the game. Arizona rallied with three goals in between those Sharks tallies, all in the second period.
As much attention as Dylan Strome drew, it was Lawson Crouse who scored his first NHL goal on Tuesday:
Strome somehow didn’t get a point on this unusual exchange:
Jamie McGinn ended up scoring the decisive goal, which must have felt a little sweeter being that the Sharks were the team that originally drafted him.
After dropping five games in a row, the Coyotes have now won two of three as they improved their record to 3-6-0. Arizona snapped the Sharks’ three-game winning streak, dropping San Jose to 6-4-0 in 2016-17.
The only drawback for the Coyotes right now is that Martin Hanzal and Tobias Rieder are now considered day-to-day with lower-body injuries.
