Domingue came away with a loss Wednesday against the Canucks despite giving up just two goals on 26 shots. Domingue was outdueled by veteran Ryan miller, who allowed just one goal on 34 Arizona shots. The 23-year-old netminder still owns a decent 9-7-4 record, but a lot of his luster has worn off as he has failed to win any of his last four starts while allowing 17 goals in that span. A lot of the young Coyotes skaters aren't very defensively responsible, and Domingue will continue to bear the brunt of their mistakes moving forward.
Domingue will get the start Wednesday against the Canucks, Sarah McLellan of AZCentral reports. Domingue has been touched up in each of his past three starts, giving up five goals in each and only seeing the end of his last start. He beat the Canucks in his only start against them and is sporting a 9-6-4 record with a 2.64 GAA and a .915 save percentage this season.
Domingue allowed five goals on 40 shots in Thursday's 5-4 overtime defeat to the Blackhawks. Although his 35 saves were a welcome sight, Domingue ultimately still gave up five goals for the third straight game. Arizona's mistake-prone defense has been putting the young goaltender under a lot of pressure lately, and this performance won't do much to ease owners' angst after Domingue was pulled in each of his last two starts.
Domingue will start in the crease Thursday against the Blackhawks, the Arizona Republic reports. Domingue hasn't finished either of his past two contests after allowing five goals in each, but will get a chance to turn things around Thursday. The Coyotes will prepare for a Blackhawks club who gets back the services of star center Jonathan Toews. Given the opponent, it's quite possible Domingue will be in for another rough night.
Domingue was chased from net Tuesday by the Kings, as he allowed five shots to find the back of the net. Domingue has gotten the hook in each of his last two starts and registered a combined 7.23 GAA in those matchups. Despite recording six wins out of 11 contests in January, the netminder's recent run of poor form will have the team clamoring to get Mike Smith (lower body) back from injury as soon as possible.
