A rather unlikely player has stepped up to keep the Arizona Coyotes in the playoff race.
Last night, Domingue stopped 25 of 26 shots in a 2-1 win over Calgary. His record improved to 5-2-2; his save percentage to .930.
With Domingue’s help, the Coyotes have shaken off their December struggles and ridden a 6-1-2 stretch into second place in the Pacific Division, three points clear of third-place Vancouver.
In a related story, we wonder if GM Don Maloney is still “willing to pay up an asset” to “get a top-end goaltender that’s a long-term value to the franchise.”
At the risk of getting fooled by a small sample size, maybe Maloney’s already got one of those.
