New, comments

Louis Domingue recorded his first career shutout as the Arizona Coyotes fought the New York Islanders to a 1-0 victory.

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

After several miserable defensive efforts, the Arizona Coyotes finally locked down their own zone. And for Louis Domingue, it could not have come at a better time.

Domingue stopped all 25 shots he saw to record his first career NHL shutout as the Coyotes won 1-0 over the New York Islanders at Gila River Arena.

Scoring Summary

First Period

1-0 Arizona: Oliver Ekman-Larsson provided the only offense Arizona needed after handing the puck off to Anthony Duclair on the red-line in the offensive zone. OEL found the soft spot between the New York forwards and defensemen and rifled a slapshot past Jaroslav Halak. Assists to Duclair and Tobias Rieder on the goal at 17:59.

Second Period

No scoring despite a late period New York power play. Louis Domingue was good.

Third Period

Still no scoring to end the game. Louis Domingue was very good.

Paw Prints

  • For the New York perspective, check out Lighthouse Hockey.
  • Steve Downie was a late scratch for the Coyotes. He was not listed as injured prior to tonight, but did look in some pain after a fight against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday.
  • Martin Hanzal returned from injured reserve for tonight's game. He was a +1 and took one shot just over 15 minutes of ice time.
  • While normally Ekman-Larsson leads the Coyotes in time on ice, tonight both Nicklas Grossmann (23:16) and Michael Stone (24:35) played more minutes than OEL. His two penalties on the night probably had something to do with it.
  • This was the first game all season that the Islanders failed to score a goal in.
  • The last team the Coyotes shutout was the Anaheim Ducks on October 14th of this season.
  • Attendance: 11,878

Looking Ahead

Arizona gets a few days off before playing the Toronto Maple Leafs at home on Tuesday night. Puck drop is at 7 PM Arizona time.
