Rookie Louis Domingue will start for Arizona after making his debut Saturday in relief of Mike Smith. Domingue, 22, allowed two goals on 11 shots over the final 17:43 of the Coyotes' 7-2 loss to the Ottawa Senators at Canadian Tire Centre after he was recalled from Portland of the American Hockey League earlier in the day.
"We were going to wait and see how Smith was [Saturday] and just the way the game turned out [Saturday] we decided that we were going to put [Domingue] in," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. "It will be very exciting for a young player to get his first start in Montreal. He had a great camp for us. He went down to the minors, played well and got injured, and then came back after the All-Star Game and played one game, so the situation our team is in it's a great opportunity for a young player. It will be a great memory for him and hopefully he does very well."
