Domingue, 25, was reassigned to Syracuse on January 13 and posted back-to-back shutouts. He stopped 27 shots on Saturday against Rochester, then turned aside 17 yesterday versus Binghamton. Domingue has posted an 11-4-0 record with the Crunch this season, posting a 2.07 goals-against average and a .921 save percentage.
