As if his performance wasn’t enough, Domingue became a new fan favorite when he revealed that between his first and second overtime periods he’d been eating a funky snack.

“I actually had the meal between the first and second overtime,” Domingo She said in an interview. “I wasn’t expecting to get in, but maybe I kept my energy.”

But what was the meal involved?

“Some spicy pork and cauliflower – not the best,” he added.

Since his breakout performance in Game 1, Domingue has kicked off games 2, 3 and 4 – a totally unexpected turn of events for backup to backup.

Doming said the experience made him feel like a beginner again.

“I’m a novice at this – the playoffs,” he said in a post-match interview. “I’ve never watched the NHL playoffs, so every moment every day is a new day for me. It’s a new experience and I take it one day at a time, one moment at a time.”

When asked how he handles the lights, Doming said he tries not to let them affect his playtime mentality.

“I’m trying to shut everything down,” he said. “I’m trying to play this game because it’s just another match…just another day.” “At the end of the day we play hockey.”

In some ways, Domingue has been playing these games for years.

“From the moment I brought my net outside on the street and put my carts and played outside and had the cars spin around my net, this is the movie I’ve been playing in my head the whole time,” he said.

“I try to control my emotions. It’s very hard to be honest. It is very new and it is a lot. It is a lot, but we will take advantage of it day in and day out and move on… to the next match.”

Game 5 in New York is the next step for the Penguins and Dominic, although it’s not clear who will start the match in goal. Starter Tristan Gary has been on the ice lately, as I mentioned sports illustrator, However, the starting lineup for Wednesday’s match has not been released.

Gary has been out since mid-April after injuring his foot. The Associated Press reported last week that goalkeeper Casey Desmith will be out for the rest of the season after undergoing surgery.
