Former Gladiators goaltender sees Stanley Cup playoff action for Lightning

Former Gladiators goaltender Louis Domingue has seen some action for the Tampa Bay Lightning during the 2018 Stanley Cup playoffs. Domingue, who is the backup goaltender to Andrei Vasilevskiy for the Lightning, had the opportunity to play in game one of the Eastern Conference Final against the Washington Capitals on Friday after Vasilevskiy struggled. 

Domingue stopped all seven shots he faced in the third period. He saw 18 minutes and 25 seconds of ice time before the Lightning pulled him for an extra attacker. The Capitals won the game 4-2 and currently have a 2-1 series lead over the Lightning heading into game four of the Eastern Conference Final at the Capital One Arena in Arlington, Va. on Thursday. 

Domingue played for the Gwinnett Gladiators of the ECHL from 2012-2015, right before the Gwinnett Gladiators changed their name to the Atlanta Gladiators at the start of the 2015-16 ECHL season. In 43 games for the Gladiators, Domingue had a record of 25 wins, 13 regulation losses and four losses in extra time. He had five shutouts, and a goals-against average of 2.51. Domingue also played 10 games for Gwinnett in the 2013 Kelly Cup Playoffs and had a record of six wins, four losses and a goals-against average of 2.23.
