A lot of goalies do pretty much the same thing (though not lifting their sticks as high) and it's very rare to see anyone struck by the stick. I highly doubt that Nabokov intentionally hit Tootoo with the stick. I don't think he should have lifted his stick like that.
Nabokov almost caught Smithson doing the exact same thing during the game last night, except it was going to be the blade of the stick. It was very close to catching Smithson.
