Yes the shot injured him, but Lupul needs to take some blame here too. Lupul knew that standing in front of the net was risky and he also knew Phaneuf had a wild-child shot but yet he gambled, that gamble cost him 8 weeks. As much as Phaneuf is to blame so is Lupul.
There shouldn't be any blame period. Both were doing their jobs. One shooting the puck towards the net, the other trying to screen the goalie and either tip the puck in or put in a rebound.
