During the game, Hellberg had one of the worst defensive efforts in front of him and just about everyone on the team left him out to dry. Sure he is 6'5", but you can't stop every shot especially if you have zero help from the defense. The accident was unfortunate. He obviously didn't deliberately try to pelt a chick with the puck, he just tried to shoot it out - like most goalies do after they get a goal scored on them. This one just happened to get good air on it.
