Red Wings' Magnus Hellberg: Needed in relief against Stars
Hellberg turned aside 14 of 17 shots after replacing Ville Husso midway through the first period of Monday's 6-1 loss to Dallas.
Neither goalie had much success as the Stars dominated play in all three zones for the first 40 minutes before taking their foot off the gas in the third period.

Hellberg stopped 23 shots in Friday's 6-2 loss to Winnipeg.

Over that seven-appearance stretch, the 31-year-old has a brutal 4.12 GAA and .868 save percentage, and he may not see any further action this season if Ville Husso (lower body) gets healthy and Alex Nedeljkovic remains with the big club....

Hellberg stopped 35 shots in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Bruins.

Hellberg got the nod with Ville Husso (undisclosed) unavailable, but even if Husso isn't ready to go for Sunday's game against the Flyers, Alex Nedeljkovic would likely get the start instead. Hellberg hasn't done much to earn more playing time anyway, going 1-4-1 through seven appearances since the beginning of January with an .894 save percentage.... See More ... See Less

For his part, Hellberg has played in just five of the team's last 23 contests and has secured just one victory over that stretch while posting a 2.54 GAA. Looking ahead to the remainder of the season, Husso should continue to see the majority of the starts while Hellberg serves as the No. 2 option.... See More ... See Less
