Poor reaction there. He's got plenty of time to get his hands up in front of his face while sliding in.

It's almost like he was trying to use his head as a dart to hit a bullseye.

He's off balance, falling, and sliding on ice. Not really as easy as "get your hands up". The human instinct to protect the brain and spine is pretty universal, think he would have raised his hands if he could.
 

Preston

AKA: Preston Fauci. Prestauci.
You also think he didn't have time to put his hands up, or shift to his side?

Was Robertson's shot stoppable too!?
Honestly I didn't watch it till right now. It looked like his initial reaction was to put his arms on the ice to try to push himself back up quickly and he kind of got jammed there as he was pushed.

TLDR: Protecting himself wasn't his plan. He had the WILL to try to compete over the WILL to protect himself.

We just stole Detroit's goalie prospect Pettruzzelli. Signed to a Marlies deal.

21yr old 6'5" goalie who's been very good the last 2yrs in the NCAA.
