Lalonde said Ville Husso will start Tuesday against Carolina at Little Caesars Arena (7 p.m., Bally Sports Detroit) before a decision is made on who starts Wednesday in Minnesota.

“It could be Ville (on Wednesday); he looked really good in his last opportunity back-to-back (Dec. 2-3),” Lalonde said. “Obviously, we have the option of three guys now.”

Hellberg, claimed off waivers from Seattle on Nov. 23, went 2-2-0 with a 2.50 goals-against average and .932 save percentage for the Griffins.

“Obviously it’s a lot different from just practicing,” Hellberg said. “It’s a lot more mental playing games. I think it was really good for me to see a lot of shots.”

Said Lalonde: “I liked that he did what we asked of him. He did not have to agree to the conditioning stint. He went down there and played well. It’s good on him.”

Nedeljkovic has lost his past three starts and is 2-4-2 with a 4.09 GAA and .880 save percentage.

“It’s tough, but you got to trust practice reps,” Lalonde said. “In this day and age with a specialized full-time goaltending coach, got to trust that a little bit. I know statistically it was a tough game for Ned (Thursday’s 5-1 loss in Florida). You can nit-pick on each goal, but he was ready to play that game.”

All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
