Hellebuyck stopped 33 of 36 shots in Saturday's 3-2 Game 6 loss to St.Louis. With the win, the Blues advance to the second round of the 2018-19 playoffs.
Hellebuyck put his team behind the eight-ball early Saturday, allowing a weak goal to beat him just 23 seconds into the game. Winnipeg's goaltender played well from there and stood little chance on the other two goals that beat him, but ultimately, Hellebuyck's effort wasn't good enough to keep his team's season alive. As a result, Winnipeg's offseason will kick off far earlier than anticipated, and big changes could be forthcoming following this disappointing crash landing out of the postseason.

Oddly enough, Hellebuyck has won both road games in this series, while averaging three goals allowed in the other three contests in front of the home crowd.

Hellebuyck's game has gone up and down like a yo-yo this season and it's been no different this postseason. The Jets were up 2-0 heading into the third Thursday night and Hellebuyck surrendered three goals, including the winner with just 15 seconds left. He has now lost all three home games this postseason. The good news is he's won both road games, so heading into St. Louis on Saturday could give him the advantage. Maybe.

The 25-year-old, who led the league in saves and shot attempts against this season, probably enjoyed the lack of work Saturday night, but the smaller sample size of shots did end up hurting his save percentage.
