Blues' Elliott To Start Thursday

News: Brian Elliott will start Thursday's game against the Flyers, reports Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Analysis: Brian Elliott was backing up Jake Allen on Sunday, but was pressed into service when Allen struggled and gave up one goal on six shots to Vancouver. He has had a strong season for the Blues, backstopping 20 wins with a 2.20 goals against and .921 save percentage.

Blues' Elliott Sees Relief Duty, Pulls Himself?

News: Elliot made five saves on six shots in relief of Jake Allen on Sunday against Vancouver. He later appeared to pull himself from the game after a third-period Canucks goal, and Allen was stuck with the loss.
Analysis: While it's unclear why Brian Elliott left the game, he appeared to exchange words with coach Ken Hitchcock on his way to the dressing room. While it was a weird night for Elliott, Allen has struggled of late, giving up nine goals in his last two games. Elliott draws the clear majority of the starts when healthy, and he owns a 20-9-2 record on the season with a .921 save percentage and 2.20 GAA. Don't worry about Sunday's mishap, as he's one of the best fantasy goaltenders around.

Blues' Elliott Makes 21 Saves In Win

News: Brian Elliott stopped 21 of 22 shots in Saturday's win over the Oilers.
Analysis: That's back-to-back strong outings from Brian Elliott, who advances to 20-9-2 on the season. Having allowed just a single goal in each of his last two outings, Elliott now owns a .922 save percentage and 2.17 GAA on the season. While Jake Allen could get the start Sunday in Vancouver, Elliott is one of the best fantasy options whenever he gets the nod.

Blues' Elliott To Start Vs. Oilers On Saturday

News: Brian Elliott will start Saturday's game in Edmonton, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: With Brian Elliott starting Saturday night, there's a good chance Jake Allen will get the nod for Sunday's game in Vancouver. However, the Blues have yet to name a starter for that game. First, Elliott will try to make the most of a favorable matchup, facing an Edmonton team with just 46 points this season.

Blues' Elliott Stops 30, Wins In Shootout

News: Brian Elliott saved 30 of 31 shots, then two out of three in the shootout to come away with a 2-1 win over Winnipeg on Thursday.
Analysis: Brian Elliott had uncharacteristically dropped two straight in ugly fashion, but it looks like a little extra time off helped him get right. He's now made 32 starts -- which isn't a lot, but it's still his highest mark since 2011-12. He's not used to being on the ice all that consistently, so expect Jake Allen to get more spot-start work than your average backup down the stretch.

Brian Elliott

Blues' Elliott Back In Action Thursday

News: Brian Elliott will receive the start in goal for Thursday's match against the Jets, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Since making an appearance in the All-Star Game, Brian Elliott's performance has seemed to dip considerably. Over his nine outings since the midseason showcase, Elliott is 5-4-0 with a 3.34 GAA and .896 save percentage. Don't be surprised if Thursday's game turns into a high-scoring affair, as opposing goalie Michael Hutchinson has had his own struggles since the break, letting in four or more goals in six of his last nine turns.

Brian Elliott, G, STL

Brian Elliott

Blues' Elliott Beaten For Four Goals In Loss

News: Brian Elliott gave up four goals on 29 shots in Saturday's loss to the Penguins.
Analysis: That's back-to-back poor outings from Allen, who has lost two straight games, allowing seven goals in that span. While his 18-9-2 record remains impressive, Jake Allen has been playing lights out lately, so perhaps the youngster will see some more starts if Brian Elliott continues to struggle. Don't be worried about Elliot, though, as his .919 save percentage and 2.26 GAA are among the league's best.

Brian Elliott

Blues' Elliott To Get Saturday Start

News: Brian Elliott will make his next start in goal Saturday against the Penguins, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: The Blues will give Brian Elliott an extra day to think about the dud he submitted Tuesday against the Stars, when he was pulled nine minutes in after allowing three goals on six shots. Backup Jake Allen, who has been quite effective lately, will get the nod for Friday's outing against the Bruins, leaving Elliott for the second half of the team's back-to-back set. Elliott has looked less sharp since the All-Star break, but still enjoys a fair level of job security over Allen.

Blues' Elliott Chased Early Tuesday

News: Brian Elliott allowed three goals on six shots and was pulled just 8:38 into Tuesday's loss to Dallas.
Analysis: A surprisingly ugly outing for Brian Elliott against the Tyler Seguin-less Stars, as he gave up the first two goals of Jamie Benn's hat trick in the first 8:18, then gave up another goal to Cody Eakin just 20 seconds later to get the yank. Elliott's been on a surprising stretch of inconsistent play since the All-Star break, having given up fewer than three goals only two times in eight starts. It doesn't help that the St. Louis defense has been much more porous of late.

Brian Elliott

Blues Turn To Elliott On Tuesday

News: Brian Elliott will be between the pipes Tuesday against Dallas, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Brian Elliott is coming off of an impressive 40 save win on Sunday against the Panthers, and has bounced back with consecutive wins after a mini slump. Dallas is one of the highest scoring offenses, but without the injured Tyler Seguin and with the way Elliott has performed this season, he's still worth starting for fantasy owners.

Blues' Elliott Stops 40 In Win

News: Brian Elliott made 40 saves on 41 shots in Sunday's 2-1 shootout win over the Panthers.
Analysis: Brian Elliott very nearly earned the shutout, but he wasn't able to fully withstand the 21-shot onslaught he faced in the third period, as the Panthers tied the score with just over a minute remaining in regulation. It's his second straight win after a pair of shaky outings as the 29-year-old appears to be back on track. Elliott's 2.10 GAA is third best among starting goalies, so keep him rolling whenever he's in net.

Brian Elliott, G, STL

Brian Elliott

Blues' Elliott Will Start Sunday

News: Brian Elliott will start in goal Sunday against the Panthers, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Brian Elliott has already been stuck with two regulation losses this month after going 6-0-1 with a 2.04 GAA and .919 save percentage in eight January outings. However, two of his three wins so far in February have come against the league's top scoring offense (Tampa Bay), and he'll make for an appealing option Sunday against a Panthers squad that ranks 25th in the NHL in goals per game.

Brian Elliott

Elliott, Blues Defeat Lightning

News: Brian Elliott wasn't at his sharpest Thursday, allowing three goals on 29 shots, but he came away with a 6-3 win over Tampa Bay.
Analysis: Truly, considering the quality of the opposing offense, it's not a bad start at all for Brian Elliott. But it is his third straight with a save mark under .900, even though he ended a two-game losing skid. Nonetheless, Elliott remains one of the more generally reliable fantasy goalies.

2/11/2015

Brian Elliott, G, STL

Brian Elliott

Blues Turn To Elliott On Thursday

News: Brian Elliott is slated to start Thursday's game against the Lightning, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Analysis: Brian Elliott, who gave way to Jake Allen on Tuesday, will return to the Blues' net Thursday against the Lightning, who lead the Eastern Conference with 74 points. In his last start against Tampa Bay, on Feb. 3, Elliott turned away 30-of-31 shots in a 2-1 St. Louis triumph.

Blues' Elliott Picks Up Second Straight Loss

News: Brian Elliott allowed three goals on 27 shots in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Brian Elliott followed up Friday's rough outing with a better performance, but it netted the same result nonetheless. Although the 29-year-old has given up either three or four goals in four of his last five outings, he still owns an impressive 2.11 GAA and .923 save percentage, so he should bounce back.

2/7/2015

Brian Elliott, G, STL

Brian Elliott

Blues' Elliott Pulled In Loss

News: Brian Elliott was pulled Friday against the Blue Jackets after giving up four goals on 14 shots.
Analysis: While it was a horrible outing for Brian Elliott, it was only his first loss in six games, so we'll cut him some slack. After going 45 straight games without allowing four goals in a game, Elliott has allowed four goals against twice in his last four games. Don't be worried, though, as his .924 save percentage and 2.08 GAA are among the league's best. He'll bounce back.

Brian Elliott

Blues Return Net To Elliott On Sunday

News: Brian Elliott will be in the crease for Saturday's game against the Blackhawks, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Analysis: Coach Ken Hitchcock will give Brian Elliott a mulligan after he submitted an uncharacteristically terrible start Friday against Columbus, surrendering four goals on 14 shots. Fantasy owners should be similarly forgiving of Elliott, who had won five straight starts prior to Friday's disaster.

2/6/2015

Brian Elliott, G, STL Blues' Elliott Starting Against CBJ On Friday

Brian Elliott

Blues' Elliott Starting Against CBJ On Friday

News: Brian Elliott will start Friday's game in Columbus, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: After Jake Allen got the nod against Buffalo on Thursday, there was little question that Brian Elliott would be back in net for Friday's game. Elliott has not lost a start since Jan. 15.

Brian Elliott

Blues' Elliott Notches Fifth Straight Win

News: Brian Elliott won his fifth straight game Tuesday, stopping 30 of 31 in a 2-1 win over the Lightning.
Analysis: Brian Elliott's given up just nine goals over the course of this streak, and four of those came in one game. As usual, when healthy, he's good for some of the best goalie numbers around.

Brian Elliott

Blues' Elliott Starting Tuesday

News: Brian Elliott will start Tuesday's game against the Lightning, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Analysis: Brian Elliott allowed seven goals in his previous two games, but he still picked up the win both times, and he's still having a fantastic season. Tuesday brings a rather difficult matchup, as the Lightning lead the NHL with 3.2 goals per game.

2/1/2015

Brian Elliott

Blues' Elliott Stops 33 In Win

News: Brian Elliott saved 33 of 36 shots in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Capitals.
Analysis: Brian Elliott's given up seven goals in his past two outings, but has come away with a win in both of them and has now won four straight. The 29-year-old is an elite option in net, with a 15-5-2 record and a 1.99 GAA.

Brian Elliott

Elliott Gives Up Four, But Blues Win In Shootout

News: Brian Elliott surrendered four goals on 37 shots Thursday against the Predators, but came away with a shootout win.
Analysis: Nice to play for an offense that has your back, though the veteran netminder rarely needs too much help. Brian Elliott's now won three straight and remains one of fantasy's elite goalies -- when he can stay healthy.

1/27/2015

Brian Elliott, G, STL Blues' Elliott To Start Thursday, Sunday

Brian Elliott

Blues' Elliott To Start Thursday, Sunday

News: Brian Elliott will start Thursday's game against the Predators and Saturday's game against the Capitals, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Though the Blues will have enjoyed a 10-day break in between games when they return to the ice Thursday, they'll still be forced to play three games in a four-day stretch. As a result, Brian Elliott will be rested Friday in favor of Jake Allen for a cushy outing against the porous Hurricanes, but make no mistake; he's still the Blues' clear-cut top goalie. With a 1.86 GAA and .930 save percentage over 22 games this season, Elliott will make for an elite option nearly any time he assumes the crease.

Brian Elliott

Easy Win For Blues' Elliott

News: Brian Elliott needed to make just 17 saves in a 3-1 win over the visiting Avalanche on Tuesday. The only goal he allowed was off a fortuitous bounce credited to Matt Duchene in the first period.
Analysis: With five wins in his last seven starts, the new year has been mostly good to Brian Elliott, who is enjoying life between the pipes of one of the league's most potent offenses. With a .930 save percentage and 1.86 GAA, "Kid Ells" has simply been one of the most consistently efficient backstoppers in the league this season, and his value has never been higher after backup Jake Allen failed to impress while Elliott was out with a knee injury in December.

Blues To Start Elliott On Monday

News: Brian Elliott is slated to start Monday's game against the Avs, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Brian Elliott, who will be making his third straight start for the Blues, is coming off a 3-0 shutout of Toronto on Saturday that lowered his GAA to 1.90 and lifted his save percentage to .929.
