Blues' Elliott Sees Relief Duty In Game 6

News: Brian Elliott stopped six of seven shots in relief of Jake Allen in Sunday's series-ending Game 6 loss to the Wild.
Analysis: It was the only appearance of the postseason for Brian Elliott, as the Blues opted to go with 24-year-old Jake Allen instead. While the youngster didn't have the best postseason, Elliott was disappointing in the second-half of the regular season and didn't do anything to win over coach Ken Hitchcock. While his .897 career playoff save percentage is a concern, Elliott had a strong season overall and will be a good fantasy option once again in 2015-16.

Blues' Elliott Bypassed For Game 1 Start

News: Brian Elliott will serve as the backup to Jake Allen in Game 1 of the Blues' first-round playoff series against the Wild, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: While Brian Elliott has ranked as the Blues' top option in goal for much of the season, his post-All Star break funk (2.66 GAA, .904 save percentage in 24 second-half outings) will end up costing him the No. 1 gig heading into the playoffs. Allen has certainly earned the appointment with his stellar play down the stretch, but given his relative youth, he probably doesn't have a stranglehold on the starting job. Elliott could reemerge if Allen falters early in the series.

Blues' Elliott Ends Regular Season With Win

News: Brian Elliott picked up the victory Saturday against the Wild, stopping 23 of 25 shots in the 4-2 win.
Analysis: It was a strong outing for Brian Elliott, but with both the Wild and Blues resting several of their regulars Saturday, it doesn't necessarily provide a good template for how the teams will match up when they reconvene for Game 1 of their playoff series Thursday. While it was good to see Elliott play solidly, his overall decline in performance down the stretch will put his status as the Blues' No. 1 netminder in question entering the postseason. After coach Ken Hitchcock was burned by his fierce loyalty to Ryan Miller last postseason at Elliott's expense, he may be inclined to turn to the red-hot Jake Allen this time around.

Brian Elliott

Blues' Elliott To Start Saturday

News: Brian Elliott will start Saturday's regular-season finale against the Wild.
Analysis: Brian Elliott allowed three or more goals in each of his previous four appearances, while Jake Allen allowed exactly one goal in each of his last four starts. Even if Elliott turns in a gem Saturday, it's possible at this point that Allen has unseated him for the No. 1 role heading into the playoffs.

Brian Elliott

Blues' Elliott Allows Five Goals In Win

News: Brian Elliott stopped 27 of 32 shots in Friday's win over the Stars.
Analysis: Not the best night for Brian Elliott, who still managed to pick up his first win in five games. While he owns a great 25-14-3 record on the season, the 29-year-old has given up 14 goals in his last four games, dropping his save percentage to .916. He's been outstanding this season, but this recent rough patch has many questioning whether he'll be able to lead the Blues on a deep playoff run. If things don't pan out, the Blues could turn to 24-year-old Jake Allen and his impressive 20-6-4 record.

Blues' Elliott Starts Friday

News: Brian Elliott will start in net Friday against the Stars, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Brian Elliott has been struggling in net lately, losing each of his last four starts between the pipes. He's still considered the Blues' top goaltender as the team heads into the playoffs, but Jake Allen has performed well enough that both of the netminders will likely see time in goal when it rolls around.

Blues' Elliott Loses Fourth Straight

News: Brian Elliott allowed three goals on just 21 shots in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Canucks.
Analysis: Brian Elliott has now dropped four straight, and Monday's 18 saves actually marked his highest total in that department in his past three games. Jake Allen received consecutive starts last week and despite coach Ken Hitchcock's recent reassurance that Elliott will start the majority of the games down the stretch, it's possible the goalie situation will become more fluid while the 29-year-old struggles.

Brian Elliott

Blues Turn To Elliott On Monday

News: Brian Elliott is slated to start Monday's game against the Canucks, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Analysis: Brian Elliott stopped only 13 of 16 shots Saturday against the Blue Jackets to take his third straight loss. He'll look to turn things around Monday against a Vancouver squad that has dropped two straight games by a combined tally of 8-4.

Blues Turn To Elliott On Saturday

News: Brian Elliott is slated to start Saturday's game against the Blue Jackets, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Analysis: Moreover, Korac relays via coach Ken Hitchcock that Brian Elliott is in line to see the majority of the Blues' starts heading into playoffs, noting that Hitchcock rewarded Jake Allen for his strong game in Detroit last Sunday with another start in Pittsburgh on Tuesday.

Blues' Elliott Pulled Saturday

News: Brian Elliott was yanked after allowing four goals on 16 shots in a 6-3 loss to the Wild on Saturday.
Analysis: This was Brian Elliott's third consecutive start as coach Ken Hitchcock was rewarding him for allowing just a single goal in the previous two starts against Winnipeg and Calgary. Despite strong ratios (.921 save percentage, 2.16 GAA), Elliott has been rather inconsistent at times and as such hasn't fully taken over the starting duties in St. Louis this season. Jake Allen is starting Sunday against Detroit, and if he plays well, it's anybody's guess who'll get the keys to the crease in the games that follow. Owners of both will want to keep a close eye on things.

Brian Elliott

Bruins' Elliott In Crease Saturday

News: Brian Elliott will be between the pipes for Saturday's game against the Wild, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Brian Elliott's strong career numbers against the Wild (6-1-0, 1.94 GAA, two shutouts in nine appearances) likely guided coach Ken Hitchcock's decision to stick with his No. 1 netminder for Saturday's contest. With the Blues beginning their four-game road trip with a back-to-back set, backup goalie Jake Allen will get the call Sunday in Detroit while Elliott rests.

Blues' Elliott Stuck With Shootout Loss

News: Brian Elliott stopped 33 of 34 shots Thursday, but took a shootout loss to the Jets.
Analysis: A tough one for Brian Elliott, but he can't be perfect every game. He's still given up just four goals in his last four starts -- though he's just 2-1-1 in that span -- and remains one of the finest goaltending assets in the league.

3/19/2015

Brian Elliott, G, STL

Brian Elliott

Blues' Elliott In Line To Start Thursday

News: Brian Elliott will be in the crease for Thursday's game against the Jets, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Brian Elliott has alternated shutouts with stinkers over his last four games, but has still been able to come away with the win three times. On the whole, he's been spectacular this season with a 24-11-2 record, 2.11 GAA, and .922 save percentage, making it worthwhile to ride with him through his occasional spells of inconsistency. He should make for an above-average option in goal for the Thursday slate.

Blues' Elliott Notches 25-Save Shutout

News: Brian Elliott stopped all 25 shots the Flames sent his way Tuesday in a 4-0 victory -- his fifth shutout of the season.
Analysis: Brian Elliott's been rather inconsistent dating back to the All-Star break -- he's allowed one or zero goals eight times in 18 appearances, but has also allowed three or four goals nine times in that span. He's got two shutouts in his last three games, but they're sandwiching Saturday's unimpressive effort in a loss to Minnesota. Overall, however, his numbers on the season remain quite strong, so it's inadvisable to sit him down. He's actually been better on the road than at home this year, and the Blues are away for their next four games.

Blues Turn To Elliott On Tuesday

News: Brian Elliott is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Flames, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Brian Elliott, who surrendered three goals on 19 shots in Saturday's loss to the Wild, thus returns to the Blues' net Tuesday after giving way to Jake Allen in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Stars. Overall, Elliott has recorded a 2.17 GAA to go along with a .920 save percentage in 39 appearances for the Blues this season.

Blues' Elliott Allows Three Goals In Loss

News: Brian Elliott gave up three goals on 19 shots in Saturday's loss to the Wild.
Analysis: Not the best night for Brian Elliott, who had won his previous three games, allowing just five goals in that span. He falls to 23-11-2 on the season with a .920 save percentage and 2.17 GAA. Considering his stellar play this season, we'd chalk this one up as a bad outing and move on. He's good enough to be an automatic roll every game he gets the nod.

Brian Elliott

Blues' Elliott To Start Saturday

News: Brian Elliott will be in the crease for Saturday's game against the Wild, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Analysis: Brian Elliott will make his fifth consecutive start for the Blues on Saturday against Minnesota. He's been excellent of late, racking up five wins in his last six starts and surrendering one or zero goals in four of those contests. He'll take on a Wild team that averages 2.82 goals scored per game, good for 10th best in the NHL.

Blues' Elliott Wins Shutout Duel In Shootout

News: Brian Elliott matched zeroes with opposing netminder Steve Mason for 65 minutes Thursday, stopping 28 shots and then two more in the shootout for a 1-0 win.
Analysis: A very sharp bounceback from Tuesday's miserable outing against Winnipeg. That misstep aside, he's been excellent of late, with five wins in his last six starts; he's given up one or zero goals in five of those games.

Blues' Elliott To Start Again Thursday

News: Brian Elliott will be in the cage for Thursday's game against the Flyers, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Analysis: Brian Elliott wasn't on his game Tuesday night against the Jets, but managed to escape with the win, despite stopping only 12 of 16 shots. Prior to that, however, Elliott had been airtight in goal, surrendering two or fewer goals in each of his previous four starts. The netminder seems to have built up enough goodwill at this point for coach Ken Hitchcock to overlook the occasional misstep, and fantasy owners should be similarly forgiving. He'll still make for a sound option on the Thursday slate.

Brian Elliott

Blues' Elliott Wins Ugly

News: Brian Elliott gave up four goals on just 16 shots, but still got the win Tuesday against Winnipeg.
Analysis: With a .750 save mark, Brian Elliott was about as bad as you can be while still winning. He'd only given up five goals in his last four starts combined, so this is most likely an outlier for the veteran goalie, although it's worth noting that his stats have been highly inconsistent over the last few weeks.

Blues Turn To Elliott On Tuesday

News: Brian Elliott is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Jets, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Brian Elliott, who will be making his third straight start for the Blues, lifted his record this season to 21-10-2 by turning away 23 of 24 shots in Saturday's 6-1 win over the Maple Leafs.

Brian Elliott

Blues' Elliott Wins Easily Saturday

News: Brian Elliott turned away 23 of 24 shots in Saturday's 6-1 win over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Brian Elliott has been sharp over his last four starts, surrendering two or fewer goals on each occasion. Meanwhile, with backup Jake Allen faltering his last couple of times out, Elliott could be in line for an increased workload in the coming weeks as the Blues look to solidify favorable positioning for the playoffs. An uptick in starts would only further bolster Elliott's fantasy utility, which has already been high thanks to his impressive ratios (2.16 GAA, .923 save percentage).

Blues' Elliott To Man Net Saturday

News: Brian Elliott will be in the crease for Saturday's game against the Maple Leafs, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Brian Elliott has been fairly airtight between the pipes of late, yielding a combined four goals over his last three starts. He was dealt a tough loss his last time out against the Blues, but because of excellent supporting cast surrounding him, he'll be able to rake in the wins most of the time he mans the net. He should qualify as one of the best options on the board for Saturday's slate, as the Maple Leafs have struggled to put much offensive pressure on opposing goalies since the All-Star break.

Third-Period Flyers Rally Sinks Elliott, Blues

News: Brian Elliott stopped 28 of 30 shots Thursday against the Flyers, but ended up on the losing end.
Analysis: Though it's a strong outing statistically for Brian Elliott, he carried a 1-0 lead well into the third period before giving up two goals in a span of less than two minutes to flip the script. Elliott's allowed just four goals in his last three starts, so he's back on track after hitting the skids a little in early-to-mid February.

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.
