Brian Elliott

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.

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.

Brian Elliott

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.

Brian Elliott

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, G, STL

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.

3/11/2015

Brian Elliott, G, STL

Brian Elliott

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.

Brian Elliott

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, G, STL Blues' Elliott Wins Easily Saturday

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).

3/6/2015

Brian Elliott, G, STL

Brian Elliott

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.

Brian Elliott

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.

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.

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.

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.
