Blues' Elliott Looking At Early-January Return

News: Brian Elliott (knee) has been practicing with the Blues for the last couple weeks and could return soon after the new year, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Martin Brodeur and Jake Allen have been holding things down in goal for St. Louis with mixed effectiveness, so the Blues will certainly be happy to get Brian Elliott back sometime within the next two weeks, assuming he progresses without setbacks.

Blues' Elliott Limited In Tuesday's Practice

News: Brian Elliott (knee) was a limited participant in Tuesday's practice, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Brian Elliott was dressed in full gear for the session and said he's been feeling good during the rehab process, but it doesn't look like he's close to a return just yet. While Elliott has been out, the Blues have signed Martin Brodeur to serve as the primary backup to Jake Allen, who has since ascended to the top spot on the goalie depth chart.

Blues' Elliott Skates On Tuesday

News: Brian Elliott (knee) skated Tuesday for the first time since suffering his injury last week, Sportsnet's John Shannon reports.
Analysis: Despite the seemingly good news regarding Brian Elliott's health, the Blues still went out and signed veteran Martin Brodeur on Tuesday, signaling that a return isn't necessarily forthcoming for Elliott. The Blues are still considering him week-to-week with the injury, and probably won't have a clearer timeline for his return until he resumes practicing.

Blues' Elliott Week-To-Week With Knee Injury

News: Coach Ken Hitchcock announced after Wednesday's practice that Brian Elliott is considered week-to-week with a suspected knee sprain, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Though Brian Elliott will miss multiple games as a result of the injury sustained Tuesday night, he appears to have avoided a more serious issue, as the Blues determined surgery won't be necessary. Still, the week-to-week timetable will make it tough to pin down an expected return date for the netminder. Jake Allen is expected to carry the load for the Blues as the No. 1 netminder and should make for an upper-tier fantasy option in the interim now that he won't have to share duties with Elliott.

Blues Place Elliott On IR

News: Brian Elliott (knee) was moved to injured reserve Wednesday.
Analysis: With the Blues deeming Brian Elliott week-to-week after he suffered a knee injury in Tuesday's game, the goalie was placed on IR to pave the way for the activation of Jordan Binnington from AHL Chicago. Binnington figures to see scant duty behind Jake Allen, who will now be in line for a full-time role in the wake of Elliott's injury.

Blues' Elliott Out With Lower-Body Injury

News: Brian Elliott has a lower body injury and will not return to Tuesday's game, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Analysis: He collided with a member of the Senators in Tuesday's game, and while the contact was incidental, it was enough to keep Brian Elliott from returning. He was replaced by Jake Allen and should be considered day-to-day.

Blues' Elliott Leaves Early Tuesday

News: Brian Elliott was removed from Tuesday's outing in the second period following a collision with a member of the Senators.
Analysis: Brian Elliott headed to the locker room after taking the hit, which was deemed incidental contact. It's not apparent what type of injury Elliott might have suffered, but given the force of the impact, the Blues will more than likely evaluate him for a concussion. Elliott stopped all 16 shots he faced Tuesday and held a 2-0 lead before being replaced by Jake Allen, so he could still have a chance at coming away with a victory. The Blues figure to update his condition either after the game or at Wednesday's skate.

Blues' Elliott To Start Tuesday

News: Brian Elliott will be in goal for Tuesday's game against the Senators, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Brian Elliott, who has not given up more than three goals in a game this season, will face off against an Ottawa squad that has won just two of its last eight games.

Brian Elliott

Blues' Elliott Victorious Saturday

News: Brian Elliott turned aside 22 of 24 shots en route to his eighth win of the season Saturday as the Blues beat the Senators 3-2.
Analysis: Brian Elliott got the best of his former team in the matinee, improving his record to 8-4-1 on the season. His numbers (1.90 GAA, .927 save percentage) continue to impress, but until he can create a large enough cushion between he and backup Jake Allen to allow himself to start more than two games in a row, he'll be on the outside of the league's truly elite netminders.

Blues' Elliott Prepared To Start Saturday

News: Brian Elliott will be between the pipes Saturday against the Senators, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Brian Elliott yielded Thursday's start against the Canadiens to Jake Allen, but he'll be back in the net Saturday. The traveling Blues would seemingly be at a disadvantage playing an afternoon game on the road, but Elliott's been too good in any circumstance to keep on the bench. He sports a 7-4-1 record to go along with a 1.89 GAA and .928 save percentage over his 12 appearances on the season.

Blues' Elliott Gives Up Two In Loss

News: Brian Elliott faced only 17 pucks Tuesday against the Bruins, but allowed two goals to take a 2-0 loss.
Analysis: He was just over half as busy as opposing goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, but Fleury was impenetrable on Tuesday. This represents Brian Elliott's worst start in some time, but he still hasn't allowed more than three goals in a game all year.

Blues' Elliott Gets Starting Nod Tuesday

News: Brian Elliott will be in the net Tuesday against the Bruins, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Coach Ken Hitchcock went ahead and announced that Jake Allen would start the following game Thursday in Montreal, continuing his pattern of giving both netminders regular starting opportunities. Brian Elliott and Allen have both been spectacular with GAAs under 2.00 for the season, and while the timeshare will cut into the value of both, either goalie represents an elite fantasy option nearly every time he takes the ice.

Brian Elliott

Elliott's 24 Saves Help Blues Edge Capitals

News: Brian Elliott turned away 24 of the 25 shots he faced in Saturday's win over Washington.
Analysis: The beat goes on for Brian Elliott, who has won six of his last seven games, surrendering only 14 goals in that span. Elliott has posted a remarkable 7-3-1 record on the season, to go with an impressive .930 save percentage and 1.87 GAA. Jake Allen will still see a fair amount of starts, but rest assured, Elliott has been one of the league's best this season and together, the two goalies pack a great one-two punch.

Blues' Elliott Back In Win Column

News: Brian Elliott got back to his winning ways Tuesday, stopping 28 of 29 shots in a 6-1 stomping of the Sabres.
Analysis: After being stuck with a tough loss Saturday against Nashville despite allowing just two goals, Brian Elliott bounced right back with his fifth win in six outings -- and his first time allowing less than two goals since an Oct. 16 shutout of the Kings.

Brian Elliott

Blues' Elliott To Start Saturday

News: Brian Elliott will start in goal against the Capitals on Saturday, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Brian Elliott has seen more starts than Jake Allen this season, but the duo has been a spectacular one-two punch for the Blues in net. The veteran sports a 6-3-1 record with a 1.96 GAA and a .928 save percentage in 10 starts, but will give way to the younger Allen on Thursday. For all his successes, Elliott could still have his work cut out for him Saturday, facing a Caps team that ranks fourth in the league in scoring with 3.20 goals per game.

Blues' Elliott Starting Tuesday

News: Brian Elliott will start in net Tuesday against the Sabres, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Brian Elliott had his four game winning streak snapped by the Predators on Saturday, and will look to get back on track Tuesday. He's 5-3-1 to date with a .923 save percentage and a 2.06 GAA.

Brian Elliott

Blues' Elliott Outstanding In Loss

News: Elliot was phenomenal Saturday, stopping all but two of the 35 shots he faced in Saturday's loss to Nashville.
Analysis: Had Brian Elliott gotten more offensive support, he likely would have picked up his fifth straight win Saturday. While Jake Allen has done well lately, Elliott has done just fine himself, posting a 4-0-1 record in his last five games and allowing only 12 goals in that span. As long as he keeps playing well, he will continue to see the bulk of starts in the Blues' crease.

Brian Elliott

Blues' Elliott To Start Saturday

News: Brian Elliott will return to the cage Saturday against the Predators, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Though Jake Allen has been superb over his last few outings, Brian Elliott remains salient in coach Ken Hitchcock's goalie rotation. With five wins, a 2.06 GAA and .920 save percentage in his eight appearances, Elliott has been stellar whenever called upon, and should be a reliable option against the Predators.

Blues' Elliott Prevails In Shootout Monday

News: Brian Elliott made a season-high 36 saves on 39 shots in a 4-3 shootout win over the Rangers on Monday. He also added an assist.
Analysis: Monday's gem should further pad the cushion between Brian Elliott and Jake Allen for St. Louis' starting gig, as "Ells" has now rattled off four wins in a row, posting a .916 save percentage (110 saves on 120 shots) during that span. Allen will still get his looks, but head coach Ken Hitchcock will have no reason not to stick Elliott between the pipes if he keeps up his stellar play.

Blues To Start Elliott On Monday

News: Brian Elliott will make the start in goal for the Blues in Monday's game versus the Rangers, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: In his first season as the Blues' nominal No. 1 goalie, Brian Elliott has essentially replicated the production he showed as a high-performing backup in 2013-14. He's delivered sterling ratios (1.96 GAA, .919 save percentage) while winning four of his seven starts, though the presence of the similarly successful Jake Allen behind on the depth chart has cut into Elliott's overall workload. Still, Elliott makes for a good fantasy option nearly any time he's announced as the starter, with Monday's match certainly fitting the bill.

Blues' Elliott Makes 27 Saves In Shootout Win

News: Brian Elliott stopped 27 of 29 shots in Saturday's shootout win over Colorado.
Analysis: That's three straight wins for Brian Elliott, who is doing everything he can to maintain the starting position ahead of Jake Allen. Elliott ranks sixth in the NHL with a 1.96 goals-against average and is a prime reason why the Blues are currently one of the league's hottest teams. Keep him rolling.

Brian Elliott

Blues' Elliott Gets Starting Nod Saturday

News: Brian Elliott will be between the pipes Saturday against the Avalanche, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: After Jake Allen shut out a stellar Anaheim squad Thursday night, the pressure will be on Brian Elliott to turn in a respectable outing against the Avs. Elliott has fared well thus far with a 3-2-1 record and 1.98 GAA over six appearances, but with Allen also excelling, it's imperative that he keeps rolling in order to maintain the larger portion of the goalie timeshare.

Stars' Elliott Claims Third Win

News: Brian Elliott turned away 25 of 28 shots in Tuesday's overtime win over the Stars.
Analysis: Brian Elliott performed only marginally better than opposing goalie Kari Lehtonen, but his work was good enough to give him his third win of the season. As he did primarily in a backup capacity last season, Elliott is again providing strong ratios (1.98 GAA, .917 save percentage), which will allow him to hold down the No. 1 goalie job over Jake Allen for the time being.

Blues' Elliott Starting Tuesday

News: Brian Elliott will start Tuesday's game against the Stars, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Brian Elliott played well last time out, stopping 22 of 24 shots against the Blackhawks, and will get the start Tuesday against another Central Division opponent.

Blues' Elliott Shines In Win Over Blackhawks

News: Brian Elliott made 22 saves on 24 shots in Saturday's win over the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Brian Elliott has been great this season, posting a 2-2-1 record, to go with a .922 save percentage and 1.78 GAA. As long as he keep playing likes he has, fantasy owners need not worry about the possibility of Jake Allen stealing the Blues' starting gig. St. Louis has stared the season slow, but after an important win Saturday, maybe the team will start to provide Elliott with some more offensive support. Once the Blues start living up to their potential, Elliott will become even more valuable than he has already been.
