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.

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, G, STL Easy Win For Blues' Elliott

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.

Blues' Elliott Shuts Out Leafs

News: Brian Elliott made 27 saves for his third shutout of the season and 28th of his career in a 3-0 victory over Toronto on Saturday night.
Analysis: It's a nice effort after he allowed three goals in each of his last two games, including an ugly 13-minute performance against the Canes last Saturday. He's now 12-5-2 in 21 games this season and both his GAA and save percentage are sparkling. Take advantage.

Blues' Elliott Draws Saturday Start

News: Brian Elliott will be in the crease Saturday against the Maple Leafs, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: As coach Ken Hitchcock suggested earlier this week, Brian Elliott will make his second consecutive start Saturday after backup Jake Allen took the net Tuesday against Edmonton. Elliott narrowly missed out on his 12th win of the season his last time out against the Red Wings, surrendering the game-winner to Pavel Datsyuk with just three seconds left in overtime. Despite that disappointment, it hasn't dampened an incredible season for the netminder. Elliott enters play Saturday with an 11-5-2 record, 2.00 GAA and .925 save percentage.

Blues, Elliott Fall Short After Comeback

News: Brian Elliott and the Blues, down 2-0 at the second intermission, ended up forcing overtime Thursday against Detroit, but Pavel Datsyuk scored on him with three seconds left in the extra frame to hand him the loss. He stopped 21 of 24 shots.
Analysis: A pair of goals a minute apart at the end of the second period put Brian Elliott in a 2-0 hole, but his mates bailed him out in the third. The OT goal uglified Elliott's stat line for the game, but he's still been one of the best goalies in the NHL this season.

Brian Elliott

Blues' Elliott To Return To Net Thursday, Saturday

News: The Blues plan to give Brian Elliott the start in net Thursday against Detroit, as well as Saturday against Toronto, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The Blues will turn to Jake Allen for Tuesday's tilt with the Oilers, saving their No. 1 netminder to man the net for their two more difficult matchups of the week. Though he missed some time with a knee injury, Brian Elliott has otherwise been one of the NHL's best goalies this season, producing a 11-5-1 record, 1.95 GAA and .928 save percentage over 19 games.

Blues' Elliott To Start Thursday's Game

News: Brian Elliott will start Thursday's game against Detroit.
Analysis: Meanwhile, fellow goalie Jake Allen will draw the Blues' start in goal for Tuesday's contest against the Oilers.

Blues' Elliott Yanked After Three Goals On 10 Shot

News: Brian Elliott was ineffective Saturday against the Hurricanes. He allowed three goals on 10 shots and was relieved by Jake Allen.
Analysis: Coach Ken Hitchcock yanked him because he was shaky and so was the team in front of him. The move worked and allowed the Blues get back in the game. It might just be a blip, but Allen was great in relief and could steal time from Brian Elliott.

Blues' Elliott Draws Saturday Start

News: Brian Elliott will get the start in goal Saturday against the Hurricanes, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Analysis: Brian Elliott will make the fourth straight start for the Blues after leading the team to the win in the previous three contests. He's been the beneficiary of a total of 20 goals over those games, but to his credit, his ratios have been strong. That's essentially been the case with Elliott all season, making him an outstanding play just about any time he's set to take the net.

Brian Elliott

Blues' Elliott Wins Third Straight

News: Brian Elliott beat the Sharks by a 7-2 score for the second time in the last week on Thursday, stopping 24 of 26 shots this time.
Analysis: About the only difference between this game and the weekend's 7-2 whipping of the Sharks was that Brian Elliott had to make six more saves. He's now won three games in a row, posting strong ratios as usual, and the Blues have supported him with 20 goals in that time. How much more can a fantasy owner ask for?

Blues' Elliott Gets The Nod Thursday

News: Brian Elliott will be between the pipes for Thursday's game against the Sharks, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Brian Elliott will make his third straight start Thursday, which leaves little doubt that he has taken over as the Blues' primary goaltender. Elliott has played well since returning to action in late December, giving up just five goals in three games and posting a .944 save percentage.

Elliott, Blues Shut Out 'Yotes

News: Brian Elliott turned aside 23 shots in a 6-0 rout of the Coyotes on Tuesday.
Analysis: Despite how well Brian Elliott's played, this represents only his second shutout of the season -- though of course he missed significant time to injury. He's now taken over the NHL's GAA lead (1.80) and is just three ticks behind Michael Hutchinson's league-best .936 save percentage.

Blues' Elliott Confirmed To Start Tuesday

News: Brian Elliott has been confirmed as the starter for Tuesday's game against Arizona, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Brian Elliott started the Blues' last game Saturday against San Jose and allowed two goals on 20 shots as St. Louis cruised to a 7-2 victory. He's 9-5-1 on the season with a rock solid .930 save percentage and 1.91 GAA. Elliott has established himself as one of the NHL's top fantasy goaltenders and faces an Arizona team Tuesday that ranks 25h in goals per game (2.3).

Blues' Elliot Makes 18 Saves In Lopsided Win

News: Brian Elliott turned away 18 of 20 shots in Saturday's blowout win over the Sharks.
Analysis: Brian Elliott is now 9-5-1 on the season with an impressive .930 save percentage and 1.91 GAA. He hasn't lost back-to-back games in regulation this season, making him one of the most reliable and consistent netminders around. He has stopped 62 of 67 shots in two games since returning from a knee injury and should be in your lineup every night he gets the nod.

Blues' Elliott To Start Saturday

News: Brian Elliott will start Saturday's game against the Sharks, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Martin Brodeur will get the call Friday in Anaheim, while Elliot returns to action Saturday. In his last outing, he allowed three goals, stopping 44 of 47 shots, in a 3-2 loss to the Predators.

Blues' Elliott Under Fire In Return

News: Brian Elliott was tasked with facing 47 shots in his first game back from IR on Tuesday, and though he impressively stopped 44 of them, it wasn't enough in a 3-2 loss to Nashville.
Analysis: The Preds offered Brian Elliott a rude welcome back to game action after he missed more than a month with a knee injury, but the important thing for the veteran's fantasy owners is that he got through this one healthy and looked sharp despite facing a barrage of shots. Thanks to the injury absence, this actually marks the first time Elliott's given up more than two goals in a game since Nov. 3 against the Rangers.

Blues' Elliott Starting Tuesday

News: Brian Elliott, who was activated from injured reserve Tuesday morning, will start Tuesday's game against the Predators, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: While it remains to be seen how the playing time will be divided among the Blues' goalies, Brian Elliott gets the nod over Jake Allen and Martin Brodeur for Tuesday. Five weeks have passed since Elliott last played in a game.

Blues' Elliott (Knee) Activated From IR

News: Brian Elliott (knee) was activated from injured reserve Tuesday morning.
Analysis: Brian Elliott was medically cleared over the weekend, so his activation comes as little surprise. It's not entirely clear how the starts will be divided, as the Blues still have Jake Allen and Martin Brodeur in the crease. Allen owns an 11-5-2 record, but he's given up 12 goals over the last three games. A timeshare between Allen and Elliott wouldn't be surprising.

Blues' Elliott (Knee) Medically Cleared

News: Brian Elliott (knee) has been medically cleared, and now it will be up him and goalie coach Jim Corsi to determine when he will be available, Lou Korac of the Blues' official site reports.
Analysis: Brian Elliott has a timetable for return shortly after the calendar shifts to 2015, and the latest news reinforces his imminent return. Now that he's been medically cleared, it will just come down to when he feels he and the team's goalie coach feel he's ready to return. The team will likely provide an update when that date nears.

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.
