Jackets' McElhinney Allows Three In Win

News: Curtis McElhinney stopped 44 of the 47 shots he faced in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout victory over the Oilers.
Analysis: The Blue Jackets were outshot by the lowly Oilers 47-20, so it wasn't easy, but Curtis McElhinney was able to backstop his team to victory. The netminder played much better Wednesday than he had in his previous few games, which is a good sign, but his inconsistent play makes him an unreliable fantasy roll.

Curtis McElhinney

Jackets' McElhinney Confirmed For Wednesday

News: Curtis McElhinney will start in goal for the Jackets on Wednesday against the Oilers.
Analysis: Curtis McElhinney hasn't been able to lead the Jackets to victory in any of the last six times he's taken the ice, and owns a 2.85 GAA on the year.

Curtis McElhinney

Blue Jackets' McElhinney Could Face Oilers

News: Curtis McElhinney appears on track to start Wednesday's game against the Oilers, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: We'll await confirmation, but with the Blue Jackets playing Thursday against Vancouver as well, Curtis McElhinney is poised to give Sergei Bobrovsky a breather on Wednesday. McElhinney has enjoyed tremendous success against the Oilers over his career, going 4-0-0 with a 2.39 GAA and .920 save percentage over seven appearances.

Curtis McElhinney

Blue Jackets' McElhinney Could Start Wednesday

News: Curtis McElhinney is a candidate to start Wednesday's game against the Oilers, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Coach Todd Richards noted that Curtis McElhinney would get a start on the Blue Jackets' upcoming three-game road trip, and with the team also playing Thursday against Vancouver, it looks like McElhinney's turn in net could arrive Wednesday in Edmonton.

Jackets' McElhinney Yanked After One Period

News: Curtis McElhinney gave up three goals on 12 shots in the first period of Saturday's game against Colorado and was pulled after 20 minutes.
Analysis: The Jackets were behind the eight ball almost as soon as the game began -- they had to try to kill off a two-man advantage just a couple minutes into the game. Unfortunately, the Avs capitalized on both penalties and had a 2-0 lead by the 3:51 mark. It was downhill from there; they lost 4-0.

Jackets Turn To McElhinney On Saturday

News: Curtis McElhinney will be in the cage for Saturday's game against the Avalanche, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: No. 1 goalie Sergei Bobrovsky turned in a solid outing in Friday's win over the Devils, but with the Blue Jackets out of contention for the playoffs, there's no need for the team to turn to him for the second half of a back-to-back set. As a result, Curtis McElhinney will be tasked with stymieing the Avalanche, who saw their own fleeting playoff hopes likely come to screeching halt following Friday's announcement that reigning Calder Trophy winner Nathan MacKinnon would be lost for the season with a fractured foot. The Avs' attack hadn't lived up to expectations even with MacKinnon in the lineup, ranking 23rd in the league in goals per game, so McElhinney might not necessarily be a poor fantasy option Saturday in leagues that start multiple goalies.

Curtis McElhinney

Blue Jackets Turn To McElhinney On Sunday

News: Curtis McElhinney is slated to start Sunday's game against the Penguins, Jeff Rimer of Fox Sports Ohio reports.
Analysis: Per the report, Curtis McElhinney will be backed up Sunday by Sergei Bobrovsky, who may play Tuesday against the Capitals.

Curtis McElhinney

Jackets' McElhinney Allows Five In Loss

News: Curtis McElhinney surrendered five goals on 41 shots in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Penguins.
Analysis: Curtis McElhinney was not solely to blame for the loss as three goals came on the power play and he was peppered with shots all game, but it's still his fifth straight loss. Sergei Bobrovsky has been activated from injured reserve, and although McElhinney received both starts of a back-to-back set after the activation, the 31-year-old will likely return to his backup role.

Curtis McElhinney

Jackets' McElhinney: Allows Single Goal In Loss

News: Curtis McElhinney made 17 saves in a 2-0 loss to the Devils on Saturday night. He allowed just one goal.
Analysis: He got no support from his mates, who peppered Cory Schneider with pucks, but just couldn't solve him. Sergei Bobrovsky is back from the IR, so expect Curtis McElhinney to be picking splinters out of his pants starting immediately.

Curtis McElhinney

Jackets To Start McElhinney On Saturday

News: Curtis McElhinney will be in the crease for Saturday's game against the Devils, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: This could be Curtis McElhinney's last start for a while, as the Blue Jackets will activate Sergei Bobrovsky (groin) from IR to serve as the backup goalie for Saturday's tilt. Bobrovsky is then expected to man the net Sunday against the Penguins and should assume the bulk of the duties thereafter as the Blue Jackets cling to fleeting playoff hopes. To his credit, McElhinney has been generally serviceable in place of Bobrovsky for the past month, going 6-5-1 with a 2.51 GAA and .923 save percentage since the All-Star break. However, he's taken losses in each of his last three turns, and may have difficulty coming away with the win with one of the game's better goalies in Cory Schneider manning the opposite net.

Curtis McElhinney

Jackets' McElhinney Drops Third Straight

News: Curtis McElhinney took his third consecutive loss Thursday, giving up four goals on 26 shots against the Canadiens.
Analysis: Montreal's gotten the best of Curtis McElhinney twice in his last three starts, but this was his first game with a sub-.900 save mark in nearly two weeks. With Sergei Bobrovsky slated to return as soon as this weekend, the Ontarian backup is running out of fantasy relevance.

Curtis McElhinney

Blue Jackets Turn To McElhinney On Thursday

News: Curtis McElhinney is in line to start Thursday's game against the Canadiens, Shawn Mitchell of The Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Per the report, Curtis McElhinney will be backed up by Oscar Dansk on Thursday. Meanwhile, fellow goalie Sergei Bobrovsky continues to progress and could be ready for action as soon as this weekend.

Curtis McElhinney

Jackets' McElhinney Falls In Shootout

News: Curtis McElhinney made 34 save on 37 shots in Sunday's shootout loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: A great outing for Curtis McElhinney, who falls to 10-10-2 on the season with a .918 save percentage and 2.69 GAA. While he's lost two straight games, the 31-year-old has suffered just two regulation losses in his last eight appearances. McElhinney makes for a decent fantasy play until starter Sergei Bobrovsky (groin) returns from injury.

2/22/2015

Curtis McElhinney, G, CLB

Curtis McElhinney

Jackets' McElhinney To Start Sunday

News: Curtis McElhinney will start in net Sunday against the Rangers.
Analysis: Curtis McElhinney will make his fourth consecutive start between the pipes Sunday, including back-to-back days with Saturday's contest against Montreal. He's been pretty good in his last three contests, and has won two of them. The netminder will look to continue his streak of performances in net, which could come to an end soon with the anticipated return of Sergei Bobrovsky (groin) in the near future.

Curtis McElhinney

Jackets' McElhinney Takes The Loss Saturday

News: Curtis McElhinney made 21 saves Saturday, getting beaten twice by Max Pacioretty in a 3-1 loss to the Canadiens.
Analysis: The Habs' third goal came on an empty net. Curtis McElhinney's won five of his last seven games, with a cool 2.00 GAA and .940 save percentage over that stretch, but his fantasy value is about to collapse with Sergei Bobrovsky (groin) set to resume his starting duties sometime this week.

Curtis McElhinney

Jackets' McElhinney To Start Again Saturday

News: Curtis McElhinney will start Saturday's game against the Canadiens, Shawn Mitchell of The Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Sergei Bobrovsky (groin) is nearing a return, but with the Blue Jackets' top netminder not quite ready, Curtis McElhinney will get another start. The matchup is a tough one, but McElhinney did just beat the Penguins in Pittsburgh, stopping 29-of-30 shots in the process.

McElhinney, Jackets Stun Penguins

News: Curtis McElhinney held strong on 29 of 30 shot attempts and came away with a 2-1 win Thursday against the Penguins.
Analysis: It's not likely that too many people bet on Curtis McElhinney and the mediocre Jackets in a road game against the powerful Penguins, but if they did, they were handsomely rewarded. He's now on a three-game winning streak (and five out of six), and the last two performances have been particularly impressive. However, McElhinney has had a tendency in his career to fall back to earth in a painful manner, and Sergei Bobrovsky (groin) isn't too far from a return to action.

Jackets Going With McElhinney On Thursday

News: Curtis McElhinney will occupy the Columbus net for Thursday's game against Pittsburgh, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Columbus still remains 13 points off the pace for the final Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference, but Curtis McElhinney's competent play in place of Sergei Bobrovsky since late January has kept the team competitive. McElhinney has reeled off wins in four of his last five outings, including a 42-save effort against the Flyers on Tuesday. He's still one of the low-end netminding options in daily leagues for Thursday's slate, but those in formats that start multiple goalies may want to keep McElhinney active in light of his recent play.

McElhinney's 42 Stops Lead Jackets To Win

News: Curtis McElhinney saved 42 of 44 shots Tuesday in a 5-2 victory over Philadelphia.
Analysis: Despite being fired upon 20 more times than opposing counterpart Ray Emery, Curtis McElhinney turned in a terrifically efficient outing -- and his fourth win in the last five starts. He's still just 9-9-1 on the year with so-so rate stats (at best), but things have been trending upward. However, Sergei Bobrovsky (groin) could be back in a week or so.

Curtis McElhinney

Blue Jackets Turn To McElhinney On Tuesday

News: Curtis McElhinney is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Flyers, Jeff Rimer of Fox Sports Ohio reports.
Analysis: Curtis McElhinney continues to fill in for Sergei Bobrovsky, who Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch relays via coach Todd Richards could be back in action by the end of this month.

Curtis McElhinney

Jackets' McElhinney Makes 22 Saves In Win

News: Curtis McElhinney stopped 22 of 25 shots in Friday's win over the Flyers.
Analysis: It wasn't an overly busy night for Curtis McElhinney, who picked up his third win in four games. The 31-year-old has put together a decent season, putting up an 8-9-1 record with a .913 save percentage and 2.84 GAA. With Sergei Bobrovsky (groin) sidelined, McElhinney has taken over the starting role. He's played well enough to warrant a look in some deeper leagues while Bobrovsky remains out.

Curtis McElhinney

Jackets Plan To Start McElhinney On Friday

News: Coach Todd Richards confirmed Curtis McElhinney would be in the crease for Friday's tilt with the Flyers, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Richards has yet to decide on a starter for Saturday's match on Long Island, but if Curtis McElhinney is able to turn in a credible outing Friday and doesn't face a barrage a shots, the coach will more than likely stick with him. After submitting a string of rotten performances during Sergei Bobrovsky's first stint on injured reserve this season, McElhinney has been much sharper during his current stint as the No. 1 goalie with Bobrovsky sidelined by a groin ailment. Since claiming primary duties on Jan. 27, McElhinney has gone a respectable 3-3-0 with a 2.55 GAA and a .926 save percentage.

McElhinney Stops 40 In Loss

News: Curtis McElhinney made 40 saves but still lost 4-3 to the Kings on Monday.
Analysis: It was a valiant effort by Curtis McElhinney, but the Kings simply overwhelmed him with 44 shots. He's filled in admirably for the injured Sergei Bobrovsky, but the 31-year-old sports an unsightly 2.84 GAA on the season.

2/9/2015

Curtis McElhinney, G, CLB

Curtis McElhinney

Jackets' McElhinney To Start Monday

News: Curtis McElhinney will start in net Monday against the Kings, Jeff Rimer of Fox Sports Ohio reports.
Analysis: Curtis McElhinney allowed just one goal in each of the last two games, receiving a win in both contests of a back-to-back Friday and Saturday. He's back in net again Monday, and will likely continue to receive most of the looks in net until Sergei Bobrovsky (groin) returns.

Jackets' McElhinney: 34 Saves, Second-Straight Win

News: Curtis McElhinney stopped 34 shots in a 4-1 win over the Senators on Saturday night.
Analysis: He made a huge pad save on Clarke MacArthur and got help from his posts. But a win is a win, and it's especially sweet against your former team. He has won two straight and three of his last five.
