Jaroslav Halak didn't make it out of the first period Friday night in the Blues' 5-3 loss to the Red Wings.
Halak made just nine saves on 11 shots. Brian Elliott came on in relief and set aside 17 of 19 shots. Halak has a 2.10 goals-against average and .889 save percentage on the season. Elliot has a 2.34 mark and .900 save percentage. Neither has played nearly as well as they did last season.
