Brian Elliott allowed one goal on 14 shots in relief of Jaroslav Halak on Sunday.
Obviously, it wasn't his fault that the St. Louis Blues lost to the Washington Capitals 4-1 on Sunday, then. He hasn't lost yet in regulation in 2013-14 and probably made an argument for a future start or two.

Brian Elliott gave up two goals on 20 shots in the Blues' 4-2 win over the Hurricanes on Saturday night.
Elliott hasn't gotten too much work this season, as this was just his fifth game, his first since Nov. 7. But Jaroslav Halak, who will start Sunday, hasn't exactly been that great, with a .887 save percentage over his last five games (and a 2.31 goals-against average and .907 save percentage overall). Maybe Elliott and his 2.04 goals-against average and .920 save percentage will draw some more starts in the near future if Halak doesn't hit his stride soon.

Brian Elliott saved all 31 Panthers shots in a 4-0 victory Friday night.
It was Elliott's 22nd career shutout. He's either one of the best in the NHL or one of the worst, but rarely anything in between. That makes this shutout particularly encouraging for those that like to ride the hot hand, but we'll have to wait and see if the Blues feel comfortable with starting him again on Saturday.
