Elliott saved 30 of 31 shots, then two out of three in the shootout to come away with a 2-1 win over Winnipeg on Thursday.
Elliott had uncharacteristically dropped two straight in ugly fashion, but it looks like a little extra time off helped him get right. He's now made 32 starts -- which isn't a lot, but it's still the most he's made since 2011-12.

Since making an appearance in the All-Star Game, Elliott's performance has seemed to dip considerably. Over his nine outings since the midseason showcase, Elliott is 5-4-0 with a 3.34 GAA and .896 save percentage. Don't be surprised if Thursday's game turns into a high-scoring affair, as opposing goalie Michael Hutchinson has had his own struggles since the break, letting in four or more goals in six of his last nine turns.

Elliott gave up four goals on 29 shots in Saturday's loss to the Penguins.That's back-to-back poor outings from Allen, who has lost two straight games, allowing seven goals in that span. While his 18-9-2 record remains impressive, Jake Allen has been playing lights out lately, so perhaps the youngster will see some more starts if Elliott continues to struggle. Don't be worried about Elliot, though, as his .919 save percentage and 2.26 GAA are among the league's best.

Elliott will make his next start in goal Saturday against the Penguins, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.The Blues will give Elliott an extra day to think about the dud he submitted Tuesday against the Stars, when he was pulled nine minutes in after allowing three goals on six shots. Backup Jake Allen, who has been quite effective lately, will get the nod for Friday's outing against the Bruins, leaving Elliott for the second half of the team's back-to-back set. Elliott has looked less sharp since the All-Star break, but still enjoys a fair level of job security over Allen.

Elliott allowed three goals on six shots and was pulled just 8:38 into Tuesday's loss to Dallas.A surprisingly ugly outing for Elliott against the Tyler Seguin-less Stars, as he gave up the first two goals of Jamie Benn's hat trick in the first 8:18, then gave up another goal to Cody Eaking just 20 seconds later to get the yank. Elliott's been on a surprising stretch of inconsistent play since the All-Star break, having given up fewer than three goals only two times in eight starts. It doesn't help that the St. Louis defense has been much more porous of late.

Elliott will be between the pipes Tuesday against Dallas, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.Elliott is coming off of an impressive 40 save win on Sunday against the Panthers, and has bounced back with consecutive wins after a mini slump. Dallas is one of the highest scoring offenses, but without the injured Tyler Seguin and with the way Elliott has performed this season, he's still worth starting for fantasy owners.

Elliott made 40 saves on 41 shots in Sunday's 2-1 shootout win over the Panthers.Elliott very nearly earned the shutout, but he wasn't able to fully withstand the 21-shot onslaught he faced in the third period, as the Panthers tied the score with just over a minute remaining in regulation. It's his second straight win after a pair of shaky outings as the 29-year-old appears to be back on track. Elliott's 2.10 GAA is third best among starting goalies, so keep him rolling whenever he's in net.

Elliott will start in goal Sunday against the Panthers, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.Elliott has already been stuck with two regulation losses this month after going 6-0-1 with a 2.04 GAA and .919 save percentage in eight January outings. However, two of his three wins so far in February have come against the league's top scoring offense (Tampa Bay), and he'll make for an appealing option Sunday against a Panthers that ranks 25th in the NHL in goals per game.
