Elliott is slated to start Saturday's game against the Blue Jackets, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Moreover, Korac relays via coach Ken Hitchcock that Elliott is in line to see the majority of the Blues' starts heading into playoffs, noting that Hitchcock rewarded Jake Allen for his strong game in Detroit last Sunday with another start in Pittsburgh on Tuesday.

Elliott was yanked after allowing four goals on 16 shots in a 6-3 loss to the Wild on Saturday.
This was Elliott's third consecutive start as coach Ken Hitchcock was rewarding him for allowing just a single goal in the previous two starts against Winnipeg and Calgary. Despite strong ratios (.921 save percentage, 2.16 GAA), Elliott has been rather inconsistent at times and as such hasn't fully taken over the starting duties in St. Louis this season. Jake Allen is starting Sunday against Detroit, and if he plays well, it's anybody's guess who'll get the keys to the crease in the games that follow. Owners of both will want to keep a close eye on things.

Elliott will be between the pipes for Saturday's game against the Wild, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Elliott's strong career numbers against the Wild (6-1-0, 1.94 GAA, two shutouts in nine appearances) likely guided coach Ken Hitchcock's decision to stick with his No. 1 netminder for Saturday's contest. With the Blues beginning their four-game road trip with a back-to-back set, backup goalie Jake Allen will get the call Sunday in Detroit while Elliott rests.

Elliott stopped 33 of 34 shots Thursday, but took a shootout loss to the Jets.
A tough one for Elliott, but he can't be perfect every game. He's still given up just four goals in his last four starts -- though he's just 2-1-1 in that span -- and remains one of the finest goaltending assets in the league.

Elliott will be in the crease for Thursday's game against the Jets, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Elliott has alternated shutouts with stinkers over his last four games, but has still been able to come away with the win three times. On the whole, he's been spectacular this season with a 24-11-2 record, 2.11 GAA, and .922 save percentage, making it worthwhile to ride with him through his occasional spells of inconsistency. He should make for an above-average option in goal for the Thursday slate.

Elliott stopped all 25 shots the Flames sent his way Tuesday in a 4-0 victory -- his fifth shutout of the season.
Elliott's been rather inconsistent dating back to the All-Star break -- he's allowed one or zero goals eight times in 18 appearances, but has also allowed three or four goals nine times in that span. He's got two shutouts in his last three games, but they're sandwiching Saturday's unimpressive effort in a loss to Minnesota. Overall, however, his numbers on the season remain quite strong, so it's inadvisable to sit him down. He's actually been better on the road than at home this year, and the Blues are away for their next four games.

Elliott is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Flames, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Elliott, who surrendered three goals on 19 shots in Saturday's loss to the Wild, thus returns to the Blues' net Tuesday after giving way to Jake Allen in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Stars. Overall, Elliott has recorded a 2.17 GAA to go along with a .920 save percentage in 39 appearances for the Blues this season.

Elliott gave up three goals on 19 shots in Saturday's loss to the Wild.
Not the best night for Elliott, who had won his previous three games, allowing just five goals in that span. He falls to 23-11-2 on the season with a .920 save percentage and 2.17 GAA. Considering his stellar play this season, we'd chalk this one up as a bad outing and move on. He's good enough to be an automatic roll every game he gets the nod.

Elliott will be in the crease for Saturday's game against the Wild, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Elliott will make his fifth consecutive start for the Blues Saturday against Minnesota. He's been excellent of late, racking up five wins in his last six starts and surrendering one or zero goals in four of those contests. He'll take on a Wild team that averages 2.82 goals scored per game, good for tenth best in the NHL.

Elliott matched zeroes with opposing netminder Steve Mason for 65 minutes Thursday, stopping 28 shots and then two more in the shootout for a 1-0 win.
A very sharp bounceback from Tuesday's miserable outing against Winnipeg. That misstep aside, he's been excellent of late, with five wins in his last six starts; he's given up one or zero goals in five of those games.
