Brian Elliott, starting in net for the Blues for the first time since goaltender Ryan Miller was acquired in a blockbuster trade with Buffalo a few days ago, needed to make only 17 saves in regulation and overtime before St. Louis took a 3-2 shootout win over the Wild in Minnesota Sunday night.

Elliott reminded his coaches that he isn't a bad netminder himself. His GAA is now 2.08. His save percentage, .917.

Brian Elliott understands that he won't get much playing time down the stretch with Ryan Miller on the Blues' roster.

"We've got a great goalie in 'Millsie' coming in and I think St. Louis is excited about it," said Elliott. "I have thought a lot about (playing time). I haven't really talked to the coaching staff about it, but like I always say, when you have that opportunity you have to make the most of it. ... It's a tough stretch those last 20 games. So I'll get to play, too, and I want to get there and do the best I can, and showcase what I have and try to get some wins for the team." Miller is a workhorse netminder and the Blues will give him plenty of starts in their pursuit of the Presidents' Trophy.

Brian Elliott is unlikely to be a member of the St. Louis Blues after this season.

The Blues will probably try to re-sign Ryan Miller, who is "very open" to staying with the team after he was acquired from Buffalo last Friday. Elliott is eligible to be an unrestricted free agent in the summer and Jake Allen's contact turns into a one-way deal in 2014-15. If the pieces fall into place then Elliott will be playing elsewhere next season.

Brian Elliot blocked 18 of 19 shots in St. Louis' 1-0 loss to Anaheim Friday evening at Honda Center.

Jaroslav Halak had been scheluded to start, but he was traded to Buffalo before the game so Elliot got the start and played well. Elliot now has a 15-5-2 record with a fantastic 2.08 GAA and .917 save percentage. The Blues traded Ryan Miller from Buffalo so this means that Elliot's playing time will likely be minimal for the remainder of the season. Elliot had a interesting backup against the Ducks: Jeff Tyni, a Ducks' locker room attendant.
