Elliott was ineffective Saturday against the Hurricanes. He allowed three goals on 10 shots and was relieved by Jake Allen.
Coach Ken Hitchcock yanked him because he was shaky and so was the team in front of him. The move worked and allowed the Blues get back in the game. It might just be a blip, but Allen was great in relief and could steal time from Elliott.

Elliott will get the start in goal Saturday against the Hurricanes, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Elliott will make the fourth straight start for the Blues after leading the team to the win in the previous three contests. He's been the beneficiary of a total of 20 goals over those games, but to his credit, his ratios have been strong. That's essentially been the case with Elliott all season, making him an outstanding play just about any time he's set to take the net.

Elliott beat the Sharks by a 7-2 score for the second time in the last week on Thursday, stopping 24 of 26 shots this time.
About the only difference between this game and the weekend's 7-2 whipping of the Sharks was that Elliott had to make six more saves. He's now won three games in a row, posting strong ratios as usual, and the Blues have supported him with 20 goals in that time. How much more can a fantasy owner ask for?

Elliott will be between the pipes for Thursday's game against the Sharks, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Elliott will make his third straight start Thursday, which leaves little doubt that he has taken over as the Blues' primary goaltender. Elliott has played well since returning to action in late December, giving up just five goals in three games and posting a .944 save percentage.

Elliott turned aside 23 shots in a 6-0 rout of the Coyotes on Tuesday.
Despite how well Elliott's played, this represents only his second shutout of the season -- though of course he missed significant time to injury. He's now taken over the NHL's GAA lead (1.80) and is just three ticks behind Michael Hutchinson's league-best .936 save percentage.

Elliott has been confirmed as the starter for Tuesday's game against Arizona, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Elliott started the Blues' last game Saturday against San Jose and allowed two goals on 20 shots as St. Louis cruised to a 7-2 victory. He's 9-5-1 on the season with a rock solid .930 save percentage and 1.91 GAA. Elliott has established himself as one of the NHL's top fantasy goaltenders and faces an Arizona team Tuesday that ranks 25h in goals per game (2.3).

Elliott turned away 18 of 20 shots in Saturday's blowout win over the Sharks.
Elliott is now 9-5-1 on the season with an impressive .930 save percentage and 1.91 GAA. He hasn't lost back-to-back games in regulation this season, making him one of the most reliable and consistent netminders around. He has stopped 62 of 67 shots in two games since returning from a knee injury and should be in your lineup every night he gets the nod.

Elliott will start Saturday's game against the Sharks, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Martin Brodeur will get the call Friday in Anaheim, while Elliot returns to action Saturday. In his last outing, he allowed three goals, stopping 44 of 47 shots, in a 3-2 loss to the Predators.

Elliott was tasked with facing 47 shots in his first game back from IR on Tuesday, and though he impressively stopped 44 of them, it wasn't enough in a 3-2 loss to Nashville.
The Preds offered Elliott a rude welcome back to game action after he missed more than a month with a knee injury, but the important thing for the veteran's fantasy owners is that he got through this one healthy and looked sharp despite facing a barrage of shots. Thanks to the injury absence, this actually marks the first time Elliott's given up more than two goals in a game since Nov. 3 against the Rangers.
