Elliott stopped 24 of 28 shots in Monday's 4-3 preseason loss to the Bruins.

EDGE Analysis

The 33-year-old seems set as the Flyers' No. 1 netminder to begin the season with Michal Neuvirth (groin) once again less than 100 percent, but Elliott's numbers have taken a significant downturn since he left the Blues following the 2015-16 campaign. If he once again struggles in a starting role, a healthy Neuvirth -- or even top prospect Carter Hart -- could quickly push Elliott aside.

Elliott will defend the crease against the Bruins on Monday, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Elliott should start the season as the No. 1 in the City of Brotherly Love, he will likely be on a short leash, as the team could decide to go with Michal Neuvirth (groin) if the University of Wisconsin product struggles.

Elliott (abdomen) will get the starting nod for Wednesday's preseason clash with the Rangers, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Elliott dealt with persistent issues last season related to a core muscle injury, but appears to be back to 100 percent. The netminder may not log the full 60 minutes, with Carter Hart dressing to take any available ice time if Elliott doesn't go the whole way.

Elliott will undergo an exam Wednesday night to determine whether a "cleanout medical procedure" is required following his core muscle surgery from mid-February, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Elliott made a valiant return from his initial procedure for the final two games of the regular season, but he was rocked during the conference quarterfinals against the Penguins, as evidenced by a 1-3-0 record, 4.74 GAA and .856 save percentage and despite stealing Game 2 on the road. It's too early to know whether Elliott will be ready for training camp, but this follow-up examination should shed light on his official status.

Elliott made 14 saves on 17 shots Wednesday against the Penguins. He was pulled after 28:04 and took the loss in a 5-0 Game 4 defeat.

EDGE Analysis

This is the second time Elliott has gotten the hook in this series, and one time he allowed five goals and was left in the net for the whole game. The difference is this time he was replaced by a healthy Michal Neuvirth. It wouldn't be surprising to see Neuvirth get the start in Game 5.

Elliott will be in the blue paint for Wednesday's Game 4 against Pittsburgh, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Down 2-1 to the Penguins, this First Round series has seen Jekyl and Hyde performances from Elliott. In a Game 2 victory, Elliott turned away 34 of 35 shots, but in his two losing efforts, the first-year Flyer allowed five goals in each contest while posting a horrendous .778 save percentage. Philadelphia can be expected to play with desperation out of the gate in Game 4, but with Elliott's inconsistency thus far, it'll be difficult to justify his presence in fantasy lineups.

Elliott made 21 saves on 26 shots in a 5-1 Game 3 loss to the Penguins on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

That's the second time in this series that Elliott has allowed five goals, although this time at least he wasn't yanked from the game. Three of Pittsburgh's tallies came on the power play, which is not surprising given that the Flyers had the 29th-ranked penalty kill. This is a bad matchup for a team that struggles to kill penalties, and that doesn't bode well for Elliott.

Elliott will be the home starter for Game 3 against the Penguins on Sunday, Jonathan Bombulie of TribLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

After a remarkable outing in Game 2 when Elliott steered away 34 of 35 shots to even the series 1-1. This was a night and day difference from the goalie that showed up to Game 1 and allowed five goals on 19 shots, and it appeared as if Elliott benefited from the nod of confidence from his coach. Despite the solid outing, the Penguins still have an extremely dynamic offense that will be looking to avenge Friday's embarrassing loss, so Elliott is still a risky fantasy pick.

Elliott stopped 34 of 35 shots in a 5-1 victory over the Penguins in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference first round Friday night.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran goaltender honestly couldn't have bounced back any better after he allowed five goals on 19 shots in Game 1. Elliott looked much more comfortable Friday than he did Wednesday, rewarding his coach for trusting him. Elliott looked shaky on one shot early, but he was fortunate the puck rang out off the post. In the second period, Elliott stopped several high-danger chances, including a breakaway attempt from Sidney Crosby. This is type of play the Flyers need from Elliott if they are going to knock off the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions.

Elliott will indeed get the start for Friday's Game 2 against the Penguins, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Elliott posted a disastrous showing in Game 1 that resulted in him being pulled from the contest during the second period after he surrendered five goals on 19 shots to the Flyers' cross-state rivals. Petr Mrazek, who replaced Elliott on Wednesday, will return to the backup role Friday after stopping 12 of the 14 shots he faced in the 7-0 rout. However, Elliott will likely have a shorter leash this time around as the Flyers look to avoid a 2-0 deficit in the opening-round matchup.
