Dan Ellis will get the start against Montreal on Tuesday night.

Ellis has performed admirably for the Panthers during his five games of work this season. He's 3-1-1 with 10 goals against on 141 shots. He also owns three Quality Starts. Ellis has split his two career starts versus Montreal with five goals against, all at even strength, on 38 total shots.
Mar 17 - 5:19 PM

Dan Ellis made 32 saves in the Panthers' tough 2-1 loss to the Rangers on Sunday evening.

The worst part is that the Panthers failed to pick up ground on both the Bruins and Capitals as they faced off against each other. Ellis had another stellar game for the Panthers, making several clutch saves and stymieing the Rangers' attack. The two goals were simply cases of bad luck on tips. Ellis falls to 3-1-1 with 10 goals on 141 shots against in five starts for the Panthers.

Dan Ellis will get the start in Sunday's game against the New York Rangers.

Ellis is coming off a 2-0 shutout win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday night. The 34-year-old has been forced into duty because of injuries to Roberto Luongo and Al Montoya. Ellis has a 3-0-1 record with a 1.92 goals-against-average and a .925 save percentage.
Mar 15 - 3:53 PM

Dan Ellis earned a shutout on 27 saves in the Panthers’ 2-0 win over the Hurricanes on Saturday night.

Ellis has a 3-0-1 record since he became the number-one netminder with the injuries to the Panthers’ top two. The shutout is his first since Feb. 1, 2014. He has a 1.92 goals-against average and .925 save percentage. There’s a chance Roberto Luongo could return Sunday at the Rangers.
Mar 14 - 10:31 PM

Dan Ellis will indeed get the start against the Hurricanes Saturday.

We are just confirming an earlier post as it is clear that Roberto Luongo will not be recovered from a shoulder injury in time to play in this contest. Ellis has played well while subbing in for Luongo (2-0-1 record) and will likely want to put on a good show against one of his former teams.

Dan Ellis will get the start versus the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday night.

Ellis has done well in his three starts thus far with the Panthers. He's won twice while allowing eight goals against on 80 shots. With Roberto Luongo's return imminent, Ellis' fantasy value is quickly drying up.
Mar 13 - 11:18 PM

Dan Ellis turned aside 18 shots in a 4-2 win over Winnipeg on Thursday.

He has posted a 2-0-1 record as the team's starter because of injuries to Roberto Luongo and Al Montoya. Unfortunately, his .900 save percentage and 2.53 goals-against average don't make him a very attractive fantasy option. Luongo could be back soon anyway.
Mar 13 - 9:55 AM

Dan Ellis will be in goal for Thursday's game versus Winnipeg.

In his previous two starts since the Panthers lost Roberto Luongo and Al Montoya to injuries in the same game, Ellis has a 1-0-1 record with a .900 save percentage and a 2.77 goals-against average.
Mar 12 - 9:11 AM

Dan Ellis picked up his first win of the season on Saturday night and he appreciates the opportunity the Panthers have given him.

Ellis has been forced into duty because of injuries to Roberto Luongo and Al Montoya. Luongo isn’t expected to be out long so Ellis’ run as the starting goaltender will surely come to an end soon. "I’ve been able to step into a great situation where I’ve been able to play," said Ellis. "I just want to contribute any way I can right now." The win was a big one for Florida, as they are now just two points behind Boston for the final Wild Card spot in the East.
Mar 8 - 12:30 PM

Dan Ellis made 25 saves in the Panthers’ 4-3 shootout win over the Islanders on Saturday night.

Ellis did just as the Panthers could ask — keep them in the game. Essentially the team’s third goalie, Ellis gave up two in the second and one in the third. In two starts, Ellis has given up six goals and has a 2.77 goals-against average and .900 save percentage. Florida might not get much better than that from him.
Mar 7 - 10:45 PM

Dan Ellis will start for Florida on Saturday.

Ellis made his NHL season debut on Thursday because goaltenders Roberto Luongo and Al Montoya are both sidelined. Ellis turned aside 29 of 32 shots in Thursday's 4-3 shootout loss to Dallas.
Mar 7 - 11:58 AM

Dan Ellis made 29 saves on 32 shots in his first start of the season on Thursday night, a 4-3 shootout loss to Dallas.

Ellis played well as Florida had to turn to the AHLer after both Roberto Luongo and Al Montoya went down in Tuesday's loss to Toronto. Ellis played 14 games for the Stars last season before his trade to Florida.
Mar 6 - 1:23 AM

Dan Ellis will get the nod for Florida on Thursday against Dallas.

In an interesting twist it was a year ago today that Florida acquired Ellis in a trade with the Stars for Tim Thomas. Ellis hasn't seen any NHL action this season.
Mar 5 - 11:16 AM

Dan Ellis has been called up by Florida.

Al Montoya is out with a groin injury that he sustained Tuesday night and the status of Roberto Luongo is uncertain after he suffered an upper-body injury in the same game. Ellis could end up being Florida's starter on Thursday against Dallas.
