Despite yet another loss, Brian Elliott looked very good in the Calgary net Monday.
Elliott is a very weak 3-9-1 with a 3.31 GAA and a .885 save percentage. But if Monday is any indication, Elliott is getting his game back and that can only bode well for the Flames. "Moose was awesome," defenseman Mark Giordano said. "He made some breakaway saves. He made some huge saves late in the game, too, and he looked really calm and composed. I'm really happy for him because the guy works so hard and cares so much so for him to have a big night for us and come and bounce back and play that well, that was nice to see." Elliott is capable of carrying a team so while we can't recommend him at this time, keep him reserved rather than getting rid of him completely. Nov 29 - 6:53 AM

Brian Elliott's difficult season with the Calgary Flames continued Monday night.

The veteran goalie, starting for only the second time in nine games, kicked away 25 Islanders shots but took a 2-1 overtime loss in New York. The former St. Louis Blues' star now has a record of 3-9-1 with Calgary. His goals-against average is 3.31. His save percentage is .885. Stay away from Elliott in fantasy play at least until he gets closer to resembling his old self.

Brian Elliott will play between the pipes on Monday.

Elliott has only made one start in Calgary's last eight games. His status as the team's starting goaltender has been thrown in to question in large part due to his own struggles. He has a 3.43 GAA and .882 save percentage in 12 contests this season.

The battle for Calgary's crease is heating up between Brian Elliott and Chad Johnson.

Elliott's time has been an unmitigated disaster thus far, going 3-9 with 41 goals against and an .882 save percentage in a dozen games. Johnson meanwhile, who has had the crease of late in particular, has gone 6-3-1 with a .922 save percentage and just 21 goals against. He even has two shutouts to boot. At least at this time, the choice is clear between the two netminders.

Calgary goalie Brian Elliott made 28 saves Monday night in a 4-2 loss to the Sabres in Buffalo.

Elliott has now gone six consecutive games without a win. The former St. Louis goalie now has a record of 3-9-0. His goals-against average is 3.43 and his save percentage is .882. With the Blues, Elliott was a reliable fantasy goalie. With the mediocre Flames, it's a different story.
Nov 21 - 10:48 PM

Brian Elliott will be in goal for the Flames Monday night.

It will be his first start since Nov. 12 when he was beaten four times on 28 shots by the New York Rangers. Elliott will be looking to end his five-game losing skid when Calgary visits Buffalo.
Nov 21 - 12:48 PM

Brian Elliott's troubles continued on Saturday as the New York Rangers beat his Calgary Flames by a score of 4-1.

Elliott allowed four goals on 28 shots while Henrik Lundqvist had a strong night at the other end. This marks five straight losses for Elliott, who is now 3-9-0 during a season that has to be greatly hurting his free agent market value. You have to wonder if the Flames will go to Chad Johnson more often if this keeps up.
Nov 13 - 12:56 AM

Brian Elliott will face the Rangers on Saturday night.

It's been a rough go for Elliott, who is 3-7 through 10 starts and is on a four-game losing streak. He hasn't played the Rangers well either over his career, posting a 2-5-1 record with 20 goals against in eight games. You may wish to find a more favorable matchup.
Nov 12 - 1:44 PM

Brian Elliott made 18 saves in Calgary's 4-2 loss to Dallas on Thursday.

That's four straight losses to add to the terrible start to the season for Elliott. He's likely to keep getting the starts though with the Flames investing so much in him and no other real legit options at this point. He brings a 3.30 GAA and .885 save percentage into his next start.
Nov 11 - 2:10 AM

Brian Elliott will play between the pipes on Thursday.

Elliott will be looking to snap his personal three-game losing streak. He's been very inconsistent so far this season and his overall 3.33 GAA and .887 save percentage obviously leaves something to be desired.
Nov 10 - 1:01 PM

The Los Angeles Kings throttled Brian Elliott and the Calgary Flames by a score of 5-0 on Saturday.

Elliott actually made some tough saves early on, but the Kings dominated play with 39 shots on goal. He gave up five goals, including two by Devin Setoguchi, and the Flames seem like they might be in some trouble so far in 2016-17.
Nov 6 - 1:04 AM

Brian Elliott will play between the pipes on Saturday.

Elliott got a breather on Thursday, but this will be his sixth start in seven games. He has a 3.12 GAA and .889 save percentage in eight contests in 2016-17.
Nov 4 - 5:28 PM

Brian Elliott allowed four goals on 21 shots in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Flames forward Michael Frolik tied the game at one in the second period, but Calgary watched as Chicago scored four goals in the third period. After winning three in a row, Elliott has now dropped back-to-back games. He has a 3-5-0 record with a 3.12 goals-against-average and an .889 save percentage this season.
Nov 2 - 12:07 AM

Brian Elliott is expected to start Tuesday night.

Elliott is making his fifth straight start. He has a 2.99 GAA and .898 save percentage in seven starts, but Elliott has allowed just seven goals in his last four contests.
Nov 1 - 2:04 PM

Brian Elliott played well on Sunday night making 26 saves, but the Flames provided him with little offense in a 3-1 loss to Washington.

Elliott stopped 26 of the 28 shots he faced as the 31-year-old continues to repair his numbers after a poor start to the year. Elliott and the Flames will face another tough test on Tuesday when they visit Chicago for a date with the Blackhawks.
