Brian Elliott lost his second game in a row on Saturday after seeing a five-game winning streak end, but it's tough to pin the blame on him in the Calgary Flames' 2-1 shootout loss to the Edmonton Oilers.
Elliott stopped 26 out of 27 shots, only losing thanks to the shootout. Whatever way you slice it, Elliott sure seems like he's back to form after returning to action in mid-December. The Flames will have to battle to stay in the West picture, but the goalie competition between Elliott and Chad Johnson can only do them good. Fantasy owners have to hope one side wins; right now, slight advantage: Elliott. Jan 15 - 1:07 AM

Date:

Brian Elliott will face the Edmonton on Saturday.

The veteran netminder has been much better over his last six games. Elliott has posted a 5-1 record with an .899 save percentage and just 13 goals against in that span.
Jan 14 - 2:21 PM

There is a good chance that Brian Elliott will get the start against the Oilers in the Battle of Alberta Saturday night.

That said, Elliott is coming off a 4-2 loss in which he allowed four goals on only 13 shots. Chad Johnson, on the other hand, looked good in a 2-1 loss to New Jersey Friday night in which he stopped 34 shots and was the game's second star. Tough call here.
Jan 14 - 12:18 PM

Brian Elliot allowed four goals on just 13 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Vancouver Canucks.

The Flames outshot the Canucks 46-13 but Miller far outplayed Elliott in this one. Elliott came into the game riding a five-game winning streak, but he reverted to the goaltender we saw in the earlier portions of the season in this one. Of all goalies having played at least 15 games, Elliott's .889 save percentage ranks the worst. Look for Chad Johnson to be in goal for the rematch against Vancouver tomorrow night in Calgary.
Jan 7 - 1:30 AM

Brian Elliott will be the Flames' starter on Friday.

Elliott lost the number one job to Chad Johnson due to his early season struggles, but he's bounced back in a big way. Elliott is on a personal five-game winning streak and is getting his fifth start in Calgary's last six games.
Jan 6 - 5:35 PM

Brian Elliott was perfect until the 18:35 minute mark of the third period when he gave up a late goal, but he led the Calgary Flames to a 4-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche Wednesday night.

Elliott was practically untested facing only four goals in the first period and seven in the second and third, so he was unprepared for Patrick Wiercioch’s shot as the clock was winding down. A win is a win, however, and this was Elliott’s fifth consecutive. Notably, it came on the heels of an eight-game losing streak from October 30th through December 14th.
Jan 5 - 1:25 AM

Brian Elliott is expected to start Wednesday night.

That would be Elliott's fourth start in Calgary's last five games. He had a rocky beginning to the 2016-17 campaign, but he's won his last four games while allowing just eight goals in that span.
Jan 4 - 1:43 PM

Flames coach Glen Gulutzan thinks Brian Elliott is settling into his new life in Calgary.

"For me, I think the biggest thing is his adjustment to being on a new team, in a new city, different family life adding a young boy," Gulutzan said of Elliott, whose wife had a baby in October. "I think now, I see him settling in. That comfort is confidence, as well. He’s always put in the work and now I think he’s got everything aligned." Calgary acquired Elliott over the summer in the hope that he would be the team's new starting goaltender. That didn't initially work out as Elliott struggled out of the gate. However, Elliott's now on a four-game winning streak where he's allowed just eight goals. If the adjustment period is indeed over then he could be due for a strong second half to 2016-17.

Brian Elliott is now on a four-game winning streak as the Calgary Flames beat the Arizona Coyotes 4-2 on Saturday.

Even with this nice run, Elliott's overall record is still shaky at 7-9-1 in 2016-17. His individual stats remain quite rough in a 3.01 GAA and .893 save percentage. The Flames are rolling with Elliott now, as Chad Johnson is on a four-game losing streak. Johnson's last three starts came on Dec. 29., Dec. 20 and Dec. 16.
Jan 1 - 5:02 AM

Brian Elliott will face the Arizona on Saturday.

Believe it or not, but the veteran netminder has won each of his last three starts with just six goals against in that time. Considering how much the Coyotes have struggled this season, this could be another win for Elliott to build his momentum with.
Sat, Dec 31, 2016 01:29:00 PM

Brian Elliott faced only 28 shots and let three get past him, but it was enough to lift the Calgary Flames to a 6-3 win over the Colorado Avalanche Tuesday night.

Elliott recorded a save percentage of .893 in this contest, which almost exactly matches his season mark. This was a disappointment to fantasy players nonetheless because it was the first time in the past five games that Elliott was below the .920 mark.
Wed, Dec 28, 2016 12:26:00 AM

Brian Elliott will start for the third time in four games Tuesday night against Colorado.

He has won his last two outings, while allowing just three goals on 42 shots. Elliott has a 5-9-1 record with a 3.07 goals-against average and an .890 save percentage this season.
Tue, Dec 27, 2016 03:30:00 PM

Brian Elliot stopped 13 of 14 shots in a 4-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Friday.

A couple of average starts from Chad Johnson has opened the door up for Brian Elliot to make two starts in the last three games for the Flames, giving up just three goals. It will be interesting to see who the Flames will turn to when they come out of their Christmas break Tuesday against the Avalanche. We still consider Chad Johnson as the starter in goal for the Flames, but this situation is far from ideal for fantasy managers.
Sat, Dec 24, 2016 12:33:00 AM

Brian Elliott will play between the pipes Friday night.

It will be Elliott's second start in three games. He's struggled this season, but this is a chance for him to build off his 4-2 victory over Arizona on Monday.
Fri, Dec 23, 2016 02:33:00 PM

Brian Elliott faced 26 shots and gave up two goals as the Calgary Flames defeated the Arizona Coyotes 4-2 Monday night.

Through two periods, the shots on goal were almost even with 17 for Arizona and 19 for Calgary, but it was the tale of two periods. The Coyotes’ Mike Smith went 11:45 minutes in the first period without a shot, but Elliott had an even easier second and did not face his first shot until there was only 1:36 remaining. He was tested again in the third, including a 1:46 minute period when he faced a five on three situation. This was only his third win of the season in 13 games, but his save percentage Monday night of .926 was the fourth time this season that he was north of .925.
