Brian Elliott stopped 23 of 24 shots in Calgary's 4-1 win over the St. Louis Blues.
Elliott did extremely well in his first matchup against his former team. Don't look now, but after a poor start, Elliott has seemingly turned things around. He and the Flames have won back-to-back games on the road against Chicago and St. Louis. The 31-year-old's fantasy stock is on the rise. He has a 2-3-0 record with a 3.37 goals-against-average and an .882 save percentage in 2016-17. Elliott's given up just three goals in his last two starts. Oct 26 - 12:26 AM

Brian Elliott will be in goal for the Flames again on Tuesday night.

Fresh off his first win with Calgary on Monday versus Chicago, Elliott will get the call against his former St. Louis teammates.

Brian Elliott collected his first win with Calgary during their 3-2 shoot-out victory over Chicago.

Well, you can't say he didn't earn it. Elliott made 28 of 30 stops through regulation, then all seven in the shoot-out. These are the sort of games that can help turn a season around.

Brian Elliott will face Chicago on Monday night.

Elliott is winless in three games with 14 goals against so far, but with only two games going on Monday you might as well play him.

Former teammate Jake Allen is not concerned with the slow start of Brian Elliott this season.

Allen and Elliott were goaltending partners in St. Louis for the last four seasons so Allen saw Elliott through all his ups and downs before he was dealt to Calgary in the off-season. "I wouldn’t worry one bit. That’s just my perspective," Allen said. "He’s one of the most competitive people I have ever met, and he will find his game very soon. Obviously, he wanted to get off to a good start (in Calgary), that’s first and foremost, but if it doesn’t go that way, he will rebound and find it. I’m 100% about that. I wouldn’t be too concerned if I was a Flames fan." Elliott is winless in three with a 4.72 GAA and a .839 save percentage. Look for him to get the start in goal Tuesday when the Flames meet the Blues yet again.

Brian Elliott struggled again on Thursday, allowing four goals on 32 shots in a 4-2 loss to Carolina.

Elliott has is still win-less to start the season and he has allowed four goals or more in each of his three starts. He will bring his ugly 4.72 GAA and .839 save percentage into his next start where he will hope for his first win. The Flames wrap up a three-game homestand on Saturday when the St. Louis Blues visit.
Oct 21 - 12:35 AM

Brian Elliott is expected to start for Calgary on Thursday.

Elliott was the first goalie off the ice following the morning skate, so that's a good indicator of the Flames' intentions, but it also just seems like a good time to use Elliott. Chad Johnson has started in the last two games and while he did well, Elliott is an important part of the team and the Flames likely want to give him a chance to put those rough outings against Edmonton behind him sooner rather than later.

Brian Elliott will probably be back in the cage for Calgary on Thursday against Carolina.

coach Glen Gulutzan hasn't confirmed a starting goalie yet, but it makes sense to go back to Elliott. He struggled in two starts against the Oilers, but the team needs to get him going after giving Chad Johnson the last two outings.
Oct 19 - 4:11 PM

Brian Elliott stopped 24 of 28 shots in a 5-3 loss to the Oilers on Friday.

Elliott simply hasn't been good enough for the Flames through two games. He has now given up 10 goals in his first two starts, and fantasy owners are reason to be worried. It was highly unlikely he would have been able to replicate his numbers from his time in St. Louis, but he is performing well below expectations to start the year. If he continues like this, it won't be long before the Flames give Chad Johnson a chance to wrestle the starting job from him.
Oct 15 - 12:03 AM

Brian Elliott will start in Friday's game against Edmonton.

Elliott allowed six goals on 27 shots versus the Oilers in the opener, but the Flames are going right back to him. Ultimately, Calgary is hoping that Elliott will be the starter for years to come and this is a demonstration that the Flames won't abandon him at the first sign of trouble.
Oct 13 - 5:45 PM

Brian Elliott will try to turn the page after a rough start to the season.

Elliott stopped just 21 of 27 shots in a 7-4 loss to Edmonton Wednesday night. "The good thing is we get these guys back at home (Friday)," Elliott said of the Oilers. "We’ll get back to the drawing board and we’ll get a win at home. It’s disappointing, but you can’t get hung up on it. It’s one game." The big question is if that's a warning sign of things to come for Elliott. He's recorded a 2.01 GAA and .925 save percentage over the last five seasons, but that was when he was with the St. Louis Blues. Defending the Calgary Flames will be a much more difficult task and it could leave him with a mediocre GAA and save percentage this season.

Brent Elliott gave up six goals in Wednesday night’s 7-4 loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

Patrick Maroon kicked off the carnage for the Oilers in this high-scoring game, but before the night was over Elliott was forced to face 27 shots on goal. With a save percentage of only .778, he cost fantasy players significant points. One other goal for the Oilers was scored in an empty net.
Oct 13 - 1:51 AM

Brian Elliott will make his first start of the season for Calgary on Wednesday against Edmonton.

Elliott owns a 9-3-0 record against the Oilers in his career with a 2.25 GAA and a .908 save percentage.

Brian Elliott stopped 21 goals Wednesday night in the Calgary Flames 2-1 victory over the Arizona Coyotes.

Elliott stood tall in the net with a .955 save percentage. Last year he recorded a .930 with the St Louis Blues before getting traded to the Flames for the 35th draft pick. Elliott played the entire game, recording 65 minutes between the pipes.
Oct 6 - 12:14 AM

Brian Elliott will play between the pipes for the Calgary Flames on Friday.

It's important to note that the plan is for Tyler Parsons to enter the game before its conclusion to get in some work as well, so it won't be surprising when Elliott doesn't finish the game. Elliott's warming up for his first campaign with Calgary after being acquired from St. Louis over the summer.
