It looks like the Flyers will stick with Brian Elliott in Game 5 on Friday.
Elliott was pulled from Game 4 after allowing three goals on 17 shots en route to a 5-0 loss. This has been a rough series for him as he has a 4.75 GAA and .856 save percentage in four starts. He's far from the only Flyers player that's left something to be desired though. Apr 20 - 2:14 PM

Brian Elliott got pulled after allowing three goals on 17 shots in Wednesday's 5-0 Game 4 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Kris Letang's shot took a deflection off of Andrew MacDonald's stick before finding its way into the net. Elliott looked visibly frustrated after that goal and it forced head coach Dave Hakstol to pull him in favor of Michal Neuvirth. Heading back to Pittsburgh down 3-1 in the series, the Flyers will have to think long and hard who they want to put in goal in a do-or-die game.
Apr 18 - 9:41 PM

Brian Elliott is expected to get the nod in Game 4 against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday night.

Elliott and the Flyers will look to avoid going down 3-1 in the series. The 33-year-old has a 1-2 record with a 4.43 goals-against-average and a .863 save percentage during the postseason.
Apr 18 - 6:21 PM

Brian Elliott surrendered five goals on 26 shots in a 5-1 loss to Pittsburgh on Sunday afternoon in Game 3.

Elliott was great in Friday's win after he was lit up in Game 1 by the Penguins, but he wasn't able to build on that effort. He has allowed 11 goals on 80 shots in Philadelphia's first-round series against Pittsburgh.
Apr 15 - 6:02 PM

Brian Elliott will be between the pipes on Sunday as the Flyers entertain the Pittsburgh Penguins.

After a very shaky Game 1, Elliott was great in Game 2 as he stopped 34 shots in a 5-1 win over the Penguins. The Flyers need him to continue to be on his game as Pittsburgh has a lot of firepower up front. Look for another strong effort from Elliott on Sunday.
Apr 15 - 8:48 AM

Brian Elliott turned aside 34 of 35 shots in Friday's 5-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Elliott bounced back in a big way after he was pulled in that ugly Game 1 loss on Wednesday night. His biggest save came in the second period, when he stopped Sidney Crosby's breakaway attempt to preserve the Flyers' 2-0 lead at the time. Elliott looked like he was tracking the puck a lot better in Game 2 than he did in the opening contest of the series. The 33-year-old now owns a 1-1 record with a 4.04 goals-against-average and a .889 save percentage this postseason. The series is now heading to Philadelphia all tied up at one.
Apr 13 - 10:02 PM

Brian Elliott will play between the pipes in Game 2 on Friday.

Elliott was yanked from Game 1 after allowing five goals on 19 shots. Nevertheless, he's going to get a shot to rebound tonight. This isn't too surprising because Flyers coach Dave Hakstol had previously said that starting Elliott again was his first instinct, but until now he hadn't been willing to confirm his choice.
Apr 13 - 5:25 PM

Brian Elliott just wants to shake off Wednesday's blowout loss.

The Flyers' playoff opener was a disaster as they suffered a 7-0 loss to the Penguins. Elliott was pulled from the game midway through the second period after allowing five goals on 19 shots. He's expected to get a shot to bounce back in Game 2 on Friday though. "I just kinda went back to the hotel and tried to get some good rest," Elliott said, referring to what he did after Wednesday's loss. "Then you just refocus and try to come back and have a good skate today. I felt good, felt confident and big in there. That’s all I can do."
Apr 13 - 5:05 AM

Flyers coach Dave Hakstol reiterated that his gut feeling is to start Brian Elliott in Game 2.

Hakstol also express that sentiment immediately following the Flyers' 7-0 loss to Pittsburgh in Game 1. Nothing has been set in stone yet, but it certainly seems like Elliott is very probable to serve as the starter for that contest.
Apr 12 - 3:21 PM

Don't be surprised if the Flyers go back to Brian Elliott for Game 2.

Elliott allowed five goals on just 19 shots in 29:01 minutes of ice time in Game 1 before being yanked. The Penguins went on to beat Philadelphia 7-0. Elliott couldn't have gotten off to a much rougher start to the series, but he's likely to get a chance to bounce back. "Right now, my first instinct is yeah," Flyers coach Dave Hakstol said on starting Elliott again in Game 2. "Coming back with 'Moose' when he was coming off the injury, he’s our guy. He’s a huge reason why our team was able to put ourselves in a position to make the playoffs. I think like everything else, we’ll look hard at it, but right now, my first gut instinct is that’s he’s our guy."

Brian Elliott was pulled in Wednesday's 7-0 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

This isn't how the Flyers wanted to kick off the 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Elliott had only played in two games dating back to Feb. 11 (he was out with a lower-body injury) and it showed, as he allowed five goals on just 19 shots in 29:01 of action. It's still early enough in the series that the Flyers can turn this thing around, but they'll be going home quickly if they don't get their goaltending situation sorted out in a hurry. They currently trail the best-of-seven series 1-0. Petr Mrazek, who entered the game in relief of Elliott, allowed two more goals on 14 shots. Game 2 will be played in Pittsburgh on Friday night.
Apr 11 - 10:24 PM

Brian Elliott is expected to get the start in Game 1 of Philadelphia's first-round series against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The 33-year-old was the only Flyers goaltender that didn't participate in the morning skate on Wednesday. Elliott missed 25 games with a lower-body injury before returning to play the final two games of the regular season (he won those last two games). He finished the year with a 23-11-7 record, a 2.66 goals-against-average and a .909 save percentage.
Apr 11 - 6:14 PM

Brian Elliott is feeling good after getting into the Flyers' last two regular season games.

Elliott was sidelined for nearly two months, so getting a couple starts under his belt before the playoffs was important. Getting his return out of the way on Thursday was particularly helpful. "It's almost like opening night jitters again," Elliott said of the game. "It's always tough coming back. It's always hard to replicate a game in practice. You do things, you're out of breath more than in practice." Elliott was both of his games in his return and stopped all 16 shots to earn a 5-0 victory over the Rangers on Saturday. He'll be the Flyers' go to goaltender in the postseason.
Apr 9 - 5:32 AM

Brian Elliott stopped all 16 shots he faced in a 5-0 loss to the New York Rangers.

The Rangers showed some signs of life in the first period to threaten Elliott but finished the last two periods by combining for just nine shots. It'll be a big confidence booster for Elliott who allowed three soft goals in his first game back from injury against the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday night. The 32-year-old goaltender will finish the regular-season with a 23-11-7 record, a 2.66 goals-against-average and a .909 save percentage.
Apr 7 - 5:58 PM

Brian Elliott will get the start Saturday afternoon against the Rangers in the Flyers' final game of the season.

If the Flyers win, they're in the playoffs. Even if they lose, they have to lose by two goals and Florida has to win twice in overtime to force a playoff game between the two clubs. Elliott will be looking to rebound from a shaky 4-3 win over the Hurricanes this past Thursday in which he allowed three goals on only 22 shots. On the season Elliott has a 22-11-7 record with a 2.73 GAA and a .908 SP.
