Brian Elliott admitted it was tough for him to finish the season on the bench.
"It's not easy when you play all year and then you're just sitting on the bench and you don't really feel like you can make a difference," he said. "It's always tough for anybody when you're on the outside looking in." He added that the situation was out of his control, so it's not worth dwelling on and he'll be ready next season when he gets his chance to play. Elliott is projected to compete with Jake Allen for starts in 2015-16. Apr 29 - 3:06 PM

Brian Elliott stopped six-of-seven shots in relief of Jake Allen in Sunday's 4-1 elimination loss to Minnesota.

Elliott was relatively good in this game, but Jake Allen's poor play buried the Blues early. The Wild have now won the best-of-seven series four games to two, and many will question St. Louis for bowing out of the playoffs early again.

St. Louis hasn't announced a starting goaltender for Game 1 against Minnesota, but it will probably be Brian Elliott.

"I think you got to really base on who played well against the opposition," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "Some goalies are set up for different type of opposition. We like them both right now, but like I said, 'Ells' has played more against this team and he's played well." Elliott has lost his last two games against the Wild, but before that he had a 6-0 record with a 1.76 goals-against average, a .915 save-percentage and two shutouts versus Minnesota. Jake Allen has been solid against Minnesota as well, with a mark of 1-0, a 2.38 GAA and a .920 save percentage in two appearances.

Brian Elliott helped the St. Louis Blues beat the Minnesota Wild 4-2 on Saturday, also clinching a Nashville Predators - Chicago Blackhawks first-round series in the process.

It seems as if Jake Allen will be the guy in net for St. Louis, but that can change with a few losses. Elliott won his last two games, so that should help him stay reasonably sharp if called upon.

Brian Elliott will try to make his case to be the Blues' starting goalie in the playoffs Saturday afternoon.

Jake Allen has been white hot in his last two starts so Elliott needs to show well against Minnesota to retain his status as the Blues' number one going into the post season. He will have a decent shot at doing just that as the Wild might sit a few players including Ryan Suter. Of course, it is also likely the Blues will sit a number of key players too. In any event, we would start Elliott Saturday.

Brian Elliott will get the start against the Minnesota Wild on Saturday afternoon.

After a pair of sterling starts by Jake Allen, Coach Hitchcock will turn back to his supposed primary netminder. Elliott comes in having posted his best career season in every respect, a 25-14-3 record with a .916 save percentage and a 2.27 GAA through 45 games. He's also pitched five shutouts and 26 Quality Starts.
Apr 10 - 8:08 PM

Brian Elliott earned the victory despite giving up five goals on 31 shots in a 7-5 win over the Dallas Stars Friday night.

Elliott won for the first time in his last five starts and now carries an impressive 25-14-3 record on the season. The Blues only have four games remaining as the jockey for playoff positioning.

Brian Elliott will get the start in goal against the Stars Friday night.

He is currently on a four-game losing streak and would love to rebound against the non-playoff bound Stars. We like Elliot's chances. We advise you start him Friday.
Apr 3 - 1:29 PM

Brian Elliott dropped his fourth straight, and his fifth over his last six starts in Monday's 4-1 loss to Vancouver.

Elliott stopped just 18 shots in the process. While Nick Bonino's goal is forgivable as it took a crazy bounce, Elliott needed to be better on Shawn Mathias and Radim Vrbata's goals. Elliott's record now stands 24-14-3 with a .919 save percentage 2.20 GAA
Mar 31 - 12:12 AM

Brian Elliott will be between the pipes Monday night against the Canucks.

Elliott has dropped his last three decisions giving up a combined eight goals but still has a stellar 2.18 goals-against-average and .920 save percentage in 43 games played this season. He is coming off a rough start where he gave up three goals on 16 shots to the Blue Jackets but he has fared very well in 11 career starts versus the Canucks, posting a 2.08 GAA and .924 save percentage. So maybe this start will get Elliott back to his winning ways.
Mar 30 - 5:04 PM

Brian Elliott had a lousy night in net, giving up three goals in the 4-2 loss to the Blue Jackets on Saturday.

He faced only 16 shots. Elliott has allowed seven goals over his past two games and he’s been very hot and cold lately. It would not be surprising to see Jake Allen get the start Monday at the Canucks. Allen has a 2.18 goals-against average and .920 save percentage this season.
Mar 28 - 10:44 PM

Updating an earlier item, Brian Elliott will indeed get the start Saturday against the Blue Jackets.

He is having a very quiet but excellent season with a 24-12-3 record and a 2.16 GAA and .921 SP. Elliott owns Columbus with a 6-1-1 career record so our advice would be to make sure you activate him before Saturday night's contest.
Mar 28 - 1:34 PM

Brian Elliott will get the start against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night.

Elliott comes in with a 24-12-3 record, a .921 save percentage, and a 2.16 GAA to go along with his five shutouts. He also owns 25 Quality Starts against six Really Bad Starts. In eight career starts versus Columbus, Elliot is 6-1-1 with 18 goals against on 198 combined shots.
Mar 27 - 10:26 PM

Coach Ken Hitchcock attempted to quiet talk of a goalie controversy by saying that Brian Elliott is still the team's number one.

"Ells is the starter," Hitchcock said. "Jake (Allen) got rewarded for an exceptional performance (in a 2-1 overtime loss to Detroit Sunday). We'll go right back to Ells. He'll play the majority of games leading up to the playoffs." Allen has played the last two matches and he picked up a win against Pittsburgh on Tuesday.
Mar 27 - 11:35 AM

Brian Elliott didn't make it through much of Saturday's game between the St. Louis Blues and the Minnesota Wild.

He was pulled from the game 24:05 in after allowing four goals on just 16 shots. It's a rare off game for the Blues netminder, who's been on a nice hot streak lately. Jake Allen took over for him.
