Blues goalie Brian Elliott excelled Monday night, kicking out 31 shots en route to a 3-2, series-deciding victory over the Chicago Blackhawks in St. Louis.

Elliott gave up five goals in Game 6 but he had a first-rate series overall, going 4-3 over the defending Stanley Cup champions and posting a goals-against average of 2.40. He also finished the series with a .929 save percentage. It won't be easy for Elliott against the offensively talented Dallas Stars in the next round but, at 31, he may just be poised to turn in a memorable series and it might not be a bad idea to consider using him for at least a couple of games in one-night fantasy play.
