And just like that, Elliott's 11-game winning streak comes to an end. It's also his first regulation loss in his last 14 games (Last: Feb 5 vs NYR).

Brian Elliott should get the start in goal for Calgary Sunday.

The netminder has won 10 straight and is 14-1-1 in his last 16, and is showing Flames fans why Calgary dealt for him in the off-season. He got off to a horrible start at 3-9-1 and is now 22-13-3 this season. He is a must-start, even against Jonathan Quick if coach Glen Gulutzan goes with the red-hot and healthy Elliott.

Brian Elliott blocked 32 shots and let three pass in regulation, but he was perfect in the shootout to give the Flames a 4-3 win over the Penguins.

Elliott has been the decision maker in nine of those 10 games, giving up only 1.6 goals per. He was coming off back-to-back shutouts against the Canadiens and Jets, so his .914 save percentage might have been a little disappointing. The win ameliorates any negative considerations.
