Date:

Brian Elliott will be the starting goalie Saturday night when the Flyers host the Washington Capitals.

Elliott is coming off a pretty lousy effort against the Predators this past Tuesday in which he allowed six goals on 31 shots. Until then, Elliott was doing quite well. Overall he sports a 2-1-0 record with a 3.67 GAA and an .876 SP.

Brian Elliott allowed six goals on 31 shots in Tuesday's 6-5 loss to the Nashville Predators.

Philadelphia was down 3-0 in the second period, but they scored five consecutive goals to go up 5-3 in the third frame. Unfortunately for Philadelphia, they fell apart as Nashville scored the last three goals of the game. The loss was Elliott's first as a member of the Flyers. He now has a 2-1-0 record with a 3.67 goals-against-average and a .876 save percentage this season.

Brian Elliott will be between the pipes Tuesday versus Nashville.

This will be Elliott's second straight appearance in the crease following a 3-2 overtime win over Anaheim on Saturday. He has a 2-0-0 record with a 2.50 goals-against average and a .914 save percentage.
Oct 10 - 1:10 PM

Brian Elliott stopped 21 of 23 shots in a 3-2 overtime win against Anaheim on Saturday.

Elliott has two victories in two starts with the Flyers to start the 2017-18 season. He has a 2.50 goals-against average and a .914 save percentage so far with his new team.
Oct 8 - 1:14 AM

It is not clear if Brian Elliott will get the start Saturday night against the Ducks.

Elliott played well in a 5-3 win over the Sharks Wednesday night, but Michal Neuvirth was also quite good in a 2-0 loss to the Kings the next night stopping 25 of 27 shots. Until there is an official word out of the Philly offices, we would assume Elliott gets the start, but don't bank on it.
Oct 7 - 10:52 AM

Brian Elliott turned aside 32 of the 35 shots he faced in Wednesday's road victory in San Jose.

After posting 26 victories last season in Calgary, Elliott moves to the City of Brotherly Love to ply his trade. He has managed at least two shutouts in each of his past six NHL campaigns and gives the Flyers their most steady netminder in quite some time. Elliott has averaged 25 wins in each of the past three seasons and there is no reason to believe he won't be able to meet or exceed those expectations again in 2017-18.
Oct 5 - 2:40 AM

Brian Elliott will get the nod in Wednesday's game against the San Jose Sharks.

This will be Elliott's first game as a member of the Philadelphia Flyers. The 32-year-old had a 26-18-3 record with a 2.55 goals-against-average and a .910 save percentage this season.
Oct 4 - 8:52 PM

Brian Elliott had a forgettable evening in the crease during the Flyers' 5-2 preseason loss to the Islanders.

Elliott allowed four goals on 21 shots, which isn't a good sign for the 32-year-old who started last season dreadfully. If Elliott plays like he did in the second half of last season, however, he should take the starting job in Philadelphia.
Oct 1 - 10:34 PM

Brian Elliott stopped all 18 shots he faced in his preseason debut with Philadelphia on Thursday.

Elliott was playing in the first two periods of the Flyers' 2-1 overtime loss to Boston. It's just a first step for Elliott and we wouldn't read too much into preseason action, but it's still good to see him do well as he settles in with Philadelphia. "Yeah, it felt pretty good," Elliott said. "Just trying to see pucks and basically get acclimated in a game situation. We haven’t seen that in camp at all. So playing a game is fun, to get back in there, you forget how actually fun it is to play a game." Elliott is coming off an up-and-down season with Calgary where he posted a 2.55 GAA and .910 save percentage in 49 contests.
Sep 22 - 10:45 AM

Brian Elliott is hoping that his successful second half of last season with Calgary translates over to his upcoming season with Philadelphia.

After a slow start, Elliott and the Flames were able to regroup enough to make the playoffs. This summer, Elliott signed a two-year contract with the Flyers, and he's hoping to make an impact with his new team right away. "I felt real good from the middle to the end of the season in Calgary, and I want to continue that feeling," said Elliott. "You feel confident and feel that, no matter what, you can make that save. When you have that feeling and that confidence back there, then the guys can go and do their job." He'll have some fantasy value, but he may not see enough starts to be a solid starting goalie on your team.
Sep 9 - 4:58 PM

Brian Elliott has signed a two-year/$5.5 million contract with the Philadelphia Flyers.

Elliott will battle Michal Neuvirth and Anthony Stolarz for the starting gig in net with the Flyers. Elliott had an up-and-down season with Calgary last season as he started very slowly, going 3-9-1 but turned it on big time during the middle of the season as he finished the season with a 26-18-3 record as well as a 2.55 GAA and a .910 save percentage. Look for 40-45 starts in Philly for the netminder and draft him in the late middle rounds in deeper pools.
Jul 1 - 12:19 PM

It appears Brian Elliott may be heading to the Philadelphia Flyers on a three year deal worth $2.75 million per season.

Elliott was heavily linked to Winnipeg earlier in the week, so it's a bit of surprise to see a deal in place with the Flyers. It would be a lateral move for him, seeing as he would be sharing the crease with Michal Neuvirth in Philadelphia. Elliott has shown flashes of being a true #1 goaltender in the past, but he's yet to put it together over the course of an entire season. He is one of the top free-agent goaltenders that will hit the open market on July 1st.
Jun 29 - 7:29 PM

Brian Elliott has been linked to the Winnipeg Jets for several week.

TSN 1290's Rick Ralph reported on Monday that Elliott was "making tentative accommodation plans for Winnipeg," but Elliott's agent refused to comment on which teams have contacted him. If the Jets were able to bring Elliott on board then he would either share action with Connor Hellebuyck or serve as an insurance option.
Jun 27 - 10:32 AM

Flames GM Brad Treliving wouldn't mind re-signing Brian Elliott and Chad Johnson.

Elliott and Johnson are both eligible to become unrestricted free agents this summer. "Do we stay where we are at?" said Treliving of the possibility of re-singing one or both netminders. "We’ve talked to both guys to get a sense of where they are at. We were really comfortable with how our goaltending shaped up this year. We went from 30th to 14th. Do we think the goaltending played up to its potential in the playoffs? Probably not. But let’s not forget, without those guys, we end the year a little earlier. You get through the emotion and get past that. When your eyes are bleeding because you’re so wound up, you usually make bad decisions. So you analyze it." The odds of the Flames inking their existing options has gone up now that Ben Bishop and Scott Darling have both been traded and signed, taking two appealing goaltenders off of the market.
