Brian Elliott stopped 35 of 37 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to Columbus.
The Blues came into this season with the idea that Elliott and Jake Allen would share the workload but that hasn't happened. Elliott has been the clear backup in St. Louis and that should continue going forward. The 30-year-old has a 4-2-1 record with a 2.70 goals-against-average and an .898 save percentage this season.

Brian Elliott will be between the pipes Tuesday night versus Columbus.

This will be his second start in the last nine games. "Jake [Allen] didn't go in the net based on poor play (by Elliott)," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "Jake went into the net because there was an opportunity there based on an illness and he took advantage of it. So then you run with that as far as you can." Allen allowed two goals on 18 shots in a 3-2 win over Winnipeg on Monday and will get Tuesday night off. Hitchcock isn't ready to hand the number one job over to Allen yet, but the feeling is that Elliott has to step up now to make it more of a race.

Brian Elliott found himself in a game for the first time in eight days as he finished off St. Louis' 6-3 loss to the Rangers.

Jake Allen was pulled after allowing three goals on five shots to start the game. Elliott, returning from a head injury, gave the Blues a chance to win, stopping 14 of 16 shots. The hole was just too deep to get out of though and Elliott falls to 4-1-1 this year with a .887 save percentage and 2.80 goals against average.

Brian Elliott has avoided a serious injury and will be able to dress as Jake Allen's backup Saturday night against Nashville.

He took a blow to the head in Wednesday's game but appears to be fine. Keep him in your lineup if you normally would.
Nov 7 - 1:42 PM

Brian Elliott (head) took part in Friday's practice.

Elliott is apparently "fine," but he's nevertheless not expected to start on Saturday. The Blues don't have a third goalie on their roster though, so unless that changes Elliott will at least serve as the backup.

Brian Elliott suffered a blow to the head in Wednesday's game against Chicago.

He will be re-evaluated on Thursday after he was hurt in a collision in the crease.
Nov 5 - 9:41 AM

St. Louis goalie Brian Elliott left Wednesday night's game in Chicago in the first period because of an apparent injury.

Elliott did not have a good night. He allowed four goals on 15 Chicago shots before being replaced by Jake Allen, who made 27 saves on 28 shots and was credited with the victory. The Blues prevailed, 6-5, in overtime. Allen's record improved to 5-3-0. His goals-against average is 1.93 and his save percentage, .935. Elliott's GAA deteriorated to 2.81 and he has a poor save percentage of .888. His record still looks pretty good, though. He's 4-0-1 in six appearances.

Brian Elliott will start Wednesday's game at Chicago.

The Blues will stick with Jake Allen against Los Angeles on Tuesday night. Allen may be pulling ahead of Elliott in the Blues' number one goalie race thanks to some excellent play of late, but Elliott has played pretty well this season.
Nov 2 - 2:08 PM

Brian Elliott returned to practice Tuesday.

He will probably be able to back up Jake Allen on Tuesday night when the Blues host Tampa Bay. Elliott missed Monday's session because he was suffering from the flu.

Brian Elliott didn't practice Monday because of the flu.

The Blues are hopeful that Elliott will be able to serve as Jake Allen's backup on Tuesday night against Tampa Bay.
Oct 26 - 2:47 PM

Brian Elliott yielded three goals on 22 shots in the Blues’ 3-2 overtime loss to the Islanders on Saturday night.

This was more of the Blues locking up the Islanders than anything else, as Elliott gave up two goals on 16 shots through two periods, then faced only six shots on goal the rest of the way. The loss snaps a four-game winning streak for the 30-year-old. He has a 2.18 GAA and .908 SV% this season.
Oct 24 - 10:57 PM

The St. Louis Blues are expected to go with Brian Elliott on Saturday.

Elliott has a 4-0-0 record, 2.01 GAA, and .918 save percentage in four contests this season. He's been splitting the goaltending duties with Jake Allen so far.
Oct 23 - 3:39 PM

As much as the St. Louis Blues might want Jake Allen to be "the guy," Brian Elliott continues to get the job done.

Elliott improved his 2015-16 record to 4-0-0 as the Blues beat the Winnipeg Jets 4-2 on Sunday. The veteran netminder stopped 27 out of 29 shots to keep his record perfect in this young campaign.
Oct 18 - 6:29 PM

Brian Elliott will get the nod in net for the Blues against the Jets on Sunday.

Elliott has sandwiched two great performances in between one poor one, posting a 2.00 goals-against average and .912 save percentage across three games. The Blues are 4-1-0 this season.
Oct 17 - 8:21 PM

Brian Elliott stoned the Oilers 4-2 on Thursday night on just 20 shots.

Albeit, Elliott did surrender the game's first tally just 96 seconds in. He was money after that however, which includes stopping all six power play shots against. This particular result may not be surprising given the quality gap between the two squads, but remember, this is exactly what good goalies also do against bad teams.
