Brian Elliott made 24 saves on 27 shots in a 4-3 Flyers' win over the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday night, but he didn't get credit for the victory after being injured in the shootout.

Elliott was searching for his fifth straight win, but he he had to leave due to a lower-body injury. Philadelphia GM Ron Hextall said an update will come on the netminder's status when the team returns to from their road trip. Michal Neuvirth earned the win in relief and he is probable to get the nod Sunday versus Vegas.
Feb 11 - 1:10 AM

The Flyers have confirmed that Brian Elliott will be in goal tonight against the Arizona Coyotes.

Elliott is coming off a 5-3 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday and with the Flyers starting back-to-back games, he might get both starts if he performs well tonight. If he's lying around your waiver wire you might be able to get two starts out of the veteran goaltender this weekend. He'll come into tonight's contest with a 21-11-7 record, a 2.72 goals-against-average and a .909 save percentage this season.
Feb 10 - 1:04 PM

Brian Elliott allowed three goals on 28 shots in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Montreal Canadiens.

Even though the score was tied at two heading into the third period, the Flyers never trailed in this game. They also got a pair of power play goals this evening. Elliott has now won four games in a row and seven of his last eight. He has a 21-11-7 record with a 2.72 goals-against-average and a .909 save percentage this season. Elliott will continue to be a solid number two goalie in standard fantasy leagues.
Feb 8 - 10:31 PM

It looks like Brian Elliott will start on Thursday.

Elliott was the first goaltender off the ice following the morning skate, which is usually a good indicator of who the starter will be. He has a 20-11-7 record, 2.71 GAA, and .909 save percentage in 39 games this season.
Feb 8 - 1:33 PM

Brian Elliott stopped 27 of the 28 shots he faced on Tuesday night as the Philadelphia Flyers defeated the Carolina Hurricanes by a score of 2-1 in overtime.

This was Elliott's first game back from a lower-body injury and he seems to have regained his form. He has now won three starts in a row and six of his last seven. He sports a 20-11-7 record with a 2.71 goals-against average and a .909 save percentage. The Flyers should really consider riding him as they make their push for the playoffs.
Feb 6 - 9:54 PM

Brian Elliott will be back in the cage for Philadelphia on Tuesday night.

Elliott missed four games with a lower-body injury before he was activated off injured reserve Monday. The 32-year-old netminder has a 19-11-7 record this year with a 2.77 goals-against average and .908 save percentage.
Feb 6 - 3:10 PM

Brian Elliott (lower body) has been activated from injured reserve.

Elliot will be back in the lineup Tuesday after he missed four games. The Flyers lost all four contests and didn't get strong goaltending from Michal Neuvirth or Alex Lyon. Perhaps, Elliot can get the team on the right track against Carolina.
Feb 5 - 3:25 PM

The Flyers are hoping Brian Elliott will be able to start Tuesday against the Hurricanes.

Elliott has missed Philly's last three games with a lower-body injury but the Flyers' coaching staff is optimistic he will be activated off the injured list and possibly start Tuesday against Carolina. Check back with us on Monday for an update on Elliott's status.
Feb 3 - 9:27 AM

Brian Elliott (lower body) skated on Friday in full gear.

The Flyers didn't practice on Friday, so Elliott was skating on his own, but it's good step forward for him. Flyers GM Ron Hextall said that Elliott won't return until Tuesday at the earliest, which in other words means that he's not available for Saturday's contest.
Feb 2 - 1:52 PM

Brian Elliott (lower body) has been put on injured reserve.

Elliott missed Philadelphia's final game prior to the All-Star break because of a lower-body injury and he is retroactive to last Tuesday when he faced Detroit.
Jan 30 - 10:53 AM

Brian Elliott has sustained a lower-body injury.

Elliott is regarded as day-to-day and won't be in the lineup on Thursday. Michal Neuvirth was already projected to start and we're about to begin the All-Star break, so in the short-term Elliott's injury isn't a big issue. However, the Flyers have relied on Elliott significantly this season so if his injury ends up being more serious then it could be a considerable problem for them.

Jan 25 - 5:31 PM

Brian Elliott stopped 19 of 21 shots in a 3-2 overtime win over the Detroit Red Wings.

Elliott is now up to five wins in his last six starts but is beginning to lose starts here and there to backup Michal Neuvirth. But If Elliott continues to perform like he did in his past two games, he should be able to return fantasy value and keep Neuvirth away from extra starts. Elliot's record improves to 19-11-7 with a 2.77 goals against average and .908 save percentage.
Jan 23 - 10:26 PM

Brian Elliott will start Tuesday's match versus Detroit.

Elliott turned aside 27 of 28 shots in a 2-1 overtime win over Washington on Sunday. He has gone 18-11-7 this season with a 2.79 goals-against average and .908 save percentage in 37 appearances.
Jan 23 - 12:11 PM

Brian Elliott turned aside 27 of 28 shots in a 2-1 overtime win against Washington Sunday afternoon.

The only goal Elliott did surrender was a power-play marker to star forward Alex Ovechkin. Elliott has now won four of his last five games, but he hasn't been that great through much of that run. In fact, this was his first start Dec. 23 where he allowed two or fewer goals.
