The Arizona Coyotes have retained half of Zbynek Michalek's remaining salary and cap hit in their trade with St. Louis.

Michalek is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, so it's not a big financial undertaking for Arizona, but it will help St. Louis stay under the ceiling. The Coyotes also sent a conditional third-round pick to St. Louis and received prospect Maxim Letunov.

Brian Elliot stopped five of six shots in a brief relief appearance in Sunday's 6-5 shootout loss to Vancouver.

Elliot entered the game at the start of the third period with the Blues trailing 4-2. Elliot then allowed an early third period goal to Nick Bonino and he decided to pull himself from the game. Elliot came back out of the tunnel a little later on and had some words with coach Ken Hitchcock before disappearing back into the locker room. The Blues eventually scored three unanswered goals in the game to force overtime, but they fell in the shootout. This is a weird situation between the coach and his goaltender. It'll be interesting to see how the team chooses to explain this.

Jake Allen stopped 21 of 25 shots in Sunday's 6-5 shootout loss to Vancouver.

Allen was pulled after allowing four goals through two periods. In a strange turn of events, Brian Elliot pulled himself after allowing an early third period goal to Nick Bonino. With Allen back in goal, the Blues scored three unanswered goals to force overtime. Unfortunately for St. Louis, their goaltender was unable to come up with a single save in the shootout. Allen's record falls to 17-6-3 this season and he has a 2.55 goals-against-average and a .903 save percentage.

The 28-year-old has 17 goals and 44 points in 55 games this season.

Oshie (17), Paul Stastny (11) and Dmitrij Jaskin (10) have all hit double-digit goal totals this year. The Blues have a very balanced attack which they hope will be useful come playoff time.

The young Russian now has 10 goals, 14 points and a plus-9 rating in 35 games in 2014-15. He finished the night with four shots, four hits and a plus-1 rating. He was named the game's second star.

Mar 1 - 12:53 AM

Zbynek Michalek is drawing "significant interest" on the trade market, according to Coyotes general manager Don Maloney.

This despite Michalek dealing with an upper-body injury that has sidelined him since Feb. 14. Michalek is improving and should be able to play soon, so it hasn’t scared off teams. The 32-year-old has eight points this season.
Feb 28 - 11:15 PM
