Brian Elliott will tend the net for Team Foligno in the third period on Sunday.

Elliott famously left his family on vacation in Turks and Caicos to get to Columbus in time for the game on Sunday, but you can see how and why he's earned the honor. He owns a 13-5-2 record with just 39 goals against in 22 games played this season.
Jan 24 - 7:29 PM

Kevin Shattenkirk is having the best season of his his career in 2014-15.

He has been standing out offensively and defensively. Shattenkirk is just six points away from matching his previous high of 45, which he established last year. He is also just two goals away from hitting double digits for a second straight season. Shattenkirk is one point behind Mark Giordano for top spot among all defensemen in scoring. He also leads all blueliners and is tied with Claude Giroux for first overall with 24 points on the power play. He has been solid defensively as well because he feels stronger and quicker on the ice.

Brian Elliott will replace Sergei Bobrovsky at the NHL All-Star Game.

Bobrovsky was injured Wednesday night in Winnipeg. Elliott has been superb this season for St. Louis, with .930 save percentage and a 1.86 goals-against average in 22 appearances. He also has 13 victories.
Jan 22 - 3:36 PM

Jaden Schwartz scored his third game-winning goal of the year on Monday night.

He also added an assist in a 3-1 victory over Colorado. His primary helper on a goal by Carl Gunnarsson opened the scoring and his power-play tally just 32 seconds into the second period held up as the winner. Schwartz has been red hot lately, failing to record at least one point in just two of his past 11 contests. He has seven goals and seven assists over that span.
Jan 20 - 4:57 PM

Brian Elliott had a relatively easy night Monday, requiring only 17 saves in a 3-1 victory over the visiting Colorado Avalanche.

Elliott improved his record to 13-5-2 and his NHL-best goals-against average to a sparkling 1.86. His save percentage isn't too shabby, either, at .930. Elliott is now 5-2-1 in his career against Colorado. He had 27 saves in a shutout against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night.
Jan 19 - 11:45 PM

Alexander Steen and his linemates continued Monday night to score at a rapid pace for the St. Louis Blues.

Steen notched a pair of assists in the Blues' 3-1 triumph over the visiting Colorado Avalanche. Steen, T.J. Oshie and David Backes combined for four points. Steen extended his point streak to 10 games (seven goals, 11 assists). Oshie scored a goal and has 16 points in his past 12 games, and Backes had an assist to extend his point streak to seven games (seven goals, seven assists). The trio, who make up the Blues' No. 1 line, have amassed 53 points in the past 12 games. The Blues are 7-0-1 in their past eight games and 5-0-1 during their seven-game homestand. Jaden Schwartz also had a big night for the Blues, scoring his 21st goal of the season and adding an assist as the Blues improved their record to 29-13-4. Carl Gunnarson (2nd) scored the Blues' first goal of the night.
Jan 19 - 11:35 PM

Chris Bulter will be a healthy scratch on the blue line for the Blues Monday night.

The Blues will continue to go with Ian Cole as their sixth defenseman which means Butler will continue watch from the press box. Butler hasn't recorded a point since scoring a goal back on December 30th and isn't worth owning in any fantasy formats.
Jan 19 - 6:58 PM

Joakim Lindstrom will be a healthy scratch Monday against Colorado.

Lindstrom had suited up in the last two Blues games but will give way to Dmitrij Jaskin on Monday evening. It's been a tough year for the 31-year-old Swede as he has just three goals and three assists in 30 games played to go along with a minus five rating.
Jan 19 - 6:56 PM

Dmitrij Jaskin will be back in the Blues lineup Monday against the Avalanche.

After sitting the last two games, Jaskin will be back on the wing with Jaden Schwartz and Paul Stastny to form the Blues third line. The 21-year-old promising star has four goals and three assists in 18 games this year but according to head coach Ken Hitchcock, he has to play a more physical game and almost be a role player in order to stay in the Blues lineup. He will take Joakim Lindstrom's spot in the lineup Monday.
Jan 19 - 6:53 PM

Brian Elliot will be between the pipes Monday night against the rival Avalanche.

Elliot is coming off a 27 save shutout victory over the Maple Leafs Saturday night and will look to continue his hot streak Monday against Colorado. Elliot has an NHL-best 1.90 goals-against-average this season in 21 games played but has not fared well in his career against the Avalanche, where he has posted a 4-2-1 record and 2.65 GAA but a below-average .868 save percentage.
Jan 19 - 6:47 PM

David Backes had two assists in Saturday's 3-0 win over Toronto.

After getting off to a slow start offensively, Backes has really picked it up in 2015. He is on a six-game point streak, and he has picked up 13 points during that span. The 30-year-old 16 goals and 16 assists in 44 games this season. Backes' assists came on third period goals from Alex Steen and T.J. Oshie.
Jan 18 - 10:23 AM

Kevin Shattenkirk scored a goal in St. Louis' 3-0 win over Toronto.

Shattenkirk has been putting up an incredible amount of points for a defenseman. The 25-year-old has 10 points in his last eight games, and he has eight goals, 39 points and a plus-18 rating in 45 games this season. The 25-year-old is well on his way to surpassing his career-high of 45 points (2013-14).
Jan 18 - 10:18 AM

Alexander Steen registered two points in the Blues’ 3-0 win over the Maple Leafs on Saturday night.

Steen scored early in the third period, then assisted on T.J. Oshie’s goal later in the frame. Steen has scored in five consecutive games, and is showing that last season’s breakout is no fluke. He has 15 goals and 38 points. Kevin Shattenkirk got the other goal in the win. David Backes chipped in with two helpers.
Jan 17 - 10:58 PM

Brian Elliott blanked the Maple Leafs with 27 saves in St. Louis’ 3-0 win Saturday night.

The shutout is Elliott’s third of the season, in 21 games. He has been a little hot and cold since returning from his lower-body injury Dec. 30, but this is the type of standout performance he’s capable of. He has a 1.90 goals-against average and .929 save percentage this season and has the ability to be among the more valuable netminders in fantasy the rest of the way. Of course, Jake Allen continues to poach starts, so it complicates matters.
Jan 17 - 10:56 PM

Alex Pietrangelo is a plus-10 in his last 10 games.

While his minus-two overall rating does not look great, he has vastly improved upon of late. He has four goals and 22 assists this season and should have a better second half.
