    Blues' Brian Elliott: 31 saves defeats Chicago in Game 7

    Elliott rejected 31 of 33 shots in Monday's Game 7 win over the Blackhawks. Elliott redeemed himself in a big way after a pair of subpar outings that forced the pivotal Game 7, as he withstood a late attack to help clinch the series. The Blues will take on the offensively minded Stars in the next round, and Elliott figures to continue receiving the nod to start the series.

    Blues' Brian Elliott: Game 7 start on tap

    Elliott will start Monday's Game 7 at home against Chicago, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Through the first six games of the series overall, Elliott has logged a 2.46 GAA and .928 save percentage, but over back-to-back losses to the Hawks -- which takes the Blues' playoff series to seven games -- Elliott has surrendered nine goals on 70 shots.

    Blues' Brian Elliott: Takes second straight loss in Game 6

    Elliott allowed five goals on 35 shots in Saturday's 6-3 loss to Chicago in Game 6 of their first-round playoff series. Elliott wasn't as bad as the box score might indicate. The Blackhawks, down 3-1 after one period and facing elimination, overwhelmed the Blues' defense in the second period, scoring three times and then never letting up. Game 7 is set for Monday night in St. Louis. Elliott has played the first six games of the series and though it really hasn't been his fault, a fresh Jake Allen is an option for head coach Ken Hitchcock.

    Blues' Brian Elliott: Starting in net Saturday

    Elliot will patrol the crease for Game 6 against the Blackhawks on Saturday, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Elliot has performed well in five games this post-season, notching a 3-2 record, while also recording a 2.00 GAA and a .941 save percentage. Elliot will look to close out the series Saturday, but he'll have to overcome any lingering fatigue from Thursday, after seeing 83:07 of ice time in the loss.

    Blues' Brian Elliott: Tries to finish series but loses in double OT

    Elliott gave up four goals on 35 shots in Thursday's 4-3 double-overtime loss to the Blackhawks in Game 5. Elliott has done his part is slowing down the red-hot offense of the Blackhawks, but closing out the defending champions is a tough pill to swallow for the netminder. The 31-year-old was on ice for a massive 83:07, which could push coach Ken Hitchcock to consider Jake Allen for Saturday's matchup. Elliott sports a 2.20 GAA and .940 save percentage, which should be enough to keep him between the pipes despite the lengthy ice time Thursday (and a day of rest).

    Blues' Brian Elliott: Starting Game 5

    Elliott will command the crease for Game 5 against the Blackhawks on Thursday night, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports. Elliott has fashioned three wins and a .954 save percentage in the playoffs, and the Blues can close out the first-round series with a win Thursday. The 31-year-old backstop won't have any qualms about Andrew Shaw being suspended for the upcoming contest, considering the Blackhawks forward averaged a point per game through the first four. Both Elliott and Jake Allen have dealt with their fair share injuries this season, but goaltending has been a major strength for St. Louis as the puck pluggers combined for a 0.925 save percentage during the regular season. With the way Elliott is playing in the postseason, there's been no need to unleash Allen, but he's said to be healthy and available for work.

    Blues' Brian Elliott: Backstops Blues to 3-1 series lead

    Elliott made 39 saves in a 4-3 win in Game 4 against Chicago. At this rate, Jake Allen won't see a minute of playoff action. Elliott has been brilliant for the Blues, making save after save, including some big ones against Patrick Kane one-on-one. Elliott now has a ridiculous .954 save percentage and minuscule 1.70 goals-against average this playoffs. Playoff poolies who ignored the risk of Elliott potentially losing his job to Allen have seen the gamble pay huge dividends so far. The Blues head back to St. Louis with a 3-1 series lead.

    Blues' Brian Elliott: Between pipes for Game 4

    Elliott will defend the cage Tuesday night, working as the road starter against the Blackhawks in Game 4, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Elliott has been outstanding in this quarterfinal round of the playoffs, surrendered just four goals on 109 shots and picking up a pair of wins, including an overtime shut out in Game 1. The Blues own the league's third-ranked penalty kill at 85.1 percent, which is a major boon for Elliott as he and the Blues hope to widen the series lead to 3-1 after Tuesday's contest.

    Blues' Brian Elliott: Superb in Game 3

    Elliott denied 44 of 46 shots in Sunday's Game 3 win over the Blackhawks. Elliott faced a relentless attack all game long -- especially in a 24-shot second period -- but he stood up to the task to turn in a superb performance. The 31-year-old has risen to the occasion in the playoffs thus far, posting a .963 save percentage and 1.28 GAA through three games.

    Blues' Brian Elliott: Will start Game 3

    Elliott will be in the net for Sunday's Game 3 tilt with the Blackhawks, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Coach Ken Hitchcock indicated following Saturday's open practice session that the Blues wouldn't be adjusting their lineup following Friday's Game 2 loss, so Elliott will again man the crease as the Blues look to take a lead in the series. Elliott has been a rock between the pipes through the first two matchups with the Blackhawks, stopping 61 of 63 shots (.968 save percentage).
