Elliott allowed five goals on just 21 shots through two periods of Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Rangers. This was a potentially soft matchup for Elliott and the Flyers, as the Rangers scored just 1.73 goals per 60 minutes through their past 10 contests. However, things didn't go as planned, and Elliott's three-game winning streak was snapped in disappointing fashion. The Flyers have five games left before the All-Star break, so expect the veteran to return to the crease sooner than later, and he'll look to improve on his mediocre 17-11-7 record, .906 save percentage and 2.84 GAA.
Elliott will guard the cage against New York on Tuesday, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Elliott has been a workhorse this season, as he has appeared in 26 of the Flyers' previous 28 contests. With a November slump behind him, the tender has performed well of late with four wins in his last five outings. The Rangers have dropped three straight games, a trend the 32-year-old will look to extend Tuesday.
Elliott will patrol the crease in Saturday's road game against the Devils, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Elliott hasn't played well recently, posting an ugly 3.84 GAA and .864 save percentage in his last four appearances, but he's gone 3-1-0 over that span due to fantastic goal support from his teammates. He'll look to sharpen up and pick up a third consecutive victory in a road matchup with a Devils squad that's 12-5-3 at home this season.
Elliott made 28 saves in Saturday's 6-3 win over St. Louis. It was Elliott's 16th straight start. He has now won three of this last four starts, but has allowed at least three goals in each of those four games. Elliott shook off his truly awful start to the season and has made enough important and timely saves to keep his team in most games, even when they shouldn't have been. Recently, however, he's been bailed out by his high-scoring teammates. Elliott is a workhorse, but watch for Michal Neuvirth to get a start soon, just to give the old man some rest. Neuvirth fans may not have to wait long with Buffalo on tap in the second leg of a back-to-back Sunday.
Elliott will face off against the Blues -- his former squad -- Saturday afternoon, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Elliott will play the Blues for the third time since they let him walk after the 2015-16 season -- when he basically carried them to the Western Conference finals. This will be Elliott's 16th consecutive start, but he's struggled of late, allowing 14 goals on 99 shots -- a .859 save percentage -- while luckily getting enough offensive support to reel in a 2-2-0 record. The Blues have been the opposite, as they've struggled offensively and haven't scored a power-play goal in their last seven matchups, but they've been saved by stellar goaltending to win their last three. If that goaltending keeps up for St. Louis, it will be difficult for Elliott to steal a win.
