Lightning's Brian Elliott: Can't bail out poor defensive play
Elliott made 30 saves in a 5-2 loss to the Blue Jackets on Thursday night.
He's now 12-11-4 with a 2.43 GAA and .912 save percentage this season. Elliott just couldn't bail out the poor defensive play of his teammates -- they simply gave up too many high danger chances. The postseason net belongs to Andrei Vasilevskiy.... See More ... See Less

Elliott will defend the blue paint during Thursday's road game versus the Blue Jackets, source reports.

Lightning's Brian Elliott: Between pipes Saturday
Elliott led the Lightning onto the ice, indicating he'll start Saturday's home game versus the Predators, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Lightning's Brian Elliott: Fourth win in row
Elliott made 19 saves in Saturday's 6-2 win over Nashville.
Roman Josi beat him on the power play in the first period and Alexandre Carrier tapped in a goal at 10:42 of the second to make it 3-2. Elliott really wasn't that busy and the Bolts absolutely dominated the Preds. He's won four straight.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: Good enough to get win
Elliott made 14 saves in a 7-4 win over Winnipeg on Saturday.
He really wasn't busy and he really wasn't good early. The Jets went up 4-2 by the middle of the second frame before his team turned up the heat. Still, Elliott has won three-straight games this past week and is 5-1-1 in his last six starts since his return from injury in early March. He's a good spot-starter in daily heading toward season's end.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: Facing Winnipeg
Elliott will defend the blue paint during Saturday's home game versus the Jets, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.
Elliott has been unstoppable recently, picking up back-to-back shutout victories over the Sabres and the Ducks. He'll look to keep rolling in a home matchup with a Winnipeg team that's averaging 2.74 goals per game on the road this year, 22nd in the NHL.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: Signs one-year extension
Elliott signed a one-year, $900,000 extension with the Lightning on Friday, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.
Elliott has been excellent for Tampa Bay this season, going 9-3-3 while posting an admirable 2.23 GAA and .921 save percentage. He'll likely once again make around 20 starts as the Lightning's No. 2 option behind Andrei Vasilevskiy in 2022-23.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: Perfect in relief to get win
Elliott was perfect in relief with 13 saves in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Ducks.
He replaced starter Andrei Vasilevskiy in the second period after the wheels came off for the Bolts. Elliott stabilized the team and they eventually roared back to get the win. He's been solid of late and could see a bit more action before season's end as Vasilevskiy works out some of the kinks in his game.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: Shuts out Buffalo
Elliott stopped all 28 shots he faced in Sunday's 5-0 win over the Sabres.
The Sabres have been playing some good hockey of late, but they couldn't solve Elliott in this one. Elliott notched his first shutout in a Lightning uniform, improving his record to 8-3-3. The 37-year-old backup has outplayed starter Andrei Vasilevskiy recently, with Vasilevskiy allowing 12 goals en route to a 0-2-1 record over his last three outings, but few No. 1 goalies have as much job security as Vasilevskiy. Elliott's strong play could earn him a few extra starts down the stretch as the Lightning make sure Vasilevskiy's well rested for the postseason.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: Facing Sabres on Sunday
Elliott will start Sunday's game against the visiting Sabres, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.
Sunday will mark just the 15th appearance of the campaign for the 37-year-old, as he's been rolled out sparingly behind workhorse Andrei Vasilevskiy. Elliott's numbers (2.48 GAA, .912 save percentage) have been solid for a backup, and he makes for a great DFS option against a lackluster Buffalo offense (2.74 goals for this season).... See More ...

Lightning's Brian Elliott: Rare sighting in blue paint
Elliott made 27 saves in a 5-4 shootout loss to Montreal on Saturday.
It's hard to stay sharp when you play every eight-to-12 days. Elliott is 7-3-3 with a 2.49 GAA and .912 save percentage. His playing time could see a slight uptick if the Bolts decide to rest Andrei Vasilevskiy.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: Making rare start
Elliott will guard the home goal during Saturday's matchup with Montreal, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Elliott was excellent in his last start last Saturday versus Detroit, stopping 26 of 27 shots en route to a 2-1 win. He'll try to pick up his eighth victory of the year in a highly favorable home matchup with a Canadiens squad that's 8-20-7 on the road this year.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: Backing up Friday
Elliott (illness) is dressing as the backup for Friday's tilt with Chicago, per the NHL's media site.
Elliott missed Thursday's practice with a minor illness but he'll be ready for his usual role Friday. The Lightning will be right back in action Saturday against Montreal and the 36-year-old could get the starting nod.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: Misses practice Thursday
Elliott is dealing with a non-COVID-19 illness and was unable to practice Thursday, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.
With the Lightning heading into a back-to-back versus Chicago and Montreal on Friday and Saturday, respectively, Elliott's potential absence would certainly complicate things for the Bolts. If he can get back to 100 percent, it seems likely Elliott would take the second game to give him some more time, but no starters have been announced yet. If the veteran does need some time off, Max Lagace or Alexei Melnichuk would need to be called up from the minors.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: Sharp in OT win over Wings
Elliott turned aside 26 shots in Saturday's 2-1 overtime win over the Red Wings.
It was a goaltending duel between two unlikely netminders, as neither Elliott nor Alex Nedeljkovic allowed a goal until the third period, but Tampa Bay's power play proved to be the difference. Elliott doesn't get much work behind Andrei Vasilevskiy, but he's been sharp when called upon, going 4-1-0 over five starts so far in 2022 with a 1.80 GAA and .938 save percentage.... See More ...

Lightning's Brian Elliott: Between pipes Saturday
Elliott will tend the twine for Saturday's road clash with the Red Wings, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.
Elliott will make just his fifth appearance for the Lightning since the calendar turned to 2022. In his previous four outings, the veteran netminder went 3-1-0 with a 2.01 GAA. Starter Andrei Vasilevskiy figures to continue seeing a heavy workload heading into the final weeks of the season with Elliott likely limited to starts in back-to-backs.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: Pelted with pucks in loss
Elliott stopped 45 of 48 shots in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Oilers.
Elliott did his best to keep this game close, but the Oilers' offense was stronger than the Lightning's. Playing time remains sparse for Elliott, who is usually limited to playing in once in back-to-back sets. He's now 6-3-2 with a 2.51 GAA and a .912 save percentage through 12 contests. He'll return to the backup role Sunday as Andrei Vasilevskiy starts against the Canucks.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: Slated to start
Elliott will guard the road cage during Saturday's matchup with the Oilers, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.
Elliott was excellent in his last start March 4 versus Detroit, stopping 22 of 23 shots en route to a 3-1 win. He'll try to pick up his seventh victory of the year in a home matchup with an Edmonton team that's averaging 3.15 goals per game at home this season, 15th in the NHL.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: Making rare start Friday
Elliott will be stationed between the pipes for Friday's home clash with Detroit, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.
Elliott will make a rare appearance after Andrei Vasilevskiy coughed up five goals in Thursday's loss to Pittsburgh. The veteran backup is 5-2-2 with a 2.62 GAA and a .902 save percentage through 10 games this season. Friday's start will be just his fourth game since Christmas.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: Gets job done Friday
Elliott stopped 16 of 19 shots in Friday's 4-3 win over the Coyotes.
Elliott wasn't great, but he was good enough to get the win. The Coyotes had a couple of goals in the third period as they pushed to even the score, which made Elliott's line look a little worse. The 36-year-old improved to 5-2-2 with a 2.62 GAA and a .902 save percentage in 10 appearances. He'll continue to play sparingly behind Andrei Vasilevskiy, who should be in goal Tuesday versus the Devils.... See More ... See Less
