Elliott turned aside all 23 shots he faced in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Sabres.
The veteran netminder looked very good in recording his second shutout of the season, both of which have come against Buffalo. He's pushed his way into a timeshare with Carter Hart, at least for the moment, and on the season Elliott has a dazzling 6-1-0 record with a 2.03 GAA and .931 save percentage.
Elliott will start Saturday's game in Buffalo, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Elliott will be tasked with making consecutive starts for the first time this season, having beaten the Rangers 4-3 in his previous outing. Carter Hart has struggled this year, most recently allowing six goals against Boston before getting the hook, and the youngster's struggles have opened the door for Elliott to take on a larger role, at least in the short term.
Elliott turned aside 24 shots in a 4-3 win over the Rangers on Wednesday.
Making just his third appearance since the start of February, Elliott was perfect against Rangers not named Chris Kreider, who scored three times from in close. The 35-year-old Elliott has enjoyed a strong season behind No. 1 starter Carter Hart, going 4-1-0 with a 2.38 GAA and .922 save percentage.
Elliott will start Wednesday's game against the Rangers, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports.
Elliott hasn't started since Feb. 5, though he was needed in relief during Sunday's 7-3 loss to Boston. Carter Hart gave up six goals in that one, so it's no surprise that he's getting a game off to clear his head. Elliott has been sharp this season with a 2.25 GAA and .928 save percentage, and he'll face a Rangers team that will be without leading scorer Artemi Panarin (not injury related).
Elliott allowed one goal on 12 shots in the third period of Sunday's 7-3 loss to the Bruins.
Elliott took over for starting goalie Carter Hart after the latter ended the second period by yielding three goals within the last four minutes. The 35-year-old Elliott has better numbers than Hart, albeit in limited time. Sunday was Elliott's sixth appearance, and he has 11 goals allowed on 152 shots for a .928 save percentage. It wouldn't be shocking to see the Ontario native push for a larger share of the playing time.
Elliott and the Flyers' Tuesday night matchup with Washington has been postponed, Frank Seravalli of TSN.ca reports.
Philadelphia's games versus the Devils on Thursday and Saturday had already been postponed prior to Tuesday's announcement, so the Flyers won't be back on the ice until Sunday against the Rangers at the earliest.
Elliott will tend the road twine Tuesday against the Capitals, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Carter Hart's game has been inconsistent, while Elliott has flashed some impressive performances thus far, recording a .929 save percentage and a 3-1-0 record. The 35-year-old will draw a tough start, especially if Evgeny Kuznetsov (COVID-19 protocol) returns to action, as the Capitals rank fourth in the league with 3.58 goals per game.
Elliott turned aside 21 shots in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Bruins.
Neither team scored until the third period, but the Bruins needed only 27 seconds to do all their damage midway through the frame. After Brad Marchand somehow reached a loose puck in the crease during a scrum and tapped it in off one post past Elliott, Sean Kuraly rang a shot from just inside the blue line off the opposite post and found twine on the very next shift. A couple inches either way, and Elliott has a shutout. It's not yet clear how long Carter Hart's back spasms will keep him sidelined, but Elliott and his 3-1-0 record, 2.19 GAA and .929 save percentage will hold down the No. 1 job until he returns to action.
Elliott will get the starting nod at home versus Boston on Friday.
Elliott has been rock solid to start the season, as he is 3-0-0 with one shutout and a 2.22 GAA in four appearances. The veteran netminder will likely continue to spell Carter Hart throughout the season and could play his way into a more even split of the duties if he continues his strong run of form.
Elliott stopped 33 of 36 shots in Sunday's 4-3 overtime win versus the Islanders.
Elliott was given a 3-1 lead through two periods but had to work overtime for the victory after the Isles tied things up early in the third. It was the third consecutive win for the 35-year-old, who owns a 2.22 GAA and .932 save percentage in four appearances (three starts).
Elliott will defend the home net in Sunday's game against the Islanders, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Carter Hart started in net in Saturday's overtime win against the Islanders, and Elliott will get the nod for the rematch. Elliott has made two starts this season, posting a 40-save shutout and an .885 save percentage in his other outing.
Elliott made 23 saves in Tuesday's 5-3 win over New Jersey.
This effort wasn't as impressive as Elliott's 40-save shutout of the Sabres, but he has now won both of his starts. With Carter Hart struggling recently, Elliott could work his way up to an even timeshare in Philadelphia's net if he continues to find success when called upon. Philadelphia's next game comes Thursday against this same Devils squad.
Elliott will start Tuesday's game against the Devils.
Elliott notched a 40-save shutout against the Sabres in his only start of the season while Carter Hart has struggled lately, allowing 14 goals en route to a 0-2-1 record in his last three starts. Another strong effort from the veteran backup could create a short-term controversy in Philadelphia's crease, though it's likely only a matter of time before Hart finds his game again.
Elliott recorded a 40-save shutout Tuesday in a 3-0 win over Buffalo.
Elliott was making his first start of the season following his Monday relief appearance against the very same Sabres. The 35-year-old produced his first 40-save effort since March 2019, resulting in career shutout No. 41. Elliott had a down year in 2019-20, posting his first sub-.900 save percentage since 2010-11. If he can regain the steady form he displayed during his first two seasons with the Flyers, it would help ease the burden on No. 1 netminder Carter Hart.
Elliott will start in the home net for Tuesday's game against the Sabres, Charlie O'Connor of The Athletic reports.
Elliott came in for relief of Carter Hart in Monday's 6-1 loss to the Sabres, and he allowed two goals on 15 shots. This will be the 35-year-old's first start of the year. The Ontario native struggled last season over 31 appearances, producing an .899 save percentage and a 2.87 GAA.
Elliott came off the bench to stop 13 of 15 shots in Monday's 6-1 loss to Buffalo.
The Sabres chased Philadelphia starter Carter Hart to the bench with four goals before the game's midway point, then added two more after Elliott entered the game. The 35-year-old was expected to make his first start Tuesday against Buffalo, but it's possible Philadelphia will go back to Hart in light of his abbreviated appearance Monday.
Elliott is expected to start between the pipes for Tuesday's game against Buffalo, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
The 35-year-old returned to Philadelphia this offseason on a one-year pact, expecting to handle a No. 2 role behind Carter Hart this season. Elliott was decent last year, racking up a 16-7-4 record along with a .899 save percentage and 2.87 GAA in 31 appearances. Elliott could be a nice sleeper option from a fantasy perspective Tuesday, especially considering Buffalo has just five goals through the first two games this campaign.
Elliott signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the Flyers on Saturday, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Elliott appeared in 31 games with Philadelphia in 2019-20, compiling a 16-7-4 record while posting a 2.87 GAA and .899 save percentage. The 35-year-old vet will continue to play second fiddle to Carter Hart in 2020-21, but he'll remain a decent secondary option in deeper leagues as a dependable backstop on a good team who will get 30-plus starts.
Elliott yielded three goals on 33 shots in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Islanders in Game 4.
Elliott kept things close for the first half of the game, but a pair of third-period goals ended up being too much for the Flyers to overcome. In three appearances, Elliott has given up five goals on 56 shots. Expect Carter Hart to start a must-win Game 5 on Tuesday.
Elliott will guard the cage for Game 4 against the Islanders on Sunday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Elliott will be tasked with trying to even up the series at 2-2 after Carter Hart and the Flyers lost Game 3 on the first night of the back-to-back Saturday. In two appearances this postseason (one in relief), the 35-year-old has allowed two goals on 23 shots.
