Elliott rises to occasion in Winnipeg as Blues snap losing streak

The Blues might not be out of the woods just yet, but their goaltenders keep proving they can be saviors. Winnipeg native Alexander Steen put the finishing touches on a 2-1 shootout win over his hometown team, moments after goalie Brian Elliott got a glove on Andrew Ladd's long wrist shot only to see it trickle into the net. That may have been the only error made all night by the...

Elliott's recent struggles aren't all his fault, but they're still struggles

ST. LOUIS -- The Blues' latest efforts to solidify a No. 1 goaltender haven't quite worked out as planned. Brian Elliott looked to be the man after he returned from injury and posted a 1.98 goals-against average to go with an outstanding .928 save percentage in eight games, good enough to earn a late invite to the All-Star Game in Columbus. But when the Blues' five-on-five play dropped...

Elliott Steals One From Lightning

Despite dominating the game for most of the night and outshooting the St. Louis Blues 31-18, the Tampa Bay Lightning  fell in overtime 2-1.

It's time for Blues' Elliott to firmly establish himself among the NHL's elite goalies

ST. LOUIS -- After his second All-Star appearance in three years, it's time for Brian Elliott to firmly establish himself among the NHL's best goaltenders. Any remaining questions about his talent should be answered after a first half in which he posted a league-best 1.86 goals-against average, mostly proving what those who have followed his Blues career already knew.

Blues goalie Brian Elliott added to the All-Star Game

ST. LOUIS -- Just when it appeared an injury would keep Brian Elliott from making the All-Star game, another one opened up a spot for the Blues' top goaltender Thursday afternoon. The 2012 All-Star clearly has been good enough when he's on the ice, posting a 13-5-2 record to go along with a .930 save percentage and league-best 1.86 goals-against average. But a sprained knee that...
