Without Warner, the Arizona Cardinals...

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.

But a sprained knee that...
