Elliott will start Tuesday in Nashville.
Elliott stopped 21 of 23 shots in the Flyers’ win in Anaheim on Saturday. Elliott has won his first two starts with the Flyers, stopping 53 of 58 shots (.914 SV%) and tonight he makes his third start in four games. He will face a Nashville team that has lost their first two games of the season—scoring just three goals.
Elliott will start Saturday in Anaheim.
Elliott gave up three goals on 35 shots in the Flyers win in San Jose on opening night. He was given the following night off but will get back between the pipes tonight in Anaheim. The Flyers have been inconsistent through two games, but have a good chance at walking away with the ‘W’ tonight vs. a banged up Ducks team.
Elliott will make his Flyers debut tonight in San Jose.
Elliott was very successful in a timeshare in five years with the Blues and stumbled in his opportunity to be a true No.1 last year in Calgary. Now in Philadelphia he is expected to split time with Michal Neuvirth and will play behind a team that allowed the seventh fewest shots in the league last season. Expect improved numbers from last year, but the timeshare limits his overall upside in 2017-18.
The Flyer have signed Brian Elliott to a two-year deal worth $5.5M ($2.75M AAV).
Elliott was acquired by the Flames last season to serve as their No.1 netminder after years of success in St. Louis. It didn’t go as planned with Elliott posting a 2.55 GAA and .910 SV% in 49 starts, leading the Calgary trading for Mike Smith this offseason and letting Elliott walk. He heads to Philadelphia where he will likely share the crease with Michal Neuvirth.
Elliott will start Monday vs. the Avalanche.
Elliott allowed two goals on 31 shots in the Flames’ win in St. Louis on Saturday. Elliott continues to play extremely well and comes into tonight at 24-14-3 with a 2.48 GAAm .911 SV% and two shutouts on the season. He is a must-start vs. the Avalanche, who he is 2-0-0 with a 2.00 GAA and .913 SV% against this season.
