Lightning's Brian Elliott: Wins in Vancouver
Elliott stopped 37 of 39 shots in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Canucks.
The Lightning struck four times in the first period to establish a large lead. Both goals Elliott gave up were power-play tallies for the Canucks in the third period. The 37-year-old has won four of his last six outings, improving to 9-3-0 with a 3.07 GAA and a .903 save percentage in 12 contests. Andrei Vasilevskiy will likely get the starting nod Thursday in Edmonton.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: Slated to start Wednesday
Elliott is expected to start on the road against Vancouver, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Elliott has an 8-3-0 record, 3.17 GAA and .897 save percentage in 11 contests this season. He last played Jan. 4 when he stopped 28 of 32 shots in a 5-1 loss to Minnesota. The Canucks have the eighth-ranked offense with 3.40 goals per game.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: Allows four goals against Wild
Elliott saved 28 of 32 shots in a 5-1 loss to Minnesota on Wednesday.
Andrei Vasilevskiy was originally projected to start versus the Wild, but he served as the backup instead because of an illness. That left Elliott with the difficult task of playing in net for the second time in as many days. Elliott dropped to 8-3-0 with a 3.17 GAA and .897 save percentage in 11 contests this season. He's surrendered at least three goals in two of his last three games.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: Starting consecutive games
Elliott will guard the road goal Wednesday versus the Wild, Chris Krenn of the Lightning's official site reports.
The Lightning previously confirmed Andrei Vasilevskiy as the starting goalie in a since-deleted Tweet. Elliott allowed one goal on 26 shots in a 4-1 win over the Blackhawks on Tuesday. It's still odd to see him start on back-to-back nights, which suggests something may be off with Vasilevskiy. This will be a tougher matchup for Elliott, especially given the quick turnaround between appearances.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: Solid in win against Chicago
Elliott saved 25 of 26 shots in a 4-1 win against Chicago on Tuesday.
Elliott was beaten by Seth Jones during a Chicago power play at 4:50 of the first period. That gave the Blackhawks a 1-0 edge, but Elliott was a wall after that, allowing Tampa Bay to get the win. Elliott bounced back from his previous start, when the 37-year-old surrendered five goals on 29 shots in a 7-4 loss to Detroit on Dec. 21. He has an 8-2-0 record, 3.08 GAA and .900 save percentage in 10 contests in 2022-23.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: In goal Tuesday
Elliott will guard the road goal Tuesday versus the Blackhawks, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Elliott will start the first half of a back-to-back set, and he'll get the easier opponent Tuesday rather than facing the Wild on Wednesday. The 37-year-old has gone 7-2-0 with a 3.31 GAA and an .894 save percentage, and this is one of the best matchups he could get, so he'll be a solid streaming option Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: Win streak snapped in Detroit
Elliott allowed five goals on 29 shots in Wednesday's 7-4 loss to the Red Wings.
Elliott came into this one riding a seven-start winning streak, but that streak came to a screeching halt in Motown. Tampa Bay led it 2-1 in the final minute of the opening frame, but the Red Wings proceeded to score four goals in just over 30 minutes of game time after that point to seize control. The Lightning pulled within one before a pair of late empty-netters allowed Detroit to pull away for good. This clunker notwithstanding, the veteran backup has been reliable when called upon, though Elliott's usage is usually limited almost exclusively to back-to-back situations, as was the case here....

Lightning's Brian Elliott: Slated to start Wednesday
Elliott is expected to guard the road net against Detroit on Wednesday, per Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times.
Elliott has a 7-1-0 record, 3.10 GAA and .902 save percentage in eight contests this season. He's saved 58 of 61 shots over his last two games. The Red Wings have lost their last six contests, which has brought them down to 13-11-7 this season.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: Seventh straight win
Elliott made 24 saves in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets.
Aside from a Kirill Marchenko tally in the second period, Elliott had an answer for everything Columbus threw at him in a fairly comfortable victory. Since taking the loss in his first start of the season Elliott has won seven straight, posting a 2.82 GAA and .905 save percentage over that stretch, but the 37-year-old poses little threat to Andrei Vasilevskiy's spot as the Lightning's No. 1 goalie....

Lightning's Brian Elliott: Gets starting nod versus Jackets
Elliott will be between the pipes against Columbus at home Thursday, Gabby Shirley of Bally Sports Florida reports.
Elliott will be making his eighth appearance of the season, having gone 6-1-0 with a 3.39 GAA in his previous seven contests. Despite a less-than-stellar GAA and save percentage (.895), the backup netminder continues to rack up victories for the club. Still, regardless of how well he plays, Elliott won't challenge starter Andrei Vasilevskiy for the No. 1 job.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: Starting Thursday
Elliott was the first goaltender off the ice and will get the start at home versus Nashville on Thursday, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.
Elliott has been a winner this season, although his peripherals leave a lot to be desired thus far. Elliott is 5-1-0 with a 3.62 GAA and an .886 save percentage. He will face the Predators, who have found the back of the net only 63 times in 23 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: Sixth straight win
Elliott made 34 saves in a 5-2 win over Nashville on Thursday.
Coach Jon Cooper, who became the fastest coach to 450 wins with the victory, was effusive about Elliott after the game. "All he's doing is winning games for us," said Cooper. "He's making the big saves for us when we need them. He keeps us in it, and tonight we gave him a little run support." Only Mark Jankowski and Alexandre Carrier beat Elliott, who also picked up a shorthanded assist in the third period. He has now won six consecutive games. He's a valuable spot starter in some formats, simply because of the strength of the team around him. They help overcome his propensity to allow a few too many goals.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: Yields five goals, still wins
Elliott made 32 saves during Monday's 6-5 overtime victory over the host Sabres.
Idle since Nov. 15, Elliott allowed five goals but secured the Lightning's sixth win in their past seven games. The 37-year-old backup netminder made his first start since he allowed four goals during a win over the Stars. Elliott (5-1-0) claimed his fifth consecutive decision, but he has surrendered 12 goals on his past 93 shots.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: Starting in Buffalo
Elliott will guard the road goal Monday against Buffalo, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Elliott has won his past four outings, including a 28-save effort in 5-4 overtime win over Dallas on Nov. 15 during his last appearance. He has a 4-1-0 record this season with a 3.37 GAA and an .891 save percentage. Elliott will get the first half of Tampa Bay's back-to-back, which likely sets up Andrei Vasilevskiy to face Boston on Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: Hangs on for OT win
Elliott stopped 28 shots in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Stars.
The Lightning held three different one-goal leads during regulation in a back-and-forth contest, but Elliott couldn't stop Dallas from answering until Alex Killorn finally ended things in OT. It's the veteran goalie's fourth straight win, but he largely owes the victories to Tampa Bay's offense -- through five starts on the season, Elliott sports a 3.37 GAA and .891 save percentage....

Lightning's Brian Elliott: Starting Tuesday
Elliott will be between the pipes when the Lightning host the Stars on Tuesday, per Chris Krenn of the Lightning's official site.
It'll be Elliott's first start since Nov. 5, as he continues to back up Andrei Vasilevskiy. The veteran netminder is 3-1-0 on the season, picking up wins in his last three outings, with a .895 save percentage.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: Earns third win of season
Elliott made 21 saves in a 5-3 win over Buffalo on Saturday.
The game was tighter than the score indicated. It was knotted 2-2 after two, and the Sabres went up 3-2 early in the third when Jeff Skinner took a pass from Alex Tuch and scored around Elliott. The Bolts then tied things up, took the lead and sealed the win with an empty-net goal. Elliott improved to 3-1-0 despite a less than stellar 3.27 GAA and .895 save percentage, but as long as his team scores like they did Saturday, he'll stand a chance to earn the win.... See More ...

Lightning's Brian Elliott: Facing Buffalo
Elliott will guard the home cage against Buffalo on Saturday, according to Chris Krenn of the Lightning's official site.
Elliott will get his first start in four games as Andrei Vasilevskiy gets the night off. Elliott is 2-1-0 this season, having given up 10 goals on 100 shots. He'll face the Sabres, who have been surprisingly good this year, going 7-4-0 while averaging 4.18 goals per game.... See More ... See Less
Lightning's Brian Elliott: Wins in Anaheim
Elliott stopped 19 of 21 shots in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Ducks.
Elliott wasn't challenged that much in the contest. One of the goals came on a turnover, so it was a fairly solid performance for the 37-year-old goalie, who has won two of his three starts this year. He's also surrendered 10 goals on 100 shots. Elliott will see a light workload behind superstar Andrei Vasilevskiy, though the potential for the former to see favorable matchups makes him a solid option as a streamer or DFS play....

Lightning's Brian Elliott: Will get the nod Wednesday
Elliot is expected to start against Anaheim on Wednesday, per Ducks PA Announcer Phil Hulett.
Elliot was the first Lightning goalie out for the pregame warmups. He's firmly in the backup role, but Tampa Bay is sending him out because Andrei Vasilevskiy started in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to Los Angeles. Anaheim has gotten off to a rough 1-4-1 start, so Elliot has a good chance of coming out ahead Wednesday night.... See More ... See Less
