Brian Elliott should be comfortable here in Tampa Bay. He's three and zero against the Bolts when he's faced them, and has a tiny 1.33 GAA. Of course, this is just business as usual for the guy called Moose. Elliott has been stellar in goal since Jake Allen's injury, and Friday night the Blues repaid him with goal support.
It's no secret that goals have been hard to come by for this team, which is what made it even more special when Jaden Schwartz, out since late October, returned and added a goal and assist in the win. The Blues may need another showing like Friday this afternoon in Tampa Bay. Sometimes the Bolts' offense goes through lulls, but they're capable of some dangerous explosions.
