Brian Elliott Injured In First Period, Leaves Game

Jake Allen got an earlier return to work than he expected.

The Blues absolutely cannot catch a break. Earlier this week, we were all complaining about how just when the Blues get Jake Allen back from injury, that Alexander Steen had to go down.

The Hockey Gods saw those complaints and replied with a hearty "challenge accepted."

After an absolutely awful start to the game, with Ryan Reaves' ejection and three goals against, the Blues' night got significantly worse. Brian Elliott was injured on the Sharks' third goal of the game, where he appears to overextend his knee.

Please no one ask "what's next?" You don't want to know.
