Brian Elliott plays goal with baseball glove in hilarious practice (VIDEO)
St. Louis Blues goalie Brian Elliott has been relegated to the bench while netminding partner Jake Allen seized the top role in net for now thanks to his fourth-best save percentage in the league (.936). But while Elliott does not play much in actual games, he has been showing off his sense of humor in practice.
The goaltender posted videos of himself in practice playing with a shortened stick and a baseball glove while exaggerating his movements on saves.
Elliott is 4-1-1 this season with a .887 save percentage and earned playing time in just two of six games so far this month. He allowed six goals on 31 shots through those two games. Allen has been a bit inconsistent over his last four games, earning back-to-back shutouts in wins over Nashville and New Jersey but was pulled in his next game after allowing three goals on five shots.
The Blues suffered a disappointing loss Saturday to the Chicago Blackhawks after allowing three unanswered goals against in the final 25 minutes of the game.
