However, the goalie re-injured the area during warm-ups and was scratched just before game time. he is now expected to miss another week while recovering. Halak is 3-0-0 in five starts this season with a .889 save percentage and 2.10 goals against average. The Blues have lost all four games since Halak's injury, allowing four or more goals in each contest.

It was bound to happen in a shortened season crammed with games with little time in between for proper rest. Expect more of the same.

Afraid you are probably right.

The Blues are really hurting without Halak. This year's Elliott has looked nothing like last year's Elliott.

all these groin injuries....maybe they should take gymnastics and ballet before playing.......specifically, practice doing the splits so they don't pull anything they shouldn't pull.
