Yeah I feel the same way. I don't think the Blues would have beaten the Kings, but they may have won a game if Halak was in net. I compare Elliott in the regular season to playoffs, the way I compare the Devils penalty killing in the regular season to playoffs. Pretty bad. He seemed to have a gaping 5 hole that whole series, and Halak while not having the absurd save percentage numbers last season is just so much better it isn't even funny.
