Elliott hasn't been playing great of late, sure, but neither has the entire team.

Prior to tonight, they've scored 2 goals in the past 2 games. That isn't enough to win usually.
Yes, hockey is a team sport, and I probably shouldn't blame ALL of it on Elliot, but each player has a different magnitude of responsibility. The goaltending position is arguably the most important position in the game, and it's managed by 1 person. No matter how well we have played, we won't win games with our goaltender giving up 3 goals in 3 shots. You can't blame Oshie as much as you can blame Elliot.
