No this team isn't playing great. Not acceptable at all. They have been sloppy, not playing as physical, not getting pucks in deep at all, turning the puck over, they are NOT playing the system.

Yeah Elliott is ******* and drained the energy out of the team tonight but take off your homer glasses because you don't know what you're talking about. The Blues are not playing great. We're at .500 since the home opener and that was an easy win because Detroit wasn't prepared at all.
Agreed. Elliott is playing terribly, but the team has been terrible lately as well.

The second period looked worse tonight than it really was because Elliot let in 3 goals in 3 shots. It boggles my mind how you think thats reflective of everyone else. The Blues scored 5 goals tonight with 31 shots. Why is that not good?

I was referring to "as of tonight." Not referring to last game or the game before. Don't make the same damn assumption he did. We scored 5 goals in 31 shots tonight and battled hard. The second period mistakes were magnified by Elliot letting in 3 goals in 3 shots. Overall, solid game.

I'm sure a lot of fans would be happy with a 6-4-1 record

Blues are fine, yes they're playing poorly these past couple of games but its nothing to draw conclusions to

Strongly disagree. The second period was garbage by most of the team. Elliot sucked but he was not alone.

Because being outscored 16(not including the shootout)-7 the last 3 games doesn't mean that Elliott is the only one struggling?

Some off the goals Elliott could do nothing about and some were his fault, but he was not the sole reason for losing. If we cut down on the mental mistakes, we win.

So lets ignore the 1st and 3rd period including OT and just focus on some lapses in the second and conclude that the Blues aren't playing well. Okay!

Yes, he was.

Game 1, Blues dominate and outshoot Preds 33-16, lose 4-2 when Halak turns in .800 save percentage and loses the team the game, flat out.

Game 2, Blues beat Calgary 5-2. Halak allows 2 goals but is barely tested with 17 shots. Save percentage .882.

(Game 3, Elliott starts and steals two points in San Jose.)

Game 4, Blues outplay Dallas but lose 3-2 when Halak turns in an .875 night, 3 goals on 24 shots.

Game 5, Blues outplay Anaheim on the road but lose when Halak allows 4 goals on 23 shots with a .826 save percentage.

Game 6, Halak is awful in LA, allowing 4 goals on 18 shots and is pulled for Elliott. Save percentage .778

(Game 7-10 Elliott starts, during this stretch he goes 3-1-0 with a .947 and allows 6 goals in 4 games.)

Game 11, Halak doesn’t play again until at Edmonton, where he stinks again in a loss, allowing 4 goals on 30 shots for a .867 save percentage.

So you actually don't have the facts on your side, no matter how much you love the guy.

The Blues are giving up way too many quality chances. It's not all on Elliot. Mostly, just not all.

GOALS ARE THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS.

How can you not see that the Blues are playing a horrible team game? Get real.

The thing is, this team hasn't been only playing bad for one game. Sure, if it was just tonight, I don't think there would be this much discussion about the team's overall performance. However, when the team has given up 5 goals + in 4 consecutive games while being outscored during that time period 21-10, there is a problem much larger than just goalie play.

The team is fine right now. Just wait until Halak comes back. I'm not worried at all. The guys battled back and played pretty well overall. It's hard to sustain that momentum when Elliot is letting in 2 soft goals. You can sit around and be unhappy all you want after the Blues nearly won the game after taking control of the 3rd period and OT.

Blues 31 shots
Anaheim 24 shots

And that's on the ENTIRE team not just one player. We have made so many mental errors defensively it isn't even funny.

Not really. Elliot 2 games ago let in 4 goals in 11 shots. Tonight he lets in 3 goals in 3 shots. Keep defending Elliot. I'm going to go do my organic chemistry homework. Good night.

If that's possible, they wouldn't have lost 3 in regulation and 1 in a shoot out over the past 4 games while being outscored 21-10 during that time period.

Like Halak is going to be the savior. I think some people here are in for a reality check. The team as a whole has dropped 4 in a row, Halak isn't going to turn this ship around himself unless he gets extremely hot, but since he's coming back from an INJURY to his groin, I am not expecting that. This team has flaws.

They had lapses in the third and OT as well. Their OT was not that great. ANH had plenty of puck possession. Playing well for 2/3rd of the game and playing horrid for the other third does not equate to playing well in my book.

You mean if I say Elliott played terribly and cost the team the game but point out Halak didn't get this much hate when he was this terrible last year and then am challenged on the point and then factually respond to the challenge am I Elliott's publicist? Yeah, smart take.
