Elliott (20-8-2 with an NHL-leading 1.63 goals-against average and .937 save percentage) gets only his second start in 10 days and third in 18; Halak, who has accumulated the bulk of the starts recently, will get a day off and will start Sunday in Columbus.
Sanford started his NHL career with the Blues and played in St. Louis for parts of three seasons (2002-02 and 2005-07). York was recalled from the minors Friday to replace the injured Steve Mason (hand).
The Blue Jackets are without D Fedor Tyutin (hand), C Derek Mackenzie (concussion), LW Kristian Huselius (lower body), D Radek Martinek (concussion), D Marc Methot (jaw) and RW Jared Boll (foot). All are on injured reserve. RW Derek Dorsett (upper-body) is day-to-day. Mason will not play in either game this weekend against the Blues.
You could see out there that everybody was willing to compete, to sacrifice, even blocking shots to the end. Even in the third when we were up 5-0, guys were still working hard and blocking shots That's a nice feeling also for the future.
