ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis Blues goalie Jaroslav Halak was a late scratch from Monday's game against the Los Angeles Kings.

Halak was on the ice for pre-game warmups and was listed as the official starter, but Brian Elliott was announced as the starting goalie.

No official word has been announced by the Blues, but it is believed that Halak re-aggravated the groin injury that sidelined him for the previous three-plus games.

Quote of the Day

I'm very excited about what happened today. We've worked on this deal with Toronto for a month, or over a month. It got a little bit of legs on draft day, but it really heated up last night, and we were able to complete the deal today.
