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 remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
