Blues activate G Jaroslav Halak from injured list to serve as backup to Elliott vs. Flames

ST. LOUIS - Blues goalie Jaroslav Halak has been activated from the injured list after missing 12 games because of a groin injury.

Halak was activated before Thursday night's game against the Calgary Flames, and he served as the backup to St. Louis starter Brian Elliott. Halak hasn't played since April 1.

Halak (6-5-1) entered the season as the Blues' No. 1 goalie, but because of groin problems has been limited to only 16 games.

Quote of the Day

I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
