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.

This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.
