HAZELWOOD, Mo. -- St. Louis Blues goaltender Brian Elliott said he will be in goal Thursday against the Chicago Blackhawks (8:30 p.m. ET; FS-MW, CSN-CH, NHL.TV) after sustaining an apparent hand injury during practice Wednesday.
During a warmup drill Elliott took a shot off the inside of his blocker and immediately left the ice. But in comments given to the Blues' Twitter account, he said he felt OK.
"[I'm] totally fine," he said. "It happens every day in practice, you're always taking shots. With all the injuries, we have people get a little sensitive but I'm all good and ready to go for tomorrow."
