ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis Blues goalie Brian Elliott left the game Monday against the San Jose Sharks because of a lower-body injury.

Elliott, who started 18 consecutive games for the injured Jake Allen, appeared to injure himself trying to make a save on the Sharks' third goal in the first period, scored by Logan Couture with 7:01 remaining. He then skated off with head athletic trainer Ray Barile.

Allen, who had not played since a knee injury on Jan. 8 and was activated off injured reserve Sunday, replaced Elliott.

Elliott was 12-3-2 with a 1.76 goals-against average and .943 save percentage in 17 starts since Allen was injured. He entered Monday leading the NHL in GAA (2.06) and save percentage (.931).
