Blues’ Brian Elliott leaves Monday’s game with apparent injury

Watch the hit that saw Ryan Reaves get three games from Player Safety. He crunches Matt Tennyson against the boards and was ejected after Tennyson is helped off the ice.

St. Louis goalie Brian Elliott has left the Blues’ game against San Jose with an apparent injury.

At the 12:59 of the first period, San Jose’s Logan Couture pushed the puck past Elliott for a power-play goal, giving the Sharks a 3-0 lead on Monday night.

There was a jumble of bodies in front of the net on the play. Elliott went down to block the shot, and the puck squirted past him.

After Blues trainers came out, Elliott left the ice and went to the locker room.

Jake Allen replaced him. The Blues activated Allen from injured reserve Sunday.

Allen sustained a lower-body injury on Jan. 8 against Anaheim and has missed 17 games.
