Blues fans will see Elliott in goal tonight for Calgary

ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- After a 32-save performance and picking up his first win in a Calgary uniform, Flames coach Glen Gulutzan will turn back to 'Moose.'

Elliott, who didn't get the start when the Blues were in Calgary on Saturday, was a perfect 7-for-7 in the shootout and helped the Flames down the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2.

Also, right wing Troy Brouwer, who spent one season with the Blues after being acquired in a trade with the Washington Capitals for T.J. Oshie, will make his return to Scottrade Center tonight for the first time.

Brouwer did play Saturday and had an assist for the Flames.

Hutton back in goal tonight vs. Flames

ST. LOUIS -- Carter Hutton wants to pick up where he left off. Maybe not the volume of shots he faced or the fact that the Blues were playing three players short before holding off a furious New York Rangers push in the third period of a 3-2 Blues victory, but Hutton, who will get the start today when the Blues get a rematch with the Calgary Flames (7 p.m.; FSN, KMOX 1120-AM), hopes to build off a 33-save performance and a solid outing.

The Blues' projected lineup:

Robby Fabbri-Paul Stastny-Alexander Steen

David Perron-Jaden Schwartz-Vladimir Tarasenko

Dmitrij Jaskin-Patrik Berglund-Nail Yakupov

Scottie Upshall-Kyle Brodziak-Ryan Reaves

Jay Bouwmeester-Alex Pietrangelo

Carl Gunnarsson-Kevin Shattenkirk

Joel Edmundson-Colton Parayko

Carter Hutton will start in goal. Jake Allen will be the backup.

The healthy scratches are Robert Bortuzzo, Ty Rattie and Magnus Paajarvi. Jori Lehtera (upper body) is day to day.
