Jaroslav Halak Injury: Halak Skates, But Will Miss Game 4

St. Louis Blues goalie Jaroslav Halak skated with the team during practice on Tuesday and is showing improvement in his ankle, which he injured in Game 2 after a collision with teammate Barrett Jackman, but has been ruled out for Game 4, according to head coach Ken Hitchcock.

The Blues will roll with back up Brian Elliott, who was stellar in the regular season and made 26 saves in St. Louis' 4-3 victory over the San Jose Sharks in Game 3. With the Blues up 2-1, there's no reason for the tema to rush Halak back, especially if Elliott continues to prove himself capable of manning the cage. Elliott will continue to be backed up by minor leaguer Jake Allen.
