Jaroslav Halak ruled out of Game 3
Coach Ken Hitchcock ruled Halak out of Monday night's game in San Jose because of the hard hit he took from teammate Barret Jackman in the second period Saturday night in a St. Louis' 3-0 win that tied the series at a game apiece.
Brian Elliott stopped all 17 shots he faced to complete the shutout and will start Game 3.
Elliott led the league with a 1.56 goals-against average in the regular season as the Blues regularly used two goaltenders.
