Brian Elliott opening the season in goal for Philadelphia
Philadelphia Flyers goalie Brian Elliott will start in goal on the road as the Flyers open their season against the San Jose Sharks on Wednesday.
Elliott struggled in 45 starts with the Calgary Flames last year, posting a 2.55 goals against average and .910 save percentage. Michal Neuvirth is expected to be the Flyers' primary starter this season, but he is sidelined with an illness tonight.
numberFire's models project Elliott for 15.1 fantasy points tonight -- projecting him for 2.6 goals allowed on 28.1 shots against, with 25.5 saves and a 40.0% chance of scoring a win. He is priced at $7,800 on FanDuel.
