Elliott Surprise Starter

Coming through just a few minutes before the puck drop, it was announced that Brian Elliott was starting. Jaroslav Halak was the confirmed starter, but walked off the ice after warmups, and the next thing we knew, Elliott was skating into the net to start the game. The broadcast crew is assuming that Halak re-injured his groin. We are not changing the grid on the homepage because this literally just happened before the puck drop and after the warmup. One of those surprise last-second changes. The puck just dropped.
