The St. Louis Blues just can't seem to shake a season-long injury bug.

The Blues placed goaltender Brian Elliott on long-term injured reserve Tuesday due to a lower-body injury. He will be re-evaluated in four weeks.

Elliott sustained the injury Monday against the San Jose Sharks. He left the game and did not return. The ailment comes just after Jake Allen returned in a backup role following a 17-game absence.

The 30-year-old Elliott was sensational in relief of Allen, going 12-3-2. He has a 2.14 GAA and .929 save percentage this season.
