(HockeyStL) -- While the astounding statistics are hard to shy away from, for Blues goaltender Brian Elliott, it is all about keeping the Blues in the win column.

Despite have some of the best stats among goaltenders in the NHL this season, Elliott says it’s not about the stats.

“I try not to look at numbers throughout the season. I look at the win column, that’s what really matters,” he says.

Whatever Elliott chooses to do, it is working. The Blues have won four straight as they head to Columbus for a face-off with the Blue Jackets tonight.
