ST. LOUIS - St. Louis Blues goaltender Jaroslav Halak has been ruled out for the remainder of the team's Western Conference semifinal series against the Los Angels Kings.

Halak was injured in Game 2 of the Blues' first-round victory over the San Jose Sharks after a collision with teammate Barret Jackman. Halak suffered a lower-body injury in the crash and has not played since.

Brian Elliott will stay in net for St. Louis for the rest of the series, which the Blues trail, 2-0.

In six games this postseason, Elliot has a 3-2 record with a .918 save percentage.

Halak and Elliott essentially split time between the pipes during the regular season, with the former making 46 starts and compiling a 1.97 goals against average and Elliott posting a 1.56 GAA over 38 games -- 36 starts.
