ST. Bobby Wagner Jersey . LOUIS - Brian Elliott was a big Toronto Maple Leafs fan while growing up in Ontario. So the St. Louis Blues goalie got a little extra satisfaction out of shutting them out.Elliott stopped 27 shots for his third shutout of the season and 28th of his career as the Blues topped the slumping Maple Leafs 3-0 on Saturday night.Its awesome, Elliott said. Its all about the two points, but I grew up bleeding blue for the Maple Leafs. Its fun to go out and get a shutout against them for sure.After allowing three goals in each of his last two games, Elliott got back on track with his 19th shutout for the Blues.Blues defenceman Alex Pietrangelo said there was never any doubt about Elliotts play.Weve had no questions inside this room, Pietrangelo said. We know what he can do. Tonights a prime example; outstanding performance by him. I thought we did a great job, too, eliminating second chance opportunities. Hes pushing pucks where they cant get them and were clearing in front of the net.Its a good overall effort defensively.Elliott, who missed nearly five weeks earlier this season with a knee sprain, moved to the top spot in the NHL in goals against average at 1.90 and fourth in save percentage at .929.Blues coach Ken Hitchcock thought Elliott was back at the top of his game.This is, for me, the best hes played, Hitchcock said. Not just because he got a shutout, but this is the best hes played since coming back from the injury, for sure. He had work today because we gave up odd-man rushes. We dont normally do that, but we gave up some.Alexander Steen extended his scoring streak to a career-high nine games with a goal and an assist, and Kevin Shattenkirk and T.J. Oshie also had goals for St. Louis. The win was No. 685 for Hitchcock, who passed former Maple Leafs coach Pat Quinn and moved into sole possession of fifth place on the career victories list.St. Louis is 4-0-1 during its seven-game homestand and has earned a point in eight straight games. The Blues, who have not lost to Toronto since Jan. 29, 2008 (6-0-2), are 11-3-2 against Eastern Conference teams, best in the NHL.David Backes added two assists for the Blues, extending his scoring streak to six games. Backes has 13 points in those six games (seven goals, six assists).Jonathan Bernier made 30 saves for the Maple Leafs, who went 0-4 on their four-game road trip and were outscored 12-1, including being shut out three times. The Maple Leafs are 1-7 in January.Its frustrating, Bernier said. We go back home after we score one goal and get no points. I know I have got to be better and make that extra save that keeps us in the game.Toronto got the jump on the Blues, outshooting them 15-6 at the start. But the Blues got the first goal when Shattenkirk got the puck on the right boards, walked into the right circle and beat Bernier with a backhander at 16:40 of the first period.There were some positive things in the first period before they scored that goal, said Toronto interim head coach Peter Horachek. We are a team that has to be at our strongest now. Were going to have to be mentally tougher.It stayed 1-0 until Steen beat Bernier with another backhander from in front 1:38 into the third period.Hes extremely patient as a goalie, and doesnt really bite on a lot of stuff, said Steen, who waited out Bernier and then lifted the puck over him. I was just trying to wait as long as I could.Steen then set up Oshie on a 2-on-1 with 5 minutes left for the final margin.NOTES: Defenceman Roman Polak, who spent eight seasons with the Blues before being traded to Toronto for fellow defenceman Carl Gunnarsson in the off-season, returned to St. Louis for the first time and received a big ovation when announced as a starter before the game. ...

The league and CFL Players Association havent met since talks broke down last Wednesday when the CFL rejected a union proposal, then publicly revealed details of its last offer in separate letters to players and fans. Training camps are slated to open Sunday. "Were going to wait to get in that room Wednesday to see how it goes before any determination is made," CFLPA president Scott Flory said when asked if he expected players to report to camp. "Weve had internal discussions on that and we have strategies in place. "As you well know, it has been well documented (strike) ballots have been sent out to our players. Well cross that bridge Wednesday and see how it goes." The current collective bargaining agreement expires at midnight ET on Thursday. Flory has said union members wouldnt play under terms of the existing deal. The regular season is slated to kick off June 26. There has been one players strike since the formation of the CFLPA in 1965. It came in 74 and lasted three weeks during training camp before a three-year agreement was signed with no regular-season games lost. Revenue sharing is the main stumbling block in the negotiations, with the players wanting it back in the new agreement after conceding it in the last deal signed before the 2010 season. CFL commissioner Mark Cohon has said the league wont agree to revenue sharing because it doesnt have sufficient revenues and profits for the model to work effectively. Cohon and Michael Copeland, the CFLs president and chief operating officer, were not available for comment Tuesday. A league spokesman said both were busy preparing for Wednesdays session. But Flory said revenue sharing remains a focal point of the players associations offer, adding the union warned the league four years ago that it would be. "They came to us four years ago and we understood the situation," Flory said. "We took it off . . . but it was also stated clearly there was going to be discussions and we were going to want this back. "The term revenue sharing seems to be a pretty big, scary word out there right now and its not. What were talking about here is a system where the cap — which is a cap, its a maximum on what you can spend — is somehow connected to the monies that are being generated, is somehow tied to revenue. Through good and bad, it goes up or it goes down and the players are willing to share in that because its a successful model that exists out there. We understand that its not the NFL but were just on a smaller scale." The players key demand comes at a ttime of economic prosperity for the CFL, which for decades was on thin ice financially. Nick Vannett Jersey. The league has a new contract extension with athletic apparel giant Reebok. One of its teams (Winnipeg) moved into a new stadium last season and another (Hamilton) is scheduled to do so this year, the same time expansion Ottawa will return and play at a refurbished facility. And with attendance continuing to rise and corporate sponsorships remaining strong, the CFL is buoyed by a lucrative five-year television agreement with TSN, reportedly worth an average of $42 million annually, that kicks in this season. That deal alone will reportedly net clubs an extra $2.7 million each this season, a fact not lost upon Flory. "The increased revenue is based on the product on the field and the players are the product," he said. "Our guys are full-time athletes . . . and deserve to be compensated fairly for it. "Were not asking for anything more than whats fair. Actually what were asking for is substantially less than the other professional associations." The league has offered to boost the average player salary by 12 per cent this season to $92,917 with a further increase over the following five years. The salary cap would increase by nine per cent from $4.4 million to $4.8 million per team while the average salary would go up $5,000 to $50,000 with a further increase to $55,000 over the following five years. The salary cap would also rise by $100,000 per team if the CFL receives more television revenue from TSN under a renegotiated broadcast agreement for each remaining year of the collective bargaining agreement. The CFLPA, which contends the average player stipend is just under $72,000, is asking for a $6.24-million cap, with a $5.84-million minimum. The 15 cap would be determined from the gross average revenue of seven clubs — excluding the top and lowest-grossing franchises. The proposal also calls for the players to receive 55 per cent of gross revenues from TV rights, pay TV rights, radio, Internet and any other form of broadcast or telecast of CFL games, 45 per cent of revenues from sponsorship and licensing and 40 per cent of tickets to pre-season and regular-season games, including the sale of luxury boxes, licenses and any other revenue related to the public attending at games. Flory, a former Montreal Alouettes offensive lineman, says there are plenty of non-monetary issues the two sides can agree on and bridge whatever gaps last weeks impasse might have caused. "I think we should be able to negotiate all the issues at the table, to be honest with you," he said. "We have to be able to build a partnership and have some kind of an agreement there which truly is a partnership."
