Blues' Allen Pulled In Game 6 Loss

News: Jake Allen was pulled from Sunday's series-ending Game 6 loss to the Wild after giving up two goals on 13 shots.
Analysis: Not a good night for Jake Allen, who had a disappointing postseason, posting a .904 save percentage. The 24-year-old is the goaltender of the future for the Blues, but he lost three of his last four playoff games, leading to the Blues elimination from the postseason. We wouldn't be too concerned, though, as he posted a solid 22-7-4 record in the regular season and was playing in his first NHL postseason. Have him on your radar next year.

Blues' Allen To Start Sunday

News: Jake Allen will be in net in Sunday's Game 6 against the Wild, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Despite his poor performance in Game 5, in which he allowed four goals on 19 shots, Jake Allen will get the call again for Game 6 on Sunday. It's hardly a surprise, however, as Friday's Game 5 marked the first time since March 1 that Allen allowed more than two goals. He'll need to be better in Game 6 for the Blues to have a shot at staving off elimination.

Blues, Allen Fall Flat In Game 5

News: Jake Allen stopped only 15 of 19 shots in Friday's Game 5 loss to the Wild.
Analysis: Though the Blues were nearly able to double the Wild up in shot attempts, the goalie play was the difference in this one, as Devan Dubnyk was dominant in the opposite net while Jake Allen turned in a substandard performance on his home ice. It was the first time Allen had given up more than two goals since March 1, so he'll still probably have plenty of leeway before ceding the net back to Brian Elliott. The pressure will be on Allen to help the Blues stave off elimination on the road in Game 6 on Sunday.

Blues' Allen Will Start Friday

News: Jake Allen will be between the pipes for Friday's Game 5 against the Wild, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Jake Allen didn't have to do too much in Game 4, as Minnesota only managed to fire a total of 18 shots on goal. However, he was still solid, turning away 17 of the 18 shots he faced. He'll look to build on that strong performance on Friday.

Blues' Allen Backstops Game 4 Win

News: Jake Allen stopped 17 of 18 shots he faced Wednesday in a 6-1 win over Minnesota in Game 4 of their series.
Analysis: Jake Allen got lots of support in this one, but was very solid, only allowing a power-play goal. He should be back between the pipes for Game 5 on Friday.

Blues Going With Allen For Game 4

News: Jake Allen will be in the net for Wednesday's Game 4 against the Wild.
Analysis: Jake Allen has held serve with Wild goalie Devan Dubnyk for the first three games of the series, posting a 1.68 GAA and .933 save percentage. Unfortunately, Allen hasn't received much support from his offense, which has put the Blues in a 2-1 hole entering Wednesday. If nothing else, Allen appears secure in his role as the No. 1 goalie, a development unforeseen just months earlier when Brian Elliott was playing in the All-Star Game.

Allen, Blues Fall In Game 3

News: Jake Allen turned aside 21 of 23 shots but was on the losing end of Monday's 3-0 game against the Wild in Game 3.
Analysis: Jake Allen has been solid through three playoff contests, posting a .933 save percentage while allowing just five total goals, but finds his team down 2-1 in the series nonetheless. With the trio of impressive performances, Allen figures to keep getting the starting nod from coach Ken Hitchcock going forward, but he'll need some more help in front of him for better results.

Blues' Allen Starts Game 3

News: Jake Allen will start in net for Game 3 against the Wild, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Jake Allen stopped 24 of the 25 shots he faced en route to a 4-1 win over the Wild in Game 2, so it comes as no surprise he'll be between the pipes once again. If he continues to play well, there's no reason to believe anything will change in that regard.

Blues' Allen Stops 24 Shots In Win

News: Jake Allen turned away 24-of-25 shots Saturday in a 4-1 win over the Wild.
Analysis: He barricaded the twine tent and was beaten only by a Marco Scandella slapper that snuck past him after the Wild defender broke his stick on the shot. He survived another couple close calls and was aided by the posts and his defenders.

Blues Will Turn To Allen Again For Game 2

News: Coach Ken Hitchcock indicated after Thursday's Game 1 that Jake Allen will be in net again for Game 2 against the Wild, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Jake Allen was praised by Hitchcock following Monday's game, with the coach saying his play was "great." The netminder finished the contest with 25 saves on 27 shots, but it wasn't enough as the Blues fell 4-2. It appears he may be the favorite to start moving forward, but Brian Elliott is also available should Allen falter.

Blues' Allen Stops 25 In Game 1 Loss

News: Jake Allen played well in Thursday's Game 1 against Minnesota, stopping 25 of 27 shots, but it wasn't enough in a 4-2 loss.
Analysis: Thanks to a quirky last minute-plus, Jake Allen actually gave up as many goals as opposing netminder Devan Dubnyk, as the Wild potted two empty-netters. Despite Allen's strong play, it remains to be seen how the Blues will parcel out the goalie time going forward following the loss.

Jake Allen

Blues' Allen Draws Start In Playoff Opener

News: Jake Allen will be between the pipes for Game 1 of the Blues' first-round playoff series against the Wild, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: After sticking with his struggling veteran netminder last postseason in Ryan Miller, coach Ken Hitchcock decided not to go down that path again, as the up-and-coming Jake Allen will draw the nod over Brian Elliott, who slumped badly down the stretch. Allen earned the trust of the coaching staff by allowing two or fewer goals in each of his last seven starts, earning the win on five of those occasions. Despite his strong play, Allen's lack of postseason experience may give him a short leash in the event he unexpectedly struggles in Game 1.

Allen Leads Blues Over Blackhawks

News: Jake Allen stopped 21 of 22 shots Thursday in a 2-1 win against the Blackhawks.
Analysis: The red-hot Jake Allen continues making things awfully tough on the Blues, having now delivered four straight one-goal efforts. Maybe Brian Elliott plays Saturday in a playoff tuneup, and maybe Elliott draws the initial playoff start, but you get the feeling that if the Blues lose one postseason game with Elliott in net, they'll turn right to Allen. And they should, considering the way he's playing right now.

Blues Stick With Allen For Thursday

News: Jake Allen will be in the crease for Thursday's game against the Blackhawks, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Jake Allen was on the losing end of Tuesday's game against the Jets, but he gave up just one goal on 31 shots, as he was outdueled by Ondrej Pavelec. Despite the defeat, Allen still has performed far better than Brian Elliott the last couple of weeks, which puts the Blues in a bit of a bind as the postseason approaches. Coach Ken Hitchcock recently reiterated that Elliott would be his No. 1 goalie heading into the playoffs, but Allen's continued dominance may ultimately force his hand.

Blues' Allen Stuck With Hard-Luck Loss Tuesday

News: Jake Allen made 30 saves, but the one goal he gave up was one too many in a 1-0 loss to Winnipeg on Tuesday.
Analysis: So ends Jake Allen's three-game winning streak, but not his run of hot play, as he's delivered save marks of .920 or better in six consecutive starts. The Blues have two games left, both at home -- against the Blackhawks on Thursday and the Wild on Saturday -- and it seems likely that Allen will start at least one of them as the Blues gear up for the playoffs.

Blues Turn To Allen On Tuesday

News: Jake Allen is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Jets, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The Blues will stick with the hot hand Tuesday, with Jake Allen having earned wins in his last three starts, including Sunday's 2-1 triumph over Chicago.

Blues' Allen Makes 38 Saves In Win

News: Jake Allen was phenomenal Sunday, stopping 38 of 39 shots in a win over Chicago.
Analysis: What a performance from Jake Allen, who is now 10-1-2 in his last 13 games. He's allowed just six goals in his last four games, dropping his GAA to 2.36 -- 16th best in the NHL. With Brian Elliott struggling, the Blues could continue to play the hot hand and keep the 24-year-old Allen rolling.

Blues' Allen In Net Sunday

News: Jake Allen will be between the pipes for Sunday's game against the Blackhawks, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Analysis: Though the Blues were able to escape with a 7-5 win Friday night, Brian Elliott's recent swoon could be warranting some concern with the postseason approaching. Coach Ken Hitchcock has continued to stand by Elliott as his No. 1 netminder, but Jake Allen's workload has begun to increase in recent weeks, and may not die down in the near future. Allen has won three of his last five starts, posting a .936 save percentage during that stretch.

Allen, Blues Cruise To Win

News: Jake Allen stopped 17 of 18 shots Thursday in a 4-1 win over Calgary.
Analysis: The Blues' skaters put a whopping 42 shots on Jonas Hiller on the other end while largely keeping the Flames far away from Jake Allen. While he's seen limited action, Allen has been a generally reliable option between the pipes whenever he does get the call over Brian Elliott.

Blues Turn To Allen On Thursday

News: Jake Allen is slated to start Thursday's game against the Flames, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Analysis: Jake Allen will get the team's starting nod Thursday, with Brian Elliott having dropped his last four decisions. Allen was victorious in his last turn for the Blues, stopping 24 of 26 shots in a 3-2 overtime win over the Penguins on March 24.

Allen Guides Blues To Win

News: Jake Allen saved 24 of 26 shots Tuesday in a 3-2 overtime victory against the Penguins.
Analysis: He gave up the game's two goals in a 17-second span during the second period, but locked things down thereafter while St. Louis was able to mount a comeback, which Alex Steen finished with the game-winner in overtime. Jake Allen's now started consecutive games over Brian Elliott, and he's played well, but it's hard to imagine that he's truly pushing Elliott to the side. Both goalies have had their share of inconsistency, but Allen's has arguably been worse.

Blues Turn To Allen On Tuesday

News: Jake Allen is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Penguins, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Analysis: Jake Allen, who allowed two goals on 25 shots in Sunday's 2-1 overtime loss to Detroit, will be making his second straight start for the Blues, on the heels of taking over for Brian Elliott, who was pulled from Saturday's loss to the Wild.

Blues' Allen Takes Loss In OT

News: Jake Allen allowed two goals on 25 shots in Sunday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Red Wings.
Analysis: It was a solid outing for Jake Allen, but he's now picked up the loss in three of his last four starts. Even after Sunday, the 24-year-old still sports an impressive 18-6-4 record, 2.46 GAA, and .906 save percentage. He's been fairly reliable when called upon, but Brian Elliott will see the majority of the starts down the stretch, so Allen likely won't get the nod too many more times this season.

Blues' Allen Comes On In Relief Saturday

News: Jake Allen came on in relief of Brian Elliott on Saturday stopping 10 of 12 shots he faced against the Wild. The Blues took a 6-3 loss in the contest.
Analysis: Jake Allen is scheduled to get the start Sunday against Detroit.

Blues Tab Allen For Sunday Start

News: Jake Allen will be in the cage for Sunday's game against the Red Wings, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Jake Allen was due to get a start for one half of the Blues' weekend back-to-back set, and coach Ken Hitchcock decided to save the netminder for Detroit due to Brian Elliott's strong career numbers against the Wild. After rough showings his previous two turns, Allen appeared to get back on track his last time out Mar. 15 against the Stars, denying all 28 shots he faced to claim his fourth shutout of the season.
