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.

Blues' Allen Blanks Dallas

News: Jake Allen stopped all 28 shots he faced in Sunday's shutout win over Dallas.
Analysis: A good bounce-back outing from Jake Allen, who had given up nine goals in his last two appearances. The 24-year-old advances to 18-6-3 on the season with a .906 save percentage and 2.46 GAA. While it was a great outing for Allen, Brian Elliott is the starter in St. Louis and Allen likely won't see much more action down the stretch.

Jake Allen

Blues' Allen Set To Play Sunday

News: Jake Allen will be in the crease for Sunday's game against the Stars, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Analysis: The Blues will go with Brian Elliott for what projects to be the tougher matchup of the team's back-to-back set Saturday against the Wild, leaving Jake Allen to pick up Sunday's turn. Though the Stars are expected to miss the postseason, they still have plenty of offensive firepower at their disposal with Tyler Seguin, Jamie Benn, and Jason Spezza, making it far from a plum matchup for Allen, who has surrendered nine goals over his past two games. Tread carefully.

Jake Allen

Blues' Allen Pulled In Loss

News: Jake Allen was yanked from Sunday's game against Vancouver after giving up four goals on 21 shots.
Analysis: A tough night for Jake Allen, who has now given up nine goals in his last two games. The 24-year-old owns a 17-6-3 record on the season with a .903 save percentage and 2.55 GAA. He'll rebound, but Brian Elliott remains the clear starter for the Blues.

Blues Go With Allen on Sunday

News: Jake Allen is slated to start Sunday's game against the Canucks, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Jake Allen, who has given way Brian Elliott over the Blues' last two games, will look to bounce back from Tuesday's tough outing, in which he gave up five goals on 23 shots in a 5-2 loss to Montreal.

Blues' Allen Torched In Loss

News: Jake Allen was lit up for five goals on 23 shots Tuesday in a loss to Montreal.
Analysis: A hideous outing for the Blues' backup, who'd delivered three consecutive one-goal efforts coming in. While Jake Allen posts the occasional clunker, he's generally been a reliable spot starter when called upon.

2/23/2015

Blues Turn To Allen On Tuesday

News: Jake Allen is slated to start Tuesday's game against Montreal, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Analysis: Jake Allen -- who earned the win in Friday's 5-1 triumph over Boston -- returns to the St. Louis net Tuesday after giving way to Brian Elliott in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Penguins.

Blues' Allen Shuts Down Falling Bruins

News: Jake Allen made 26 saves on 27 shots in Friday's win over the Bruins.
Analysis: Jake Allen has been lights out of late, allowing just one goal in each of his last three appearances. He's won six straight games and is now 17-5-2 on the season with a .909 save percentage and 2.39 GAA. While he splits time with veteran Brian Elliott, Allen is fantasy gold whenever he gets the call.

Blues To Go With Allen On Friday

News: Jake Allen will be in the crease for Friday's game against the Bruins, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Analysis: The Blues will save No. 1 goalie Brian Elliott for Saturday's game against the Penguins, leaving Jake Allen for the reeling Bruins, who have dropped five straight games. Conversely, Allen has won his last five outings, while also sprinkling in an effective relief performance against the Stars on Tuesday. He'll represent a strong fantasy option in daily leagues for the Friday slate.

Blues' Allen Provides Relief In Loss

News: Jake Allen stopped 15 of 16 shots he faced after coming into Wednesday's loss to the Stars midway through the first period in relief of Brian Elliott.
Analysis: Despite his good work Wednesday, Jake Allen remains the clear backup to Elliott for the Blues. It is not certain who will start Friday's game against Boston.

Blues' Allen Shuts Down Coyotes

News: Jake Allen stopped 25 of 26 shots to outduel Arizona's Mike Smith in a 2-1 win Tuesday.
Analysis: That's the fifth consecutive winning decision for Jake Allen, who's slowly starting to pull his rate stats up. Even though this outing came against the lowly Coyotes, it's got to be a nice confidence-builder. The only problem is that his best play has come as Brian Elliott's backup -- when he had to step in as the full-time starter, Allen wasn't cutting the mustard.

Jake Allen, G, STL

Jake Allen

Blues Turn To Allen On Tuesday

News: Jake Allen will receive the start in goal Tuesday against the Coyotes, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Jake Allen's last outing came Friday in relief of Brian Elliott, but he had struggles of his own, allowing three goals on 19 shots. He will receive a turn in net again Tuesday, facing a Coyotes' offense that ranks near the bottom in goals per game (2.24) this season.

Blues' Allen Struggles In Relief Duty

News: Jake Allen stopped 16 of 19 shots in relief of Brian Elliott Saturday against the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: It wasn't a good night for either goaltender, as the Blues lost the game 7-1, snapping their 13-game point streak. We wouldn't worry too much about Jake Allen's performance, as he had won four straight games entering Friday, allowing just five goals in that span. With a 15-5-2 record, the 24-year-old remains a consistent and reliable fantasy option who should be in your lineup whenever Brian Elliott gets the night off.

Allen, Blues Shut Out Sabres

News: Jake Allen faced 23 shots and stopped all of them Thursday to deliver a 3-0 win over Buffalo. He also picked up his second assist of the season on Jaden Schwartz's empty-net goal.
Analysis: The sad-sack Sabres predictably turned out to be an easy mark for Jake Allen to pick up his third shutout of the year. His playing time's been spotty lately, as Allen drew only three January starts, though he played well in them, allowing just five total goals. In fact, Allen's won four straight, but he'll continue to take a back seat to Brian Elliott most nights.

Blues' Allen Gets Call For Thursday

News: Jake Allen will man the net for the Blues on Thursday against the Sabres, Joe Yerdon of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: The Sabres might have ended their 14-game losing streak with a stunning upset of the Canadiens earlier this week, but they're still a vulnerable team most every night. That's especially true against a juggernaut like the Blues, who probably won't even need a strong outing from Jake Allen to come away with the victory. That being said, Allen shouldn't have much difficulty suppressing the Sabres' attack, which has supplied a league-worst 1.78 goals per game -- a sizable drop from the 29th-ranked Hurricanes (2.12).

Allen Guides Blues Past Hurricanes

News: Jake Allen stopped 26 of 28 in shots in regulation, before denying all three Hurricanes' shooters in the shootout in Friday's win over Carolina.
Analysis: A solid effort from Jake Allen, who has won his last three games, surrendering just five goals in that span. While Brian Elliott is the Blues' starter, Allen, with his 14-5-2 record, makes for a good fantasy play whenever he gets the nod. Allen is also clutch in the skills competition, allowing just one shootout goal on 12 attempts this season. Those extra points could make or break you in your fantasy pool, so feel confident whenever Allen gets the call for the Blues.

Blues' Allen To Play Friday

News: Jake Allen will be in the crease Friday against the Hurricanes, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The Blues will enter the second half with three games in a four-day stretch, so Jake Allen will draw in for No. 1 goalie Brian Elliott for one of the contests. Fortunately for the young netminder, Friday's start against the Hurricanes, who rank third-worst in the league with 37 points on the season, is about as ideal of a matchup as it gets. Allen hasn't been nearly as sharp for the last two months as he was earlier in the season, but he's still an outstanding play against weaker opponents, given the tremendous all-around play of his mates.

Allen, Blues Beat Oilers; Water Still Blue

News: The Oilers put just 15 shots on goal against Jake Allen in Tuesday's game, and he turned away 13 of them in a 4-2 victory.
Analysis: Not a very shiny save percentage for Jake Allen in this one, but it was still good for his 13th win this season. The lowly Oilers don't offer much of a challenge, so it's not terribly surprising that Allen and the red-hot Blues -- winners of five straight -- were able to triumph. Brian Elliott will retake duties in net Thursday against the Wings.

Blues' Allen Draws Tuesday Start

News: Jake Allen will start Tuesday's game against the Oilers.
Analysis: With the Blues on a four-game winning streak, Jake Allen will draw a favorable matchup against the last-place Oilers on Tuesday, while Brian Elliott will start Thursday's game against Detroit.

Blues' Allen Makes 19 Saves In Relief, Wins In SO

News: Jake Allen appeared in relief Saturday. He stopped 19 of 20 shots through overtime and then all three Carolina attempts in the shootout.
Analysis: Jake Allen had spent five of six games since Dec. 27 in street clothes while Elliott and Martin Brodeur manned the net. But the kid is talented and looked great Saturday. He could soon start stealing time in the blue paint. Be ready.

Blues' Allen May Face Challenge From Elliott

News: Jake Allen's teammate, Brian Elliott (knee), was activated from injured reserve Tuesday morning.
Analysis: Jake Allen owns an 11-5-2 record for the season, but he also has an .899 save percentage and 2.76 GAA. The Blues will likely give Elliott a decent chunk of the playing time, though it's still unclear exactly how things will be divided. St. Louis is currently carrying three goaltenders, with Martin Broder -- who notched a shutout Monday night -- also on the roster.
