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.

Blues' Allen Gives Up Four In Loss

News: Jake Allen gave up four goals on 24 shots in Saturday's loss to Dallas.
Analysis: Not the best night for Jake Allen, who has now lost three straight games, giving up a whopping 12 goals in that span. While he remains a top fantasy option with an 11-5-2 record, his .899 save percentage and 2.76 GAA is a tad alarming. While he will likely remain the starter with Brian Elliot (knee) out, expect Allen to lose a significant amount of starts once Elliot returns -- especially if the 24-year-old continues to struggle.

Jake Allen

Blues' Allen To Start Saturday

News: Jake Allen will start in net Saturday against the Stars, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Analysis: Jake Allen struggled in his last outing, allowing five goals on 31 shots before getting pulled during the game's second intermission. Allen has been inconsistent recently, winning three straight before giving up a total of eight goals in back-to-back losses. The 24-year-old goaltender will look to bounce back on Saturday against the Stars.

Blues' Allen Lasts Two Periods Tuesday

News: Jake Allen gave up five goals on 31 shots and was pulled at the second intermission Tuesday in a loss to the Avs.
Analysis: Martin Brodeur came on and stopped all 10 shots in relief, but the Blues couldn't get a single puck past Colorado goalie Semyon Varlamov. Jake Allen continues to struggle with inconsistent play, having given up eight goals over his last two games following a three-game winning streak.

Jake Allen

Blues' Allen To Start Tuesday

News: Jake Allen will start in net Tuesday against the Avalanche, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Jake Allen has received most of the starts in net recently following the injury to Brian Elliott. He is coming off a decent start in net, saving 27 of the 30 shots he faced. He will look for a strong finish Tuesday with a three-day Christmas break on the horizon.

Blues' Allen Shines In Overtime Loss

News: Jake Allen impressed Saturday, stopping all but three of the 30 shots he faced in an overtime loss to the Sharks.
Analysis: Another solid game for Jake Allen, who has allowed three or fewer goals in each of his last five outings. The 24-year-old is now 11-3-2 on the season with a .907 save percentage and 2.49 GAA. He needs to be in your lineup every night he gets the call in the Blues' crease.

Allen, Blues Looking For Road Victory

News: Jake Allen will be between the pipes Saturday against the Sharks, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Things have started to turn ugly for Jake Allen here in December, despite the fact that he's won each of his last three starts. He's posted a horrid .884 save percentage in five outings this month, which has resulted in him yielding more work to Martin Brodeur than anticipated. Still, with a powerful offense and strong defense supporting him, the wins should keep coming rather steadily for the struggling netminder.

Allen, Blues Unseat Kings

News: Jake Allen made 21 saves on 23 tries in Tuesday's win over the Kings -- his third straight victory.
Analysis: Jake Allen has been distinctly unspectacular this season, significantly underperforming relative to the expectations he set with his spectacular efforts for AHL Chicago last season, but perhaps this little stretch of winning hockey will give him some more confidence to stop pucks at a more impressive rate going forward. Allen's on a one-way contract this year, so it's unclear what the Blues will do with him and Martin Brodeur once Brian Elliott (knee) is ready to return, which should be soon.

Blues' Allen Likely Starter Tuesday

News: Jake Allen will be the starter Tuesday against the Kings, according to NHL.com's Lou Korac.
Analysis: Jake Allen has started two in a row for the Blues, coming away with wins both times, while stopping 48 of 53 shots he faced.

Blues' Allen Makes 23 Saves In Win

News: Jake Allen stopped 23 of the 25 shots he faced in Saturday's overtime win over the Avalanche.
Analysis: A solid outing for Jake Allen, who has now picked up a win in his last two starts. The 24-year-old is 10-3-1 on the season with a .907 save percentage and 2.50 GAA. While his rate starts aren't great, Allen has proven he can win games for the Blues this season, making him a key fantasy asset. With Brian Elliot (knee sidelined), look for Allen to continue to split time with Martin Brodeur.

Blues To Start Allen Saturday

News: Jake Allen will start in net Saturday against the Avalanche, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Jake Allen allowed three goals on 25 shots Thursday against the Islanders, but still received the win thanks to a big offensive effort from his team. He and Martin Brodeur could continue to split the starts until Brian Elliott (knee) returns, leaving the Blues with a decision to make.

Allen Wins As Blues Roll Over Isles

News: Jake Allen gave up three goals on 25 shots, but got plenty of help from his teammates Thursday in a 6-3 win over the Isles.
Analysis: It's another unspectacular start for Jake Allen, but another win nonetheless -- his ninth in 13 starts this year despite so-so rate stats. Allen's finished with a save mark under .900 in eight of his last 10 starts, and yet has gone 6-2-1 in that span.

Jake Allen

Blues' Allen To Draw Thursday Start

News: Jake Allen will be back in the crease Thursday versus the Islanders, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Jake Allen had one of the more difficult starts of his brief NHL career Saturday against the Islanders, yielding three goals on nine shots before he was pulled in favor of Martin Brodeur. However, coach Ken Hitchcock reiterated at Tuesday's practice that Allen is still the team's No. 1 goalie, so he'll reward the youngster with the chance to redeem himself in the rematch.

Jake Allen, G, STL Blues' Allen Yanked Saturday

Jake Allen

Blues' Allen Yanked Saturday

News: Jake Allen was pulled after allowing three goals on just nine shots in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Islanders.
Analysis: Martin Brodeur was unexpectedly thrust into action after the first period in relief of Jake Allen, who has given up 12 goals in his four starts since Brian Elliott (knee) went down. Owners should be a bit worried at this point given Allen's struggles to embrace St. Louis' starting role combined with the signing of Brodeur, and although it's not yet official, don't be surprised if Broduer gets the nod Monday against Florida.

Blues' Allen To Start Saturday

News: Jake Allen will be between the pipes Saturday against the Islanders, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Jake Allen gave way to new backup Martin Brodeur on Thursday night against the Predators, but only because it was the second game of a back-to-back set. Other than those scenarios, Allen is in line for a heavy slate of starts in place of the injured Brian Elliott, perhaps making him a top-10 fantasy goalie during that time. He owns an 8-3-1 record and 2.32 GAA over 12 outings.

Blues' Allen Allows Four In Loss

News: Jake Allen stopped 29 of the 33 shots he faced in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Blackhawks.
Analysis: With starter Brian Elliott (knee) out of the lineup for a while, Jake Allen was originally expected to get the majority of the starts in net for the time being. That could change now that the team has signed Martin Brodeur, who is expected to get his first start sometime this week.

Jake Allen

Blues' Allen Will Start Wednesday

News: Jake Allen will start Wednesday's game against the Blackhawks, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: With starter Brian Elliott week-to-week with a knee injury, Jake Allen should get the majority of the starts over the next month, although the team is expected to sign veteran netminder Martin Brodeur to play the role of experienced backup.

Allen's 36 Saves Help Blues Edge Wild

News: Jake Allen was phenomenal in Saturday's win over the Wild, stopping 36 of 38 shots in regulation, before denying all three Minnesota shooters in the shootout.
Analysis: Jake Allen is now 8-2-1 on the season with a .918 save percentage and 2.16 GAA. With Blues' starting goaltender Brian Elliott (knee) sidelined, Allen is absolute fantasy gold right now. Saturday was arguably Allen's best game in a Blues uniform, making him a must-add in most fantasy formats. The 24-year-old has only allowed nine goals in his last four games, establishing himself as a reliable and consistent fantasy option. Grab him while you can.

Blues' Allen Named Starter For Saturday

News: Jake Allen will be in goal for Saturday's game against the Wild, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Jake Allen, who picked up the win Friday, will start back-to-back nights for the first time this season with fellow goaltender Brian Elliott (knee) sidelined. He will be challenged Saturday by a Minnesota squad that has won six of its last eight contests.

Blues' Allen Steals Win Vs. Oilers Friday

News: Jake Allen was not especially sharp Friday against the Oilers, stopping just 13 of 16 shots, but still managed to come away with a 4-3 win thanks to Vladimir Tarasenko's overtime goal.
Analysis: This makes two consecutive games where Jake Allen has looked shaky, after coming in to relieve an injured Brian Elliott and coughing up a 2-0 lead Tuesday against Ottawa. The Blues have even gone so far as to invite Martin Brodeur to practice with the team this week, which suggests a reluctance on their part to rely on Allen as their full-time starting netminder. Allen may get another start Saturday against Nashville, but the outlook is cloudy beyond that, as Brodeur may wind up entering the picture as soon as next week. Fantasy owners should make sure they have a backup option at the ready, just in case Allen winds up on the bench.
