Jake Allen allowed four goals on 23 shots in Friday's 4-0 loss to the Winnipeg Jets.
The Blues have simply fallen apart over the last little while. They've lost four consecutive games and it appears as though their playoff hopes are slipping more and more every day. They gave up three goals in the first period of tonight's game and they were never able to recover. Allen now has a 19-18-2 record with a 2.75 goals-against-average and a .906 save percentage this season. He's been between the pipes for three of St. Louis' last five losses. Feb 23 - 11:12 PM

Date:

St. Louis will likely start Jake Allen Friday night.

That's based on Allen being the first goaltender off the ice following the morning skate, which is usually a good way of telling who the starter will be. Allen is 19-17-2 with a 2.72 GAA and .908 save percentage in 41 games this season.
Feb 23 - 2:21 PM

Jake Allen allowed two goals on 16 shots in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Dallas Stars.

Allen kept the Stars off the board in the opening frame, but he surrendered a power play tally to Mattias Janmark early in the second period. The Stars then went up 2-0 midway through the third period and never looked back. Allen has now dropped seven of his last eight decisions. He has a 19-17-2 record with a 2.72 goals-against-average and a .908 save percentage this season.
Feb 16 - 11:22 PM

Jake Allen will play between the pipes on Friday.

Feb 16 - 2:23 PM

Jake Allen allowed three goals on 22 shots in a 4-1 loss to Pittsburgh on Sunday in matinee action.

Allen has lost ground in the battle for starts to Carter Hutton and games like this won't help. Hutton could be in line to face his old Nashville teammates on Tuesday in St. Louis' next contest. Allen has a 19-16-2 record with a 2.74 goals-against average and .908 save percentage this year.
Feb 11 - 4:25 PM

Jake Allen will be between the pipes Sunday afternoon versus Pittsburgh.

Allen will get his second straight start after he stopped 20 shots in a 5-2 win over Winnipeg on Friday. He is trying to wrestle the number one job back from Carter Hutton after he struggled mightily in January. Allen has a 19-15-2 record with a 2.73 goals-against average and .909 save percentage this season.
Feb 11 - 10:51 AM

Jake Allen stopped 20 of 22 shots in Friday's 5-2 win over the Winnipeg Jets.

Allen hasn't been playing with a ton of confidence lately, but his teammates helped him out by spotting him a three-goal lead in the second period. The win put an end to his personal five-game losing streak. The 27-year-old now has a 19-15-2 record with a 2.73 goals-against-average and a .909 save percentage this season. Expect him to continue to serve as Carter Hutton's backup goalie for now.
Feb 10 - 12:15 AM

Jake Allen will get the start in Friday's game against the Winnipeg Jets.

Carter Hutton played on Thursday, so Allen will get the nod tonight. Allen comes into tonight's game having lost each of his last five decisions dating back to Dec. 27. He has an 18-15-2 record with a 2.75 goals-against-average and a .909 save percentage this season.
Feb 9 - 7:38 PM

Jake Allen stopped 43 of 45 shots in a 3-1 loss to the Boston Bruins.

Allen's best period came in the second when he stopped all 22 shots he faced, with several of them being high quality chances. He has now lost nine of his last 10 games, dropping his record to 18-15-2 with a 2.65 goals against average and a .911 save percentage. Coming off such a strong game, it'll be interesting to see if the Blues go back to Carter Hutton on Saturday against the Buffalo Sabres.
Feb 1 - 10:10 PM

Jake Allen will start for the St. Louis Blues on Thursday.

It will be Allen's first start since Jan. 9 and his first game in general since Jan. 20. Allen has a 18-14-2 record, 2.74 GAA, and .909 save percentage in 36 contests this season. Those mediocre numbers combined with Carter Hutton's stellar play has raised questions about Allen's role as the team's number one goaltender. Allen will need to prove that he should remain in that position or he might find himself starting rarely down the stretch.
Feb 1 - 4:00 PM

Jake Allen probably won't have to wait long after the All-Star break to get his next start.

Allen hasn't started a game since Jan. 9 and he hasn't played since Jan. 20, as the Blues ride the hot hand of Carter Hutton. "We don't want him sitting around for four or five weeks," coach Mike Yeo said of Allen. "We're going to have to get him going very quickly after the break, but that's the decision we made for today." Hutton made his fifth consecutive start on Thursday and he has played nine of the past 11.
Jan 26 - 11:24 AM

Jake Allen allowed five goals on 23 shots and got the hook in Tuesday's 7-4 loss against the Panthers.

It was a bit shocking that Florida was able to come into the Gateway City and toss up a seven-spot. He has now allowed five goals in each of his past two starts, and three or more goals in six of his past eight appearances. Allen is only worth using as a No. 2 fantasy backstop right now until he starts to show a little more consistency.
Jan 10 - 12:50 AM

Jake Allen will be back in goal Tuesday when he Blues host the Florida Panthers.

Allen was beaten five times on 38 shots in a loss to Philadelphia on Saturday. Coach Mike Yeo didn't like the way team played in front of him, so he'll get another chance. Allen has a mark of 18-13-2 in 2017-18 with a 2.64 goals-against average and a .911 save percentage.
Jan 9 - 2:18 PM

Jake Allen allowed five goals on 38 shots in a 6-3 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.

The woes continue for Allen who has now lost three straight games, allowing a total of 10 goals. With the Blues on a back-to-back tomorrow night in Washington, Carter Hutton should be back in goal. Allen's record drops to 18-13-2 with a 2.64 goals against average and a .911 save percentage.
Jan 6 - 4:02 PM

Jake Allen will start Saturday afternoon's game against Philadelphia.

Allen has watched backup Carter Hutton win the team's last three games and he'll get back into the crease against the Flyers. Allen has gone 18-12-2 this season with a 2.57 GAA and a .913 save percentage.
