Jake Allen wasn't satisfied with the St. Louis Blues' second round exit.
"We didn’t advance far enough — disappointed," Allen said. "We had an opportunity this year that not many people thought we’d even get to the playoffs or win a round. But I feel like we could have easily went to the next round. It’s frustrating that way." He's right when he said that not a lot of people thought the Blues would get as far as they did. They defied expectations and Allen was a big factor in that. He struggled in the first half of the season, but he turned things around and extended that into the postseason where he posted a 1.96 GAA and .935 save percentage in 11 starts. May 8 - 10:08 AM

Jake Allen stopped 15 of 17 shots in a 3-1 loss to Nashville in Game 6 Sunday night.

St. Louis has been eliminated from the 2017 playoffs as a result. Still, all things considered, it's impressive that the Blues made it to the second round given that there was a time when they were questionable to even make the playoffs. Allen's late season turnaround played a big role in St. Louis making the postseason and once there he continued to put forth great performances. Of St. Louis' 11 playoff games this year, Allen held the competition to two or fewer goals in eight of those contests.

Jake Allen is playing between the pipes in Game 6 Sunday afternoon.

This is just an FYI as it would have been shocking if Allen didn't get the start. After all, he has a 1.94 GAA and .937 save percentage in the 2017 playoffs.
May 7 - 3:18 PM

It will almost assuredly be Jake Allen between the pipes Sunday afternoon when the Blues face off against the Predators in Game 6 in Nashville.

The Blues need to win to prolong their season down 3-2 in the series and it is highly unlikely that St. Louis coach Mike Yeo will turn to anyone else than Allen in net to achieve that goal. Allen owns a 6-4 record with a 1.94 GAA and a .937 SP in the postseason thus far.
May 7 - 7:25 AM

Jake Allen turned aside 21 of 22 shots in Friday's 2-1 win over the Nashville Predators.

The Blues were facing elimination in this game, but the victory allows them to see another day. It's the second straight game that Allen has allowed two goals or less. He now owns a 6-4 record with a 1.94 goals-against-average and a .937 save percentage this postseason. The Blues will need him to be on his game when they try to stave off elimination again on Sunday afternoon in Nashville. St. Louis is down 3-2 in the best-of-seven series.
May 5 - 11:19 PM

Jake Allen will get the nod in Friday's game against the Nashville Predators.

The Blues are officially in must-win mode, as one more loss would knock them out of the playoffs. Allen has a 5-4 record with a 2.05 goals-against-average and a .936 save percentage this postseason.

May 5 - 7:31 PM

Jake Allen allowed two goals on 25 shots in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Nashville Predators.

Allen kept the Predators off the board through 40 minutes, as he was able to come up with a few big saves. Unfortunately for the Blues, the Preds were able to score twice in the third frame. Allen didn't have a chance on Nashville's first goal, but he'll definitely want a mulligan on James Neal's innocent-looking wrist shot that put the Blues in a 2-0 hole. Allen and his team now trail the best-of-seven series 3-1, with Game 5 being held in St. Louis on Friday night. One more loss and the Blues' season is over. Allen will go into that game with a 5-4 record, a 2.05 goals-against-average and a .936 save percentage this postseason.
May 3 - 1:10 AM

May 2 - 6:16 PM

Jake Allen stopped 31 of 34 shots in a 3-1 loss to Nashville in Game 3 on Sunday afternoon.

He kept the Blues close after two periods, but Roman Josi scored a big insurance goal late in the third frame when St. Louis got caught in their own zone on a very long shift. Allen faced 18 shots in the middle stanza and his teammates mustered just four shots on target on Nashville's net.
Apr 30 - 6:22 PM

Jake Allen should get the nod in Game 3 Sunday afternoon.

Allen led the Blues out for the pregame warmups, which all-but confirms that he's getting the start. Not that Allen's status for the game was ever in real doubt. After all, he has a 1.89 GAA and .941 save percentage in the 2017 playoffs.
Apr 30 - 2:55 PM

Although nothing is official, we would be shocked if Jake Allen wasn't in goal Sunday afternoon to face the Predators in Game 3.

These playoffs have been sort of a coming out party for Allen, who has been stellar. Allen boasts a 5-2 record with a 1.89 GAA and .941 SP in the post season thus far and is an early candidate for the Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoff MVP.
Apr 30 - 8:32 AM

Jake Allen stopped 22 of 24 shots in Friday's 3-2 win over the Nashville Predators.

The best-of-seven series is now all tied up at one. The Blues found themselves down 1-0 and 2-1 in this one, but they managed to jump ahead in the third period when they got goals by Jori Lehtera and Vladimir Tarasenko (his second of the game). Allen now owns a 5-2 record with a 1.89 goals-against-average and a .941 save percentage. It's the fifth time in seven games during the playoffs that he's allowed two goals or less in a game.
Apr 28 - 11:25 PM

Jake Allen will be between the pipes for Game 2 against the Nashville Predators on Friday night.

Allen allowed four goals on 32 shots in Wednesday's 4-3 loss in Game 1. He has a 4-2 record with a 1.87 goals-against-average and a .944 save percentage this postseason.

Jake Allen allowed four goals on 32 shots in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Nashville Predators.

In fairness to Allen, two of Nashville's four goals were scored on the power play. But he'll probably want Vernon Fiddler's game-winning goal back, as he made an awkward dive at the puck before Fiddler just poked it under Allen and into the net. Allen now owns a 4-2 record with a 1.87 goals-against-average and a .944 save percentage. Game 2 of the best-of-seven series will be played in St. Louis on Friday night.
Apr 26 - 11:23 PM

Jake Allen is expected to be in the crease for Game 1 versus Nashville on Wednesday night.

Allen had the second-best numbers among all goalies in Round 1 behind just Predators starter Pekka Rinne. He posted a 1.47 goals-against average and a .956 save percentage in Round 1 versus Minnesota. If that continues then this series should feature quite the goaltender battle.
