Jake Allen will get the nod for St. Louis on Tuesday night versus Edmonton.

He turned aside 19 of the 20 shots he faced in a 5-4 shootout win over Carolina after he replaced Brian Elliott on Jan. 10. This will mark Allen's first start since Dec. 27 when the Blues lost 4-3 to Dallas. Elliott will be back in goal on Thursday against Detroit.

Jake Allen looked more refereshed in practises this week after his timeout.

It is often hard for a rookie goalie to maintain his edge over a long season, especially when asked to carry the load prematurely due to injuries. That was the case with Allen. He was thrust into the starter's position when Brian Elliott injured his knee and his game started to decline thereafter. After taking a timeout over the last week, Allen looked much better in practice this week and reversed some bad habits he had been displaying. Look for Allen to get back in goal some time next week.
Jan 3 - 2:48 PM

With Martin Brodeur in net, and Brian Elliott back from injury, it's Jake Allen's turn to be a healthy scratch Friday night against Anaheim.

Through quirks in scheduling and circumstances of injury and general health, Allen has played 19 games for the Blues, four more than Elliott, and now 12 more than Brodeur. However he easily ranks last amongst them with a .899 save percentage and 2.76 GAA.

Jake Allen was roughed up for four goals on 24 shots in St. Louis’ 4-3 loss to the Stars on Saturday night.

We’d chalk this up to some rustiness following the three-day holiday break, but Allen was not sharp in the game prior, either. He has given up nine goals over his last two games, both losses. He has a 2.69 goals-against average and .903 save percentage this season. Martin Brodeur could be getting the start Monday against the Avalanche.

Jake Allen will get the start Saturday night when the Blues face off against the Stars.

It will be Allen's third consecutive start. Allen is coming off a disasterous 5-0 loss to Colorado in which he was pulled after allowing five goals on 31 shots. He will be looking to rebound against a struggling Dallas team and we like his chances.

Jake Allen had a night to forget against the Avalanche Tuesday as he allowed five goals on 31 shots in a 5-0 loss.

Allen allowed the five markers in just two periods of action, making his night that much worse. Martin Brodeur replaced Allen for the final frame of the game and was perfect as he blocked all 10 shots he faced in the period.

Even with Martin Brodeur around, Jake Allen has firmly entrenched himself as the top netminder. He has a 2.49 goals-against average and .907 save percentage this season.

Jake Allen will start in goal for the Blues when the face off against the Sharks Saturday night.

This was expected after Martin Brodeur allowed six goals against the Kings on Thursday, including one from about center ice. Allen is coming off a 5-2 win over the Kings and is a decent start against San Jose.

Jake Allen and the Blues came from behind to upend Los Angeles Tuesday by a score of 5-2.

Things got off to a rocky start for Allen as he gave up two first period goals and saw his team fall into a 2-0 hole, but his teammates bailed him out by scoring five consecutive markers. All told, Allen allowed two goals on 23 shots in the victory, which was his third in a row. The presence of Martin Brodeur might have given Allen owners a scare last week, but they don't have too much to worry about now.
