Jake Allen will get the start in Sunday's game against the Vancouver Canucks.

Mar 1 - 2:37 PM

Jake Allen suffered a 5-2 defeat at the hands of the Canadiens Tuesday by allowing five goals on 23 shots.

Allen entered the contest having allowed just one goal in each of his prior three starts, but after this outing he sees his record fall to 17-6-2 while his GAA is 2.49 and his save percentage is .905. Look for Brian Elliott to get the nod in the Blues' next game.

Jake Allen will get the nod for Tuesday's game against Montreal.

Allen has only played against the Canadiens once so far and he surrendered four goals on 30 shots in that game. However, Allen has been hot lately, allowing just one goal in each of his last three contests. Blues coach Ken Hitchcock was in a lighthearted mood when talking about his decision. "Jake is a Montreal guy, isn't he?" Hitchcock asked. "I hope he is because he told me he was ... that's why (he's starting). I hope he didn't lie to me." Allen was born in Fredericton, New Brunswick. He did play in Montreal during his time in the QMJHL though.
Feb 23 - 3:29 PM

Jake Allen stopped 26 of 27 shots in Friday's 5-1 win over Boston.

Allen allowed a weak first period goal to Brad Marchand but he was perfect after that point. Allen has now won six consecutive decisions and he has allowed more than two goals just once in his last eight games played. The 24-year-old has a 17-5-2 record with a 2.39 goals-against-average and a .909 save percentage. As good as his record is, his fantasy upside is limited because of the presence of Brian Elliot.
Feb 20 - 10:55 PM

Jake Allen will get the start against the Boston Bruins on Friday night.

Through 26 games this season, the young netminder Allen has gone 16-5-2 with 56 goals against. Which isn't bad at all, but Allen's save percentage is a troubling .907. He'll face the Bruins for the first time, who have Malcolm Subban making his first career NHL start across the ice.
Feb 20 - 6:01 PM

Jake Allen cruised to an easy win over the Coyotes Tuesday as he stopped 25 of 26 shots in a 2-1 victory.

Allen has forced himself into the goaltending mix for the Blues with his play of late and has earned victories in five of his last six outings. Brian Elliott's presence will limit his ultimate upside, but even limited action in front of a solid St. Louis supporting cast should make him valuable.
Feb 10 - 11:47 PM

Jake Allen will be in goal for St. Louis against Arizona on Tuesday.

He has posted 15 wins in 24 appearances this season to go with a .904 save percentage and a 2.57 goals-against average. The Coyotes defeated Chicago in a shootout on Monday night.
Feb 10 - 10:19 AM

Jake Allen made 23 stops in a 3-0 shutout win over the lowly Buffalo Sabres on Thursday night while adding an assist on a late empty netter.

It's the 24-year-old's third shutout of the season which improves his record to 15-5-2 with a .906 save percentage and 2.49 goals against average. Allen has won four straight games and has allowed just five goals in that span.
Feb 5 - 10:44 PM

Jake Allen will get the nod for St. Louis on Thursday versus Buffalo.

He has won his last three starts, while allowing two goals or less in each match. Allen owns a 14-5-2 record to go with a 2.61 goals-against-average and a .902 save percentage.
Feb 5 - 2:22 PM

Jake Allen stopped 26 of 28 shots in Friday's 3-2 shootout win over Carolina.

Allen also stopped all three of Carolina's shooters in the shootout. This was Allen's first start in five games, but he is now on a personal three-game winning streak. The 24-year-old should be able to win a good chunk of his starts, but his fantasy upside is limited because he will probably split starts with Brian Elliot. Allen's record improves to 14-5-2 with a 2.61 goals-against-average and a .902 save percentage.
Jan 30 - 10:21 PM

Jake Allen will get the nod for St. Louis on Friday versus Carolina.

Brian Elliott started Thursday's 5-4 shootout win against Nashville and will get the night off. Allen made 19 saves on 20 shots when the Blues hosted the Hurricanes on Jan. 10.
Jan 30 - 11:16 AM

Jake Allen was barely tested on Tuesday night, as he allowed two goals on a paltry 15 shots in a 4-2 victory over the Oilers.

In his first start since late December, Allen took advantage of an easy matchup to reward his fantasy owners with a victory. His record improves to 13-5-2 with the win while his GAA is now 2.65 and his save percentage is .900. Brian Elliott remains the number one option in St. Louis.
Jan 14 - 12:10 AM

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.
Jan 13 - 11:13 AM

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.
