Goalie Jake Allen turned in a strong performance in the St. Louis Blues' 2-1 loss to the visiting Florida Panthers Monday night.
Allen stopped 31 of the 33 shots fired on him by the Panthers but never saw the long slapper Vincent Trocheck got on net through a maze of players with 4.6 seconds left in the regulation for the Florida winner. The tough-luck loss leaves Allen with a record of 22-16-3. His goals-against average is 2.69 and his save percentage is .902. Feb 20 - 11:10 PM

Date:

Jake Allen will probably play between the pipes on Monday.

Allen was the first goaltender off the ice following the morning skate, which is usually a good sign of who the starter will be. This would be his third straight start.
Feb 20 - 12:02 PM

Jake Allen got cut down by the Sabres on Saturday.

Allen stopped 25 of 28 shots during the 3-2 loss, though he did stop 11 of 12 on the kill. So it's not like he didn't do his part. The loss snapped his four-game winning streak, dropping his record to 22-15-3 with a 2.69 GAA and .902 save percentage.
Feb 18 - 4:15 PM

Jake Allen will face Buffalo on Saturday afternoon.

Allen has certainly begun to turn things around of late. He's 5-1 over his last six games and has won four straight. He has a shutout and 10 goals against in that span with a beastly .941 save percentage to boot.
Feb 18 - 11:57 AM

Jake Allen turned aside 18 of 21 shots in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Canucks.

It wasn't Allen's finest performance, but he still did enough to push his winning streak to four games. The Blues goalie has been able to turn his season around in the last couple of weeks and he seems to have rediscovered his confidence. He'll enter his next start with a 22-14-3 record, a 2.68 goals-against-average and a .903 save percentage. It's safe to have him in your fantasy lineup again.
Feb 17 - 12:06 AM

Jake Allen will likely play on Thursday.

Carter Hutton will start Wednesday against Detroit, so Allen will probably face Vancouver in the second game of the back-to-back set. Allen was named the second star of the week Monday after he posted a 3-0-0 record with a 1.00 goals-against average and a .967 save percentage.

Jake Allen gave up two goals on 30 shots Saturday night as the Blues beat the Canadiens 4-2.

This was Allen’s fourth win in the past five games. In that span, he recorded one shutout and an average save percentage of .958 on 119 shots against. He was slightly below his recent average with Saturday’s effort, netting a .933, but that is the fifth straight game in which he was .900 or better.
Feb 11 - 11:59 PM

Jake Allen will face Montreal on Saturday.

The young netminder has been quite a bit better over his last five starts. He's had three games with one goal against or less, while surrendering three and four goals against in the other two respectively. All in all though, he's 3-2 with a .937 save percentage and just nine goals against in that span.
Feb 11 - 1:20 PM

Jake Allen turned aside 31 of 32 shots in Thursday's 2-1 OT win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The only goal Allen gave up was to Morgan Rielly with four seconds remaining in the second period. After struggling mightily just a few weeks ago, Allen has really turned things around. He's won back-to-back games over the Senators and Maple Leafs and he's given up just one goal in the process. Allen has a 20-14-3 record with a 2.69 goals-against-average and a .903 save percentage.
Feb 9 - 11:43 PM

Jake Allen will keep his net on Thursday against Toronto.

Allen has already beaten the Maple Leafs once this season, stopping 26 of 27 shots in the effort. Unfortunately there isn't a meaningful difference between his performance against Western and Eastern foes. Through 17 games against teams from the East Allen has posted a 8-6-1 with a .900 save percentage and a 2.85 GAA.
Feb 9 - 4:13 PM

Jake Allen stopped all 30 shots he faced in Tuesday's 6-0 win over the Ottawa Senators.

Well this is an interesting turn of events. One of the main reasons the Blues fired head coach Ken Hitchcock last week was because the team's goaltending was really letting them down, but things have changed in a hurry. Last night, Carter Hutton blanked the Philadelphia Flyers and tonight, it was Allen's turn to keep the opposition off the scoreboard. Allen has looked a lot better of late, as he's won two of his last three games. He has a 19-14-3 record with a 2.74 goals-against-average and a .900 save percentage.
Feb 7 - 11:03 PM

Jake Allen will get the nod in Tuesday's game against the Ottawa Senators.

Carter Hutton pitched a shutout against the Flyers last night, but head coach Mike Yeo will still opt to go with Allen tonight. Allen has an 18-14-3 record with a 2.82 goals-against-average and a .897 save percentage.
Feb 7 - 6:33 PM

Despite giving up three goals on 30 shots Saturday night against the Penguins, new Blues' coach Mike Yeo liked what he saw from Jake Allen.

In fact, Yeo stated that Allen's play was "by far the biggest positive of the game." If you are an Allen owner that is good to hear as the first-year starter has been struggling as of late. It looks as if Yeo is willing to let Allen work out his issues. Hold off on dumping Allen for a little longer to see how this plays out.
Feb 5 - 1:01 PM

Jake Allen saved 27 of 30 shots in a 4-1 loss to the Penguins Saturday night.

Allen allowed three pucks to get past him by three different shooters. Sidney Crosby, Kris Letang, and Justin Schultz each managed to slip one past Allen—who faced the Penguins for the first time this season. A fourth goal went into an empty net. The clubs previously played each other on January 24 with the Blues shutting out the Pens with backup goaltender Carter Hutton minding the crease. This was only Allen’s sixth regulation loss at home.
