Jake Allen knows he has to be better and he took responsibility for not getting St. Louis into the playoffs.
"I definitely need to be more consistent as the starting goalie for the St. Louis Blues," Allen said. "There's no question in my mind I'm capable of it. I've shown it. It was a tough stretch, no question, for us all. But I started extremely well. I finished extremely well. I've just gotta find that middle consistency." Blues GM Doug Armstrong gave Allen a vote of confidence and he's confident 2018-19 will be better. Apr 12 - 11:02 AM

Jake Allen allowed three goals on 37 shots during Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Colorado Avalanche.

The Blues needed to pick up one point in the standings to qualify for the playoffs, but they failed to do so. There was a controversial moment in the second period of this game, as the Avalanche were awarded a goal that appeared to be offside. After review, the goal stood and the Avs were up 2-0 and the Blues never managed to overcome that deficit. It's a disappointing way to end the season for St. Louis. Allen will finish the year riding a personal five-game losing streak. He posted a 27-25-3 record with a 2.75 goals-against-average and a .906 save percentage this season.

Jake Allen is slated to start Saturday's game against Colorado.

Allen, who was listed as a scratch Friday night, was scheduled to fly out to Denver on Friday afternoon ahead of the team. "As far as Jake goes, I think this is a much-needed break for him," coach Mike Yeo said. "It's been an awful long time since he's had two days between a game. He's played an awful lot of hockey and so it gives him a chance to really collect some much-needed rest and get ready for tomorrow."
Apr 6 - 9:49 PM

Jake Allen will be scratched from Friday's game.

It's not clear if Allen is hurt or being given the game off to rest him. While every contest is vital for St. Louis at this point, the Blues have a bigger game against the Avalanche scheduled for Saturday. With that in mind, it is possible Allen being scratched is so that he's rested for Saturday's game, but we don't know that for sure.
Apr 6 - 3:36 PM

Jake Allen allowed four goals on 26 shots in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Blues were one point out of a playoff spot coming into tonight's action, so this was a game against a non-playoff opponent that they absolutely couldn't drop. To make matters even worse, St. Louis had a 3-1 lead in the second period, but they still couldn't close it out. 'Hawks defenseman Duncan Keith scored the game-winning goal with less than 10 seconds remaining in regulation. Allen has now dropped four games in a row. He owns a 27-24-3 record with a 2.74 goals-against-average and a .906 save percentage this season.
