Allen is coming off a 3-2 overtime loss to San Jose on Saturday, but before that he won three starts in a row. He owns an 11-3-1 record on the year to go with a .907 save percentage and a 2.49 goals-against average.

Jake Allen gave up three goals on 30 shots in the Blues’ 3-2 overtime loss to San Jose on Saturday night.

The overtime loss halts a mini three-game winning streak, though Allen has gotten the Blues at least a point in four straight games now. He was 21 seconds away from winning in regulation. 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.

Dec 16 - 12:09 PM

Jake Allen set aside 23 shots in the Blues’ 3-2 overtime win versus the Avalanche on Saturday night.

Allen gave up a goal in the first and second periods. The 24-year-old might eventually turn into a reliable number-one goalie, however he’s clearly not there just yet. He’s lucky he plays for one of the best teams in the NHL. Allen has a 2.50 goals-against average and .907 save percentage.

Jake Allen is getting the start between the pipes Saturday night.

With Martin Brodeur breathing over him, Allen has struggled lately. He’s given up three or more goals in his last three appearances. Allen has a 2.54 goals-against average and .907 save percentage.

The main reason given by Blues' coach Ken Hitchcock for starting Jake Allen over Martin Brodeur Saturday was Allen's work Thursday when St. Louis was shorthanded.

"(Allen) really gave us an opportunity when we were killing the penalty early in the game and when we were killing a penalty late in the game," Hitchcock said. "I think he did a heck of a job. We want to reward that." While that's all very well and good it is getting near impossible to read Hitchcock and his goalie preferences much to the frustration of Allen, Bordeur and Brian Elliott owners. To those of you in this situation, we feel your pain.
Dec 13 - 2:21 PM

Jake Allen is projected to get the nod on Saturday.

Allen turned aside 25 of 28 shots in Thursday's 6-3 victory against the Islanders. He's competing for ice time with Martin Brodeur while Brian Elliott is sidelined.
Dec 12 - 3:25 PM

Jake Allen allowed three goals on 28 shots in a 6-3 win over the Islanders on Thursday night.

Allen improves to 9-3-1 this season, reaping the benefits of a strong team in front of him due to his .907 save percentage and 2.54 goals against average. Allen has allowed under three goals just once in his past five appearances, but has three wins in that stretch. Allen will have to pick it up to assure himself more playing time than resilient veteran Martin Brodeur.
Dec 12 - 12:17 AM

Jake Allen will be between the pipes Thursday against the New York Islanders.

Martin Brodeur has won in each of his past two appearances, including Saturday's game versus the Isles when Allen was pulled. He'll get a shot at redemption on Thursday.
Dec 10 - 2:37 PM

Is there a goalie controversy already mounting in St. Louis? Jake Allen was pulled after the first period in favor of Martin Brodeur on Saturday.

The 24-year-old has allowed seven goals in four periods since the Blues signed Brodeur. New York Islanders fans chanted "We want Marty" and now they'll get him. Brodeur's probably worth a short-term add, even if his skills have declined over time.
Dec 6 - 2:20 PM

Jake Allen will in fact get the start Saturday afternoon against the Islanders.

Martin Brodeur looked very average in a 4-3 loss to Nashville Thursday night and it might take him a while to get into his best form. We expect Allen to get the majority of the starts until Brian Elliott returns from injury. Make sure you have Allen active for this early Saturday start.
