Against the Calgary Flames on Friday night, Allen had this incredible save of the year candidate, and sure-fire SportsCenter Top Ten play. Allen was completely out of position and...
Friday night, Jake Allen was fresh off of his first NHL start and first NHL win, a 4-3 overtime victory against the Detroit Red Wings. Jaden Schwartz and Patrik Berglund had given him a 2-0 lead against the Calgary Flames to work with, but it very nearly became a 2-1 lead. "Very nearly," because this happened:
Poor T.J. Brodie. Here...
