Jake Allen Makes Key Save On Second-Chance Opportunity Vs. Bruins (Video)

Jake Allen shut out the Boston Bruins on Tuesday night in the St. Louis Blues’ 2-0 win at TD Garden. But he had at least one close call at a key point in the game. Zdeno Chara ripped one on goal from the point, which created a juicy rebound for Brad Marchand. Marchand got off a backhanded one-timer, but Allen read the play beautifully and made the save.

Postgame Perspective: Flyers show fight, roll into break with clutch win

As Magnus Paajarvi slid a shot past Steve Mason on a breakaway to give the St. Louis Blues a 3-0 lead just shy of the midway point on Monday night's game, it appeared the Flyers recent run of momentum would come crashing to a screeching halt, just as they were about to enter a nearly week-long break. On that goal, Mason made a poor effort to stop what seemed to be a certain...

The Blues’ slump looks and sounds all too familiar

The St. Louis Blues looked awful at home against the lowly Toronto Maple Leafs. They also looked pretty bad on the road against the New York Islanders and at home against the Florida Panthers. The club has dropped three straight. While that type of slump is expected over the course of an 82-game season, it’s the manner in which the Blues are losing and what they’re saying after...

Brian Elliott calls Jake Allen the future of the franchise

Brian Elliott is once again in a tough position with the St. Louis Blues. Over the last several years, Elliott has repeatedly been pushed to the bench as the organization turns to different options in net. First was Jaroslav Halak. Next was Ryan Miller. Now it’s Jake Allen. Despite the fact Elliott is struggling to find time in the crease, he’s keeping a positive attitude and...

Blues can bounce back against a Sabres team they've dominated

At this point it wouldn't be surprising if the Buffalo Sabres believed the NHL's scheduling system was playing an elaborate prank on them. Sitting among the Eastern Conference's cellar dwellers, the Sabres haven't done much through the first four of a five-game stretch against the best in the West. Buffalo closes the slate Monday night at home with its second meeting in four days...

Video: Jake Allen’s controversial save of the year

The term “save of the year” is thrown around a lot, but Jake Allen’s robbery on Marko Dano may deserve the label. The puck may have actually been over the line, but like the Braden Holtby situation from the other night, it’s not a goal unless there’s conclusive evidence that the puck is actually over the line inside the glove. Allen’s big mitt even fooled the Blues announcers...

After a shaky start, Jake Allen has been outstanding in net

Jake Allen started the 2015-16 season with mixed results. His numbers weren’t awful, but he looked a bit shaky in net while allowing nine goals over his first three games. These initial outings were a bit worrisome as Allen seemed to be moving a bit too much in net, resulting in him being well out of position should the puck rebound or take a deflection. Those worries have been...

St. Louis Blues: Should the two goalie system be abandoned?
