Description: Blues goaltender Jaroslav Halak has left the team for a couple of days to recover from an illness that he's been dealing with since Dec. 21. SOURCE: St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Insight: The Blues recalled Jake Allen to back up Brian Elliott Thursday against the Kings. St. Louis coach Ken Hitchcock indicated Halak shouldn't be away from the team for long. "Tried to fight through it to be honest with you," Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said. "We just told Jaro it's best to stay at home right now for a day or two until you feel cleared up. It comes and goes. He feels good for a couple of hours and then he doesn't feel good. He's at 70 percent -- it's not good enough to play and it's not getting any better, so a couple of days away I think will really help him."
