Description: Blues goalie Jake Allen was awful in a spot start on Tuesday versus the Canadiens.
Insight: Allen allowed five goals on 23 shots, which is just a .783 save percentage. Prior to Tuesday, Allen had allowed just six goals in all of February. After a strong first half, Allen is just too unpredicatable for fantasy owners to trust.
2/5/2015 9:40:00 PM
Description: Blues goalie Jake Allen posted a shutout Tuesday versus Buffalo.
Insight: He faced 23 shots, and looked comfortable all night long. Allen is now 15-5-2 on the season, yet is still the backup in St. Louis.
1/30/2015 9:47:00 PM
Description: Blues goalie Jake Allen made 26 saves in the shootout victory over the Hurricanes on Friday.
Insight: Allen stopped 26-of-28 shots in regulation and overtime. He improved to 14-5-2 with the victory.
1/13/2015 10:29:00 PM
Description: Blues goalie Jake Allen picked up a much needed victory, but he still didn't play very well.
Insight: Allen hasn't had much playing time lately, but he earned the start Tuesday after he came on in relief for Brian Elliott on Saturday and led St. Louis to a comeback victory. Allen didn't allow a goal until the third period, but he only faced 15 shots in the game, so the save percentage was again below .900.
1/10/2015 10:54:00 PM
Description: Blues goalie Jake Allen relieved starter Brian Elliott and stopped 19-of-20 shots to lead St. Louis back over Carolina on Saturday.
Insight: The Blues won in a shootout, 5-4. Elliott left the game after allowing three goals in the first 13 minutes. Allen posted a .950 save percentage the rest of the game. Unfortunately, it seems unlikely many owners started Allen on Saturday since he didn't start and has been struggling. Perhaps this gets him going again.
Cold1/9/2015 10:28:00 AM
Description: Blues backup goalie Jake Allen has watched the last six games as Brian Elliott has gotten all the work for St. Louis.
Insight: Allen hasn't played since a second straight loss on Dec. 27 and doesn't figure to see much work as long as Elliott, the league-leader in GAA at 1.81, can stay healthy.
12/21/2014 10:43:00 AM
Description: Blues goalie Jake Allen took the loss in overtime Saturday versus San Jose.
Insight: He made 27 saves on 30 shots, and is now 11-3-2 with a 2.49 GAA and .907 save percentage. Allen should continue to hold down the top goaltending spot in St. Louis at least until Brian Elliott returns.
Hot12/16/2014 10:41:00 PM
Description: Blues goalie Jake Allen continued his hot streak with another victory on Tuesday.
Insight: Since getting pulled for Martin Brodeur on Dec. 6, Allen has won his last three starts. He stopped 21-of-23 shots against the Kings on Tuesday. Allen is 11-3-1 this season.
12/14/2014 10:35:00 AM
Description: Blues goalie Jake Allen had his best game of the month on Saturday.
Insight: Allen has struggled since Brian Elliott went down with an injury and Martin Brodeur joined the team, so it was nice for him to play well in a victory. Allen made 23 saves on 25 shots as the Blues won, 3-2, in overtime.
12/10/2014 3:38:00 PM
Description: Blues goalie Jake Allen will start on Thursday against the Islanders.
Insight: Martin Brodeur has won the past two games for the Blues, including the last matchup with the Islanders where Allen allowed three goals in the first period. Allen will be looking to rebound Wednesday.
12/6/2014 2:31:00 PM
Description: Blues goalie Jake Allen had another bad start and this time, the Blues replaced him with Martin Brodeur at the beginning of the second period.
Insight: Allen has allowed seven goals in four periods since the Blues signed Brodeur. The future Hall-of-Famer is worth adding in deep leagues although his value is only for the short-term at the moment.
12/3/2014 10:45:00 PM
Description: Blues goalie Jake Allen had a terrible third period, allowing three goals as St. Louis lost to Chicago, 4-1.
Insight: The game was tied 1-1 between the two Central Division rivals going into the third period. However, Allen and the Blues allowed three goals in the first six minutes, including two to Patrick Kane. Allen finished with 29 saves on 33 shots in the loss.
11/26/2014 9:34:00 AM
Description: Blues goalie Jake Allen had a bad game in relief of starter Brian Elliott.
Insight: Allen replaced Elliott, who suffered a lower-body injury, and allowed two third-period goals as the Senators cameback and won in a shootout, 3-2. Allen stopped just 15-of-17 shots. After posting back-to-back shutouts, Allen has a save percentage of .891 in his last five games. Despite his hot streaking officially ending, Allen is a must-own until fantasy owners know the seriousness of Elliott's injury.
Hot11/12/2014 3:23:00 PM
Description: Blues goalie Jake Allen wil start on Thursday against the Predators.
Insight: Allen is on some hot streak. He has won his last three starts and four of his last five, including two shutouts over that span. Allen has a .944 save percentage and 1.40 GAA.
11/6/2014 10:41:00 PM
Description: Blues goalie Jake Allen was less than five minutes from his third straight shutout when the game began to turn on him.
Insight: St. Louis led, 3-0, when Michael Ryder scored for New Jersey to make the lead, 3-1. David Backes scored, and the game appeared to be over with a three-goal lead and under three minutes to go. New Jersey scored two more times to make things interesting, but Allen won his fourth game of the season. He made 24 saves in the game.
11/4/2014 10:24:00 PM
Description: Blues goalie Jake Allen earned his second shutout of the season on Tuesday.
Insight: He beat New Jersey 1-0, stopping all 26 shots, and if Allen continues to play like this, he will give Brian Elliott a rest more often.
10/30/2014 10:33:00 PM
Description: Blues goalie Jake Allen pitched a shutout during his third start of the season, against the Ducks.
Insight: It was a nice outing for Allen, who stopped all 24 shots he faced, giving St. Louis reason to possibly give him the nod next time out.
10/18/2014 1:59:00 PM
Description: Blues goalie Jake Allen will get his first start of the season against Arizona on Saturday night.
Insight: This is just a start to keep Allen fresh. Goalie Brian Elliot is in no danger of losing his starting gig.
3/31/2013 5:30:00 PM
Description: The Blues sent Jake Allen to the minors on Saturday, leaving Jaroslav Halak and Brian Elliot as the two netminders on the team.
Insight: Allen was called up in March when Halak was struggling and went 5-0 with one shutout in his first five starts of the month. However, Halak has played better and Elliot is ready to return after being exiled for allowing 23 goals in his last 286 minutes (4.83 GAA).
Hot3/26/2013 6:12:00 PM
Description: Blues goaltender Jake Allen will start Tuesday's game against Edmonton.
Insight: This will be Allen's first appearance since March 19. He is 8-2-0 with a 2.26 GAA and .915 SV% this season but his starts will be limited with Jaroslav Halak still in the picture.
