Jake Allen G STL 1 Day

Allen will be in the crease Friday against the Hurricanes, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The Blues will enter the second half with three games in a four-day stretch, so Allen will draw in for No. 1 goalie Brian Elliott for one of the contests. Fortunately for the young netminder, Friday's start against the Hurricanes, who rank third-worst in the league with 37 points on the season, is about as ideal of a matchup as it gets. Allen hasn't been nearly as sharp for the last two months as he was earlier in the season, but he's still an outstanding play against weaker opponents, given the tremendous all-around play of his mates.

The Oilers put just 15 shots on goal against Allen in Tuesday's game, and he turned away 13 of them in a 4-2 victory.

Not a very shiny save percentage for Allen in this one, but it was still good for his 13th win this season. The lowly Oilers don't offer much of a challenge, so it's not terribly surprising that Allen and the red-hot Blues -- winners of five straight -- were able to triumph. Brian Elliott will retake duties in net Thursday against the Wings.

Allen had spent five of six games since Dec. 27 in street clothes while Elliott and Martin Brodeur manned the net. But the kid is talented and looked great Saturday. He could soon start stealing time in the blue paint. Be ready.

Allen's teammate, Brian Elliott (knee), was activated from injured reserve Tuesday morning.

Allen owns an 11-5-2 record for the season, but he also has an .899 save percentage and 2.76 GAA. The Blues will likely give Elliott a decent chunk of the playing time, though it's still unclear exactly how things will be divided. St. Louis is currently carrying three goaltenders, with Martin Broder -- who notched a shutout Monday night -- also on the roster.

Allen gave up four goals on 24 shots in Saturday's loss to Dallas.

Not the best night for Allen, who has now lost three straight games, giving up a whopping 12 goals in that span. While he remains a top fantasy option with an 11-5-2 record, his .899 save percentage and 2.76 GAA is a tad alarming. While he will likely remain the starter with Brian Elliot (knee) out, expect Allen to lose a significant amount of starts once Elliot returns -- especially if the 24-year-old continues to struggle.

Another solid game for Allen, who has allowed three or fewer goals in each of his last five outings. The 24-year-old is now 11-3-2 on the season with a .907 save percentage and 2.49 GAA. He needs to be in your lineup every night he gets the call in the Blues' crease.
