Allen made 21 saves on 23 tries in Tuesday's win over the Kings -- his third straight victory.
Allen has been distinctly unspectacular this season, significantly underperforming relative to the expectations he set with his spectacular efforts for AHL Chicago last season, but perhaps this little stretch of winning hockey will give him some more confidence to stop pucks at a more impressive rate going forward. Allen's on a one-way contract this year, so it's unclear what the Blues will do with him and Martin Brodeur once Brian Elliott (knee) is ready to return, which should be soon.

Allen stopped 23 of the 25 shots he faced in Saturday's overtime win over the Avalanche.
A solid outing for Allen, who has now picked up a win in his last two starts. The 24-year-old is 10-3-1 on the season with a .907 save percentage and 2.50 GAA. While his rate starts aren't great, Allen has proven he can win games for the Blues this season, making him a key fantasy asset. With Brian Elliot (knee sidelined), look for Allen to continue to split time with Martin Brodeur.

Allen will start in net Saturday against the Avalanche, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Allen allowed three goals on 25 shots Thursday against the Islanders, but still received the win with a big offensive effort out of his team. He and Martin Brodeur could continue to split the starts until Brian Elliott (knee) returns, leaving the Blues with a decision to make.

Allen gave up three goals on 25 shots, but got plenty of help from his teammates Thursday in a 6-3 win over the Isles.
It's another unspectacular start for Allen, but another win nonetheless -- his ninth in 13 starts this year despite so-so rate stats. Allen's finished with a save mark under .900 in eight of his last 10 starts, and yet has gone 6-2-1 in that span.

Allen will be back in the crease Thursday versus the Islanders, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Allen had one of the more difficult starts of his brief NHL career Saturday against the Islanders, yielding three goals on nine shots before he was pulled in favor of Martin Brodeur. However, coach Ken Hitchcock reiterated at Tuesday's practice that Allen is still the team's No. 1 goalie, so he'll reward the youngster with the chance to redeem himself in the rematch.

Allen was pulled after allowing three goals on just nine shots in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Islanders.
Martin Brodeur was unexpectedly thrust into action after the first period in relief of Allen, who has given up 12 goals in his four starts since Brian Elliott (knee) went down. Owners should be a bit worried at this point given Allen's struggles to embrace St. Louis' starting role combined with the signing of Brodeur, and although it's not yet official, don't be surprised if Broduer gets the nod Monday against Florida.

Allen will be between the pipes Saturday against the Islanders, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Allen gave way to new backup Martin Brodeur on Thursday night against the Predators, but only because it was the second game of a back-to-back set. Other than those scenarios, Allen is in line for a heavy slate of starts in place of the injured Brian Elliott, perhaps making him a top-10 fantasy goalie during that time. He owns an 8-3-1 record and 2.32 GAA over 12 outings.

Allen stopped 29 of the 33 shots he faced in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Blackhawks.
With starter Brian Elliott (knee) out of the lineup for a while, Allen was originally expected to get the majority of the starts in net for the time being. That could change now that the team has signed Martin Brodeur, who is expected to get his first start sometime this week.

Allen will start Wednesday's game against the Blackhawks, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
With starter Brian Elliott week-to-week with a knee injury, Allen should get the majority of the starts over the next month, although the team is expected to sign veteran netminder Martin Brodeur to play the role of experienced backup.
