Allen stopped 29 of 30 shots in Thursday's 4-1 triumph over the Oilers

EDGE Analysis

Allen was beaten by Ryan Strome on the power play just 29 seconds after Vladimir Sobotka gave St. Louis a 1-0 first-period lead with a shorthanded goal, but he stood tall the rest of the way and got plenty of offensive support. This was a great bounce-back performance for Allen after he allowed 10 goals on 54 shots in his previous two appearances.

Allen will guard the goal in Thursday's road game against the Oilers.

EDGE Analysis

Allen has been dreadful in his last two outings, posting an atrocious 7.20 GAA and .815 save percentage in consecutive defeats to the Islanders and Flames. The 27-year-old netminder will look to bounce back Thursday in a road matchup with an Oilers club that just potted eight goals in a resounding victory over Vegas on Tuesday.

Allen saved just 30 of 36 shots during Monday's 7-4 loss to Calgary.

EDGE Analysis

After allowing four tallies and being pulled from his previous start against the Islanders, this was a disappointing follow up for Allen. Before this latest two-game setback, he sported a 9-3-1 record, .921 save percentage and 2.36 GAA, so the upside is clearly there. While the 27-year-old netminder may continue to have a few peaks and valleys over the course of the season, barring injury, another 30-win campaign with solid ratios is already written in stone.

Allen will defend the cage for Monday's clash with Calgary, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

EDGE Analysis

Allen will look to bounce back after getting the hook in his previous outing in which he allowed four goals on just 18 shots on net. The netminder had been performing well prior to Saturday's disaster, as he had posted a 4-1-0 record with a 1.81 GAA in his previous five outings and will no doubt be eager to regain his form versus the Flames.

Allen was pulled Saturday against the Islanders after he gave up four goals on 18 shots.

EDGE Analysis

Allen had been playing very well of late, but unfortunately he had no answer for the Islanders on Saturday night. The 27-year-old is the clear-cut starter for the Blues and should have no problem bouncing back. He didn't get much support from his defense and it was only his fourth regulation loss of the year. Get him back in your lineup next game.

Allen will patrol the crease in Saturday's home game against the Islanders, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Allen has been on fire recently, posting a 5-1-0 record while maintaining a fantastic 1.84 GAA and .933 save percentage over his last six outings. The 27-year-old goaltender will look to pick up a third consecutive victory Saturday in a home matchup with an Islanders team that's 3-6-0 on the road this season.

Allen made 21 saves in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Devils.

EDGE Analysis

Allen trailed for most of this one after allowing a goal just 3:35 in, but Vladimir Tarasenko finally got him off the hook by equalizing with 63 seconds left in the second period. That tying goal completely deflated New Jersey, as Allen's team cruised through the final frame with two unanswered tallies and a 19-4 edge in shots. The 27-year-old netminder has won five of his past six starts to improve to 9-3-1 on the young season.

Allen was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate, indicating that he will start in goal for Tuesday night's game in New Jersey, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Allen is slated to make his fifth consecutive start Tuesday and will look to continue his dominant performance -- prior to Saturday's four-goal hiccup, which still resulted in a win, the 27-year-old had allowed two goals or fewer in six of his previous seven starts. He'll look to stay focused against a Devils squad that is averaging 3.62 goals per game, good for fourth in the league.

Allen delivered 27 saves in a 6-4 win over the Maple Leafs on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

A win is a win, but those four goals were the most Allen had allowed since October 12. Still, his performance so far this season is his best ever since he hit the NHL. Allen is on his way up.

Allen will patrol the crease as Saturday's home starter versus the Maple Leafs, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

EDGE Analysis

Toronto is currently experiencing a dramatic tailspin, as Auston Matthews and Co. have lost four of the past five games with just 11 goals scored over that span. This bodes well for Allen, who hasn't yielded more than three goals in a contest since Oct. 12 against the Panthers.
