Jake Allen has been returned to AHL Peoria after a successful stint with the St. Louis Blues. The 22-year-old goalie went 3-1-0 in four starts as Jaroslav Halak recovered from a groin injury.
Halak stopped 19 of 20 shots in a 1-0 overtime loss to Colorado last night in his first appearance since Feb. 1.
Brian Elliott, who’s struggled badly this season, will continue in the back-up role.
The Blues’ goalies have combined for the worst save percentage (.873) in the NHL.
Last season, it was the best (.929).
