Jake Allen: Still on fire


Has Jake Allen “arrived,” so to speak?

That still remains to be seen, but he’s clearly on a hot streak at the moment.

PHT went into greater depth on Sunday, and Allen didn’t allow that praise to jinx him tonight, as he’s now the owner of a two-game shutout streak. His St. Louis Blues blanked the New Jersey Devils 2-0 last night, with debuting Martin Havlat’s goal serving as the game-winner.

After stopping a whopping 45 shots for his last shutout, Allen had a lighter night, but the bottom line is that he’s on a roll. Beyond those two shutouts, Allen’s also on a three-game winning streak, allowing a single goal in that span.

He’s also 6-1-0 in his past seven appearances, notching three shutouts and allowing just five goals overall.

Again … he’s on quite the run.

Shutouts are pretty widespread in general tonight, by the way, with Reto Berra and Henrik Lundqvist also notching goose eggs so far.
