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.
