It had to end some time.
The St. Louis Blues reeled off four straight shutouts, with three going to Brian Elliott and one via Jake Allen. Their franchise-record run ended tonight, however, as Mikhail Grigorenko scored on a nice series of passes by Tyson Barrie and Mikkel Boedker.
The NHL tweeted that the Blues’ franchise-record streak lasted 258:29. It’s also the first time they’ve allowed an even-strength goal in what feels like ages.
Don’t be too sad …
… Because the Blues aim to begin a new one.
(Hey, technically Jake Allen still has one going, right?)
