The St. Louis Blues just can’t seem to catch a break when it comes to the health of their goaltenders. They’ve lost both Brian Elliott and Jake Allen for long stretches this season and it might have happened again.
Jake Allen managed to complete the first period of Sunday’s game against Colorado, but he did come out for the start of the second period.
Allen already missed 17 games between Jan. 9 and Feb. 20 because of a knee injury.
It’s unclear when exactly Allen was injured, but it’s entirely possible that he tweaked something with about 3:20 left in the first period (top).
Anders Nilsson is now in goal for the Blues.
