Blues send Copley back to AHL, but Allen may not start Thursday

The St. Louis Blues have re-assigned goalie Pheonix Copley to the AHL.

Copley only made one start during his call-up, and it didn’t go so well. Saturday in Winnipeg, he allowed five goals on 29 shots in a 5-3 loss to the Jets.

That trip to Winnipeg didn’t have Jake Allen on it, and for a very unusual reason. Allen had been left in St. Louis to “reset” mentally after a string of poor performances.

Things went much better for the Blues last night in Pittsburgh, where Carter Hutton shut out the Penguins, 3-0.

It was originally planned that Allen would start Thursday in Minnesota. But not surprisingly, after the shutout win in Pittsburgh, head coach Ken Hitchcock said he might change the plan and stick with Hutton.
