Jake Allen getting the nod in Game 2 for Blues
St. Louis Blues goalie Jake Allen has been named Friday's starter against the Minnesota Wild.
Allen carried a shutout late into the third period on Wednesday as he stopped 51 of 52 shots in the Blues' 2-1 overtime victory over Minnesota. He'll need to be nearly perfect again tonight on the road versus an offense that finished second in the NHL in scoring this season (3.21 goals per game)
numberFire's models project Allen as the worst goalie option available on the four-game slate with 2.7 goals allowed, 27.8 saves and a 35.0 percent chance of earning a win.
