May 6 9:28 AM PT10:28 AM MT11:28 AM CT12:28 PM ET16:28 GMT0:28 9:28 AM MST11:28 AM EST20:28 UAE12:28 ETNaN:� BRT - Allen made 21 saves in the Blues' 2-1 win over the Predators in Game 5 Friday night.
Analysis: Allen allowed just one goal in each of his first three playoff starts and finally returned to that form.
Apr. 23 8:09 AM PT9:09 AM MT10:09 AM CT11:09 AM ET15:09 GMT23:09 8:09 AM MST10:09 AM EST19:09 UAE11:09 ETNaN:� BRT - Allen made 34 saves Saturday as the Blues won 4-3 in overtime in Game 5 of their playoff series to eliminate the Wild in the first round.
Analysis: He started all five games and posted a 1.47 GAA while stopping 174 of 182 shots.
Apr. 20 7:52 AM PT8:52 AM MT9:52 AM CT10:52 AM ET14:52 GMT22:52 7:52 AM MST9:52 AM EST18:52 UAE10:52 ETNaN:� BRT - Allen made 26 saves in the Blues' 2-0 loss to the Wild on Wednesday.
Analysis: He entered having stopping 114 of the Wild's first 117 shots in the series, so expect him to bounce back in Game 5.
Apr. 17 11:24 AM PT12:24 PM MT1:24 PM CT2:24 PM ET18:24 GMT2:24 11:24 AM MST1:24 PM EST22:24 UAE14:24 ETNaN:� BRT - Allen made 40 saves in the Blues' 3-1 win over the Wild on Sunday.
Analysis: Allen is taking the term "hot goalie" to a new level. He's stopped 114 of 117 shots he's seen in three games and has the underdog Blues on the verge of a sweep.
Apr. 15 10:09 AM PT11:09 AM MT12:09 PM CT1:09 PM ET17:09 GMT1:09 10:09 AM MST12:09 PM EST21:09 UAE13:09 ETNaN:� BRT - Allen stopped 23 of 24 shots to help the Blues win Game 2 of their opening-round playoff series with Minnesota.
Analysis: Allen has been the biggest reason why the Blues are heading home with a commanding 2-0 series lead, as he's turned away 74 of 76 chances through the first two games. Clearly at the top of his game right now, the 26-year-old makes for a solid choice in fantasy playoff pools.
Apr. 13 5:21 AM PT6:21 AM MT7:21 AM CT8:21 AM ET12:21 GMT20:21 5:21 AM MST7:21 AM EST16:21 UAE8:21 ETNaN:� BRT - Allen made a career-high 51 saves and the Blues stole Game 1 of their first-round playoff series from the Wild with a 2-1 overtime victory Wednesday night.
Analysis: Allen, the catalyst for the midseason turnaround by the Blues after Mike Yeo took over as coach, sure didn't lose his touch. Diving, reaching and sliding for pucks from start to finish, the 26-year-old was oh, so close to his first career postseason shutout.
Apr. 10 7:30 AM PT8:30 AM MT9:30 AM CT10:30 AM ET14:30 GMT22:30 7:30 AM MST9:30 AM EST18:30 UAE10:30 ETNaN:� BRT - Allen made 32 saves in a 3-2 win over the Avs on Sunday.

Analysis: Allen continues to shine in March, going 8-1-1 with a 1.39 GAA and a .951 save percentage. Two of those wins have come against the Coyotes, including a shutout in Arizona on March 18, and the Blues play there again on Wednesday. Allen is 7-0 with a 1.00 GAA lifetime against the Coyotes.
Mar. 24 8:03 AM PT9:03 AM MT10:03 AM CT11:03 AM ET15:03 GMT23:03 8:03 AM MST10:03 AM EST19:03 UAE11:03 ETNaN:� BRT - Allen made 27 saves on Thursday for his seventh win in eight starts while allowing just nine goals in the stretch.

Mar. 14 8:54 AM PT9:54 AM MT10:54 AM CT11:54 AM ET15:54 GMT23:54 8:54 AM MST10:54 AM EST19:54 UAE11:54 ETNaN:� BRT - Allen made 38 saves - one off a season high - in Monday's 3-1 win in Los Angeles.
Analysis: Allen, left behind on a road trip earlier this season due to poor play, has allowed five goals in his four starts during the Blues' current five-game win streak. Maybe assistant GM Martin Brodeur is having a positive effect. Brodeur said after the team's morning skate Monday that Allen was ready to deliver, according to coach Mike Yeo, who added that the former Devils star goalie is always right in his assessments.
Mar. 8 8:29 AM PT9:29 AM MT10:29 AM CT11:29 AM ET16:29 GMT0:29 9:29 AM MST11:29 AM EST20:29 UAE11:29 ETNaN:� BRT - Allen had 32 saves and was 10.5 seconds away from his second shutout in as many games in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Wild.

Mar. 6 8:07 AM PT9:07 AM MT10:07 AM CT11:07 AM ET16:07 GMT0:07 9:07 AM MST11:07 AM EST20:07 UAE11:07 ETNaN:� BRT - Allen had 27 saves as the St. Louis Blues picked up two valuable points with a 3-0 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday night.

Feb. 20 6:56 PM PT7:56 PM MT8:56 PM CT9:56 PM ET2:56 GMT10:56 7:56 PM MST9:56 PM EST6:56 UAE (+1)21:56 ETNaN:� BRT - Allen had another strong game with 31 saves Monday against Florida, but allowed a goal with 4.6 seconds left in the 2-1 loss.

Feb. 17 7:38 AM PT8:38 AM MT9:38 AM CT10:38 AM ET15:38 GMT23:38 8:38 AM MST10:38 AM EST19:38 UAE10:38 ETNaN:� BRT - Allen had 18 saves on 21 shots to lift the streaking Blues to a 4-3 win over the Canucks on Thursday night.
Analysis: Allen has a 1.50 GAA in winning his last four starts. The Blues are at Buffalo on Saturday afternoon, and Allen stopped 23 shots in a 4-1 win over the Sabres on Nov. 15. He has a 0.98 GAA in winning four career starts in the series.
Feb. 11 5:59 PM PT6:59 PM MT7:59 PM CT8:59 PM ET1:59 GMT9:59 6:59 PM MST8:59 PM EST5:59 UAE (+1)20:59 ETNaN:� BRT - Allen continued his resurgence with 28 saves Saturday in a 4-2 win at Montreal.

Analysis: Allen's inconsistent play has been a contributing factor to the Blues' spiral down the standings. Now 2-8-0 with a troublesome 3.74 goals-against average and .863 save percentage over his last 10 starts, he isn't a desirable fantasy play at the moment.
Feb. 3 5:41 AM PT6:41 AM MT7:41 AM CT8:41 AM ET13:41 GMT21:41 6:41 AM MST8:41 AM EST17:41 UAE8:41 ETNaN:� BRT - Allen made 26 saves in a 5-1 win over the Leafs on Sunday.

Analysis: Allen has allowed 10 goals on 36 shots in his past three starts and was pulled from all of them. His time in the Blues' net could be up, especially with the team calling up goalie Pheonix Copley from the AHL on Friday. "I don't know how far it sets him back," Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said of Allen on Thursday. "... There's a lot going on right now. He's kind of locked up mentally, and he's going to have to fight through this.
Jan. 13 9:35 AM PT10:35 AM MT11:35 AM CT12:35 PM ET17:35 GMT1:35 10:35 AM MST12:35 PM EST21:35 UAE12:35 ETNaN:� BRT - Allen was pulled for the second straight start Tuesday, this time in the second period after allowing three goals on 15 shots.
Analysis: Backup Carter Hutton wasn't much better, and Allen remains the No. 1 goalie despite having a 3.77 GAA in his last 10 games. ''This is really on the athlete,'' Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said. ''... He's in a position where he's the guy that has to really take charge here. He's got to man up and get better, and we've got to get better in front of him."
Jan. 6 5:06 PM PT6:06 PM MT7:06 PM CT8:06 PM ET1:06 GMT9:06 6:06 PM MST8:06 PM EST5:06 UAE (+1)20:06 ETNaN:� BRT - Allen returned to the Blues on Saturday after leaving the team to be with his wife for the birth of their child.
Analysis: Allen, though, will not start as Carter Hutton gets the nod in net.
Dec. 31 7:52 AM PT8:52 AM MT9:52 AM CT10:52 AM ET15:52 GMT23:52 8:52 AM MST10:52 AM EST19:52 UAE10:52 ETNaN:� BRT - Allen allowed three goals on 14 shots before giving way to Carter Hutton to start the third as the Blues lost to the Predators 4-0 on Friday.
Analysis: Allen has been really inconsistent in his eight starts over the last three weeks. He's gone 3-1-0 with a 1.74 GAA in half of those games and 0-4-0 with a 4.92 GAA in the other four. Next up, the Blackhawks in Monday's Winter Classic. Chicago was one of the teams that frustrated Allen recently, scoring five goals on him on 35 shots in St. Louis on Dec. 17.
Dec. 21 9:33 AM PT10:33 AM MT11:33 AM CT12:33 PM ET17:33 GMT1:33 10:33 AM MST12:33 PM EST21:33 UAE12:33 ETNaN:� BRT - Jaden Schwartz scored in the first period for the Blues and Allen had 36 saves.
Analysis: Allen bounced back nicely after giving up 12 goals over his previous three contests.
Dec. 18 9:02 AM PT10:02 AM MT11:02 AM CT12:02 PM ET17:02 GMT1:02 10:02 AM MST12:02 PM EST21:02 UAE12:02 ETNaN:� BRT - Allen stopped 30 of 35 shots for the Blues in Saturday's 6-4 loss to Chicago.
Analysis: Allen has now allowed five goals twice in the last three games. The Blues host the Oilers on Monday, and Allen stopped 20 of 22 shots in a 3-1 loss in Edmonton on Oct. 20.
Dec. 8 6:09 PM PT7:09 PM MT8:09 PM CT9:09 PM ET2:09 GMT10:09 7:09 PM MST9:09 PM EST6:09 UAE (+1)21:09 ETNaN:� BRT - Allen had his eight-game win streak snapped Thursday in Brooklyn, allowing three goals on 27 shots in a 3-2 loss to the Islanders.
Analysis: Allen, who hadn't lost since Nov. 12, is 8-1-0 with a 2.29 GAA in his last nine starts, but has an ugly .889 save percentage in his past five. He could be rested Friday when the Blues visit New Jersey.
Dec. 7 12:26 PM PT1:26 PM MT2:26 PM CT3:26 PM ET20:26 GMT4:26 1:26 PM MST3:26 PM EST0:26 UAE (+1)15:26 ETNaN:� BRT - Allen won his eighth straight start Tuesday, making 28 saves in a 3-2 overtime victory over the Canadiens.
Analysis: Allen has a 2.20 goals-against average and a .923 save percentage during his personal win streak. On Tuesday, he improved to 10-0-2 at home with a 1.79 GAA, but St. Louis is headed out on a four-game road trip.
Nov. 26 8:18 PM PT9:18 PM MT10:18 PM CT11:18 PM ET4:18 GMT12:18 9:18 PM MST11:18 PM EST8:18 UAE23:18 ETNaN:� BRT - Allen won his fifth straight starts after coming up with 28 saves in the Blues' 4-3 shootout victory over Minnesota on Saturday.
Analysis: Allen wasn't quite as sharp in this one, but he's generally been outstanding during his unbeaten run. He's posted a 1.77 goals-against average and a .943 save percentage over the course of the streak.
Nov. 23 10:04 AM PT11:04 AM MT12:04 PM CT1:04 PM ET18:04 GMT2:04 11:04 AM MST1:04 PM EST22:04 UAE13:04 ETNaN:� BRT - Allen stepped up with 39 saves in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Bruins.

Analysis: Allen has yielded only four goals during the streak, which has come entirely on home ice. He's 6-0-2 with a sparkling 1.24 goals-against average at Scottrade Center, but owns a 3.85 GAA on the road.
Nov. 16 12:42 PM PT1:42 PM MT2:42 PM CT3:42 PM ET20:42 GMT4:42 1:42 PM MST3:42 PM EST0:42 UAE (+1)15:42 ETNaN:� BRT - Allen rebounded from a poor previous start to register 23 saves in Tuesday's 4-1 win over Buffalo.
Analysis: Allen was back to his usual solid self after being pulled early in the second period of Saturday's loss at Columbus, in which he allowed four goals on 12 shots. He's still yielded two goals or less in three of his last four starts and owns a 2.49 GAA for the season.
Nov. 13 8:41 AM PT9:41 AM MT10:41 AM CT11:41 AM ET16:41 GMT0:41 9:41 AM MST11:41 AM EST20:41 UAE11:41 ETNaN:� BRT - Allen was pulled early in the second period of Saturday's loss at Columbus after permitting four goals on only 12 shots.
Analysis: Allen started the season strong but has been somewhat shaky of late, recording a 4.05 goals-against average and a poor .856 save percentage while losing four of his last five starts. He's a hit-or-miss player for fantasy purposes.
Nov. 10 9:24 AM PT10:24 AM MT11:24 AM CT12:24 PM ET17:24 GMT1:24 10:24 AM MST12:24 PM EST21:24 UAE12:24 ETNaN:� BRT - Allen made 28 saves in Wednesday's 2-1 overtime loss to Chicago.

Analysis: Having permitted two goals or fewer in six of his seven starts, Allen is making a case to be included in the upper echelon of goaltenders. He's produced an outstanding 1.83 goals-against average and .923 save percentage thus far.
Oct. 21 8:54 AM PT9:54 AM MT10:54 AM CT11:54 AM ET15:54 GMT23:54 8:54 AM MST10:54 AM EST19:54 UAE11:54 ETNaN:� BRT - Allen stopped 20 of 22 shots in Thursday's 3-1 loss to Edmonton.
Analysis: Allen has yielded two goals in all four of his starts this season, losing the last two, but has faced an average of just 22 shots.
Oct. 14 8:50 AM PT9:50 AM MT10:50 AM CT11:50 AM ET15:50 GMT23:50 8:50 AM MST10:50 AM EST19:50 UAE11:50 ET12:50 BRT - Allen came up with 19 saves in the Blues' 3-2 victory at Minnesota on Thursday.
Analysis: Allen hasn't been tested much in the early going, facing just 40 shots in St. Louis' two wins to begin the season. He's stopped 36 of them. As the clear-cut No. 1 goaltender following the offseason trade of Brian Elliott, the 26-year-old has a very good chance of surpassing his career high of 26 wins on a good Blues team.
Oct. 9 7:41 PM PT8:41 PM MT9:41 PM CT10:41 PM ET2:41 GMT10:41 7:41 PM MST9:41 PM EST6:41 UAE (+1)22:41 ET23:41 BRT - Allen started Wednesday's season opener at Chicago and faced just 19 shots in the 5-2 victory.
Analysis: Allen, St. Louis' clear-cut No. 1 goaltender following the team's offseason trade of Brian Elliott, had been a question mark for the opener after leaving Saturday's preseason game with the Blackhawks after one period with a lower-body injury.
July 1 1:48 PM PT2:48 PM MT3:48 PM CT4:48 PM ET20:48 GMT4:48 1:48 PM MST3:48 PM EST0:48 UAE (+1)16:48 ET17:48 BRT - The Blues signed Allen to a four-year, $17.4 million extension Friday that begins with the 2017-18 season.
