Blues' Jake Allen: Seeking seventh straight win Thursday

Allen was named the starting home goalie for Thursday's game against the Lightning, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

Allen is rolling with six consecutive wins and a tidy 1.95 GAA over that span. He capped off a strong November with a performance that included saving 18-of-21 shots from the Stars, and while that wasn't necessarily a strong effort, no one will be denying how hot the Blues have been -- the Notes have churned out 25 goals to the tune of six wins over the last seven games. Allen will do his best to stave off a Lightning team averaging 2.92 goals per contest this season, the seventh-best rate in the league.
