Canadiens' Jake Allen: Targeted for 30 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canadiens goalie coach Stephane Waite projects Allen to play 30 games if the NHL has a regular 82-game schedule, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.

With an 82-game schedule looking unlikely, the Habs expect Allen to start somewhere between 35 and 40 percent of the games. The goal is to give the 33-year-old Carey Price plenty of rest, "His body is slower to recover between games," Waite said. "Carey wants to play every game, but he's going to appreciate playing a little less for quality starts. He won't have to cut corners to save his body." The benefits of a well-rested Price, who played a league-high 58 games during the regular season before it was suspended, was on display in the playoffs.

Canadiens' Jake Allen: Signs two-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen penned a two-year, $5.75 million contract extension with Montreal on Wednesday.

Allen will make $4.35 million this season before seeing his AAV drop once his extension kicks in. The 30-year-old backstop will serve as the No. 2 option behind Carey Price but could log upwards of 30 games in 2020-21 if the league does move forward with a condensed schedule.

Canadiens' Jake Allen: Acquired via trade
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blues traded Allen and a 2022 seventh-round pick to the Canadiens on Wednesday in exchange for 2020 third- and seventh-round picks.

Allen should take over as the No. 2 option in goal behind Carey Price for at least the 2020-21 campaign, after which Allen will become an unrestricted free agent. With more and more teams trying to cut down on the workloads for their starting netminders, Allen could see action in upwards of 20-to-25 games next season, though it would almost certainly take an injury for him to supplant Price atop the depth chart.

Blues' Jake Allen: Allows one goal in relief outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen allowed a goal on six shots in relief of Jordan Binnington during Friday's 6-2 loss to the Canucks in Game 6.

Binnington would ultimately take the loss Friday after allowing the Canucks to build a 4-0 lead. Allen didn't let it get any worse, but his teammates failed to stage a comeback. Both goalies have one year remaining on their contracts before reaching unrestricted free agency. As such, Allen will likely be competing with Binnington for the starting job in training camp ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

Blues' Jake Allen: Not starting Game 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen will be the backup to Jordan Binnington in Friday's Game 6 against the Canucks, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

Allen had started three straight games versus the Canucks, but after he allowed four goals on 30 shots in Game 5, head coach Craig Berube decided to give Binnington the nod for Game 6. Should Binnington falter, Allen could make a relief appearance in goal.

Blues' Jake Allen: Falters in Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen yielded four goals on 30 shots in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Canucks in Game 5.

Allen had a 3-1 lead to work with in the second period, but three unanswered goals from the Canucks stuck him with the loss. The 30-year-old had allowed four goals combined in his previous three outings. With the Blues' season hanging in the balance in Friday's Game 6, it's unknown if head coach Craig Berube will stick with Allen or turn back to Jordan Binnington.

Blues' Jake Allen: Making third straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen led the Blues onto the ice and will start Game 5 versus the Canucks on Wednesday, Thomas Drance of The Athletic Vancouver reports.

Allen has been admirable in the last two games, allowing just three goals on a combined 64 shots. He won both appearances, which has helped the Blues tie the series at 2. Allen will look to keep the momentum going Wednesday in a pivotal Game 5.

Blues' Jake Allen: Earns win, evens series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen stopped 22 of 23 shots in Monday's 3-1 win over the Canucks in Game 4.

Allen was trusted with back-to-back starts, and he once again delivered the goods with his second straight win. Allen has allowed just three goals on 64 shots in those two appearances. The 30-year-old's strong play of late may have given him the edge over Jordan Binnington. A pivotal Game 5 awaits on Wednesday, and it seems likely Allen will get the nod for that contest.

Blues' Jake Allen: Gets back-to-back starts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen will be stationed between the pipes for Monday's Game 4 tilt with Vancouver, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

Allen was dominant in Sunday's Game 3 victory, stopping 39-of-41 shots to avoid falling in a 3-0 series hole. If he posts another strong outing to tie the series at 2-2, he may take the regular role from Jordan Binnington.

Blues' Jake Allen: Backstops Game 3 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen made 39 saves on 41 shots in Sunday's 3-2 overtime win over the Canucks in Game 3.

Allen got the nod over Jordan Binnington, who struggled for the first two games of the series. It worked out for the Blues, as Allen was able to help them earn the win in overtime to cut the Canucks' series lead to 2-1. Head coach Craig Berube will have an interesting choice to make regarding his goalie for Monday's Game 4.

Blues' Jake Allen: Guarding cage Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen will patrol the blue paint for Sunday's Game 3 against the Canucks, Thomas Drance of The Athletic Vancouver reports.

Allen appeared in one round-robin contest, stopping 37-of-38 shots in a tough-luck overtime loss. With a back-to-back scheduled for Sunday and Monday, Jordan Binnington should be expected back in the starting lineup for the second leg.

Blues' Jake Allen: Can't hang on against Stars
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen yielded one goal on 38 shots in Sunday's 2-1 round-robin shootout loss to the Stars.

Allen came within a minute of a shutout before Joe Pavelski scored while the Stars had an extra attacker. In the shootout, Allen allowed the lone tally to Denis Gurianov to take the loss in his lone round-robin appearance. The Blues will be the fourth seed in the Western Conference, and they'll face the Vancouver Canucks. It's expected Jordan Binnington will handle virtually all of the Blues' goaltending duties during the playoffs.

Blues' Jake Allen: Starting Sunday against Stars
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen will guard the cage during Sunday's round-robin finale against Dallas, Alex Ferrario of 101 ESPN reports.

Allen was pretty solid during the regular season, posting a 13-7-3 record while registering a 2.56 GAA and .912 save percentage in 50 appearances. Sunday's contest could represent his only start of this postseason, as Jordan Binnington looked fantastic during St. Louis' round-robin opener against the Avalanche on Sunday and, barring an injury, will almost certainly be the only goaltender the Blues turn to after round-robin play wraps up.

Blues' Jake Allen: Defeats Ducks on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen allowed one goal on 27 shots in a 4-2 win over the Ducks on Wednesday.

The game was rescheduled from Feb. 11, when Blues defenseman Jay Bouwmeester suffered a cardiac episode. Allen did a solid job in the contest, posting his fourth straight win. The 29-year-old goalie improved to 12-6-3 with a 2.15 GAA and a .927 save percentage in 24 appearances. He continues to do well in a limited role behind regular starter Jordan Binnington.

Blues' Jake Allen: In line to face Ducks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen is slated to take on the Ducks in Anaheim on Wednesday, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.

Allen posted a stellar shutout effort against the Blackhawks in his last outing Sunday, opening the door for a return to the crease following the back end of a back-to-back set Monday. He'll indeed get that opportunity in Anaheim and could carve out a slightly larger role down the stretch if he continues to perform well when given the opportunity. Even if that's the case, Jordan Binnington has played well enough to get plenty of looks in net as well.

Blues' Jake Allen: Perfect versus Blackhawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen stopped all 29 shots during Sunday's 2-0 win in Chicago, giving the Blues' netminder his second shutout of the season.

Since losing three straight, Allen has reeled off three straight victories and is 11-6-3 with a 2.20 GAA and .925 save percentage across 23 appearances this season. Playing behind Jordan Binnington, Allen is unlikely to see many opportunities down the stretch.

Blues' Jake Allen: In goal Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen will be stationed between the pipes for Sunday's contest in Chicago, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Allen has won each of his last two starts, allowing four goals on a combined 50 shots. The 29-year-old netminder is currently sporting career bests in GAA (2.31) and save percentage (.922). In his only start against the Blackhawks this season, Allen dominated in a Dec. 2 win, stopping all 38 shots he faced.

Blues' Jake Allen: Outlasts Stars in shootout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen allowed three goals on 31 shots during Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over the Stars.

The Blues' netminder, for the first time since December, has won back-to-back starts with both wins coming against the Stars. While his play has improved noticeably, Allen's fantasy value is minimal because of how dominant Jordan Binnington has been in 2019-20.

Blues' Jake Allen: Pegged for Saturday's tilt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen will occupy the home crease against Dallas on Saturday, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Jordan Binnington has made the last three starts, and now Allen will get a chance in a divisional clash. This will likely be the rotation as the season hits the home stretch, as Allen can be depended on -- he has a .923 save percentage and 2.29 GAA across 21 appearances. He also took down Dallas just over a week ago, steering away 18 of 19 shots in a 5-1 win.

Blues' Jake Allen: Picks up rare win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen allowed one goal on 19 shots in a 5-1 victory over the Stars on Friday.

He had only played four times over the last five weeks, but this was Allen's first win since Jan. 13, and just his second victory during the last two months. Although Allen has strong numbers this season, he hasn't made enough starts to have a major impact in fantasy circles. He is 9-6-3 with a 2.29 GAA and .923 save percentage in 21 games this season.
