Allen allowed three goals on 31 shots in a 5-2 loss to Buffalo on Tuesday. The Sabres scored a pair of empty-net goals in the final minute of the third period.
Allen suffered his first regulation loss away from home in this one and is now 5-2-2 in 10 appearances in 2019-20. He's been a reliable option in fantasy this season, as Tuesday's loss was the first time Allen had allowed more than two goals against since Nov. 15.
Allen will be in goal for Tuesday night's contest in Buffalo, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Allen is 5-0-2 in seven road starts this season and will be looking for a sixth victory away from home when the Blues battle the Sabres in Buffalo. He's yet to win a game at home in 2019-20, but Allen has been nothing shy of sensational in road contests.
Allen relieved starter Jordan Binnington in the first period of Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Maple Leafs. He allowed one goal on 16 shots.
Allen is a much better backup than starter. This was the first time he'd ever had to relieve Binnington. But St. Louis is among the league's best, so Allen has value as a spot starter.
Allen posted a 38-save shutout in Monday's 4-0 win over the Blackhawks.
Allen's clean performance ended Patrick Kane's 15-game point streak, which shows just how locked in 29-year-old goalie was in the contest. The shutout was his first of the year and the 20th of his career. He hadn't maintained a shutout since Mar. 7, in a 4-0 win over the Kings. Allen improved to 5-1-2 with a 2.35 GAA and a .926 save percentage in eight games. He's not likely to wrangle the starting job away from Jordan Binnington, but Allen is becoming a very capable backup netminder.
Allen will start Monday's game in Chicago, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.
Allen will provide a breather for Jordan Binnington against a banged-up Blackhawks team that will dress only 11 forwards and six defensemen due to a combination of injuries and a lack of salary cap space. The backup goalie is 4-1-2 this season, and he's coming off his best performance of the campaign, in which Allen stopped 31 of 32 shots to beat Dallas last Friday.
Allen turned aside 31 of 32 shots in Friday's 3-1 win over the Stars.
Allen and Ben Bishop were locked in a goaltending battle for a large portion of the game, but the Blues struck twice in the third period to take the win.

He's still going to see limited starting opportunities behind Jordan Binnington, but Allen is becoming a fairly solid backup behind a strong team.
Allen will start Friday's game in Dallas, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Allen will give Jordan Binnington a rare breather in this battle of Central Division rivals. St Louis' backup is 3-1-2 this season, though his 2.95 GAA and .904 save percentage leave a lot to be desired.
Allen made a season-high 37 saves in Monday's 3-2 shootout loss to Nashville.
The Predators built a 2-0 lead midway through the first period, but Allen kept the game close long enough for the Blues to rally and send it into overtime, and then the shootout.

Allen was the first goalie off during morning skate, implying he'll start Monday's road game against the Predators, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Allen will take the crease, allowing Jordan Binnington some rest after starting the last four games. Following a rocky start to the season, Allen has turned things around lately, sporting a 2-0-1 record and .917 save percentage in November. The 29-year-old netminder should have his hands full in this outing, as the Predators rank third with 34.3 shots per game and 3.55 goals per contest.
Allen turned aside 36 shots in Friday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.
The Blues' No. 2 netminder got the nod to kick off a weekend back-to-back and had a much busier night than Joonas Korpisalo at the other end of the ice. While Allen made some tough stops to get St. Louis a point, he had little chance on Zach Werenski's power-play winner. Allen is now 3-1-1 with a 3.19 GAA and .893 save percentage in 2019-20.
Per Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Allen was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate, indicating he'll get the start in goal in Friday's road matchup with Columbus.
Allen was sharp in his last start Nov. 6 against Edmonton, stopping 32 of 34 shots en route to a 5-2 victory. The 29-year-old netminder will attempt to pick up a third straight win in a road matchup with a Columbus club that's 3-5-1 at home this year.
Allen made 32 saves on 34 shots in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Oilers.
This was Allen's best game in four starts this season, as it was the first time he's given up less than three goals. Playing behind a strong Blues team has Allen at 3-1-0 in his appearances, but he's allowed 13 goals on 110 shots overall. He'll continue to see minimal time in the crease, with Jordan Binnington likely back in goal for Saturday's game in Calgary.
Allen will be between the pipes on the road against Edmonton on Wednesday, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Allen has seen minimal usage this season, appearing in just three games in which he posted a 2-1-0 record and 3.73 GAA. The 29-year-old ceded the netminding duties to youngster Jordan Binnington last season and the organization has never looked back. If the club wants to bolster its lineup at the deadline, it could consider moving Allen and his $4.35 million cap hit.
Allen stopped 20 of 23 shots in a 4-3 overtime win over the Wild on Saturday.
It wasn't the most efficient performance by Allen, who was making just his third start of the season, and he'd definitely want Kevin Fiala's long-distance goal back in the second period. But he did enough to help the Blues pick up a win during Jordan Binnington's night off. In his three starts this season, Allen is 2-1-0 with a 3.72 GAA and .855 save percentage.
Allen will be in the visitors' crease for Saturday night's contest against the Wild.
Allen will be making just his third start of 2019-20. He owns a 1-1-0 record with a 4.17 GAA and .849 save percentage in two starts, not exactly great numbers to hitch your fantasy wagon to. The Blues are playing the second half of a back-to-back, meaning Allen will need to be on top of his game to give the visitors a chance to win Saturday.
Allen made 20 saves Saturday in a 5-2 loss to Montreal. He allowed four goals.
Allen drives fantasy owners mad. He's full of skill, but suffers from some malady that has completely eroded his game. Take the first goal of the second period; it came at the six second mark when Allen misplayed a shot that was going wide and banked it into his own net. He's now 1-1 with a nauseous 4.17 GAA and .849 save percentage. There's no way he should be in any fantasy net until he shows he can deliver you a .910ish save percentage. Allen's just a liability otherwise.
Allen will get the start for Saturday's matinee against Montreal, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Allen gave up four goals to Ottawa in his lone appearance of the season so far, but he still walked away with the win. Starter Jordan Binnington has gone winless in three games since then, so the Blues will turn to Allen in hopes of regaining some momentum here.
Allen made 25 saves in Thursday's 6-4 win over the Senators.
Allen gave up the only two goals of the first period, but he settled down after that and gave his team a chance to come back against the winless Senators. This underwhelming performance shows why Allen isn't a threat to the starting job Jordan Binnington pulled away from him last season.
Allen was the goalie in Thursday's morning skate, suggesting he'll get the start for that night's game in Ottawa, Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic reports.
This is a sensible time to get Allen his first action of the season, as the Senators had the league's worst record in 2018-19 and have lost their first two games of the new campaign. In the big picture, Allen remains the clear backup to Jordan Binnington.
Allen will start in goal and play the entire game Tuesday against the Stars, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Allen wasn't great in his preseason debut Friday against Winnipeg, surrendering two goals on 18 shots. The 29-year-old will hope to fare better in a matchup with a Dallas club that's only averaged one goal per game through its first four preseason contests, good for worst in the NHL.
