St. Louis Blues recall G Jake Allen from AHL Peoria.
The timing of Allen's recall is suspicious, considering Jaroslav Halak blew a 4-1 lead and allowed five goals against the Kings on Tuesday night. Allen made five appearances with the Blues while Halak was hurt, posting a 3-1-0 record, a 2.62 GAA and an .895 save percentage. Halak's backup, Brian Elliott, has been dreadful this year, but stopped seven of eight shots in 12 minutes after replacing Halak on Tuesday. It's unclear if the Blues plan to roster three goalies for the time being or whether Halak may have re-injured his groin Tuesday night. Stay tuned.
