As an interesting side note, Jake Allen's start on Thursday will be his fourth in six days.
That's of course including three AHL games before he was summoned by the Blues. "I don't mind it," Allen said. "You want to get into the net, you don't want to leave the net. I didn't even know it was four games in six nights to be honest. I get another chance and I'm just going to make the most of it. I didn't know if I'd get another opportunity this year and fortunately I did." All the same, if Allen seems a bit underwhelming on Thursday, fatigue might be the cause.
