Blues Win, Jake Allen Hurt

via Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

The Blues got something to worry about when Allen didn’t come out on the ice for the second period. It appeared that he got hurt with about 3:20 to go in the first period. Allen was on the left side of his goal and started to move to his right following the puck. But the puck quickly reversed to the left, and Allen had to make an abrupt stop. Allen made a save a few seconds later and then dealt with 2½ minutes of Colorado power play the rest of the period, showing no signs of trouble.

But not long after the Blues got off the ice after the period, Nilsson got word that he would be going into goal. Otherwise, the injury took everyone by surprise. Pietrangelo said he didn’t realize Allen wasn’t playing until he got on the ice for the second period. Coach Ken Hitchcock said he not only didn’t know what the injury was but didn’t know when it happened. He said a further evaluation would come on Monday after the Blues got back to St. Louis.

The Blues did win the game over Colorado 5-1.
