Blues recall Allen, place Oshie on IR

The St. Louis Blues have recalled goaltender Jake Allen and placed forward T.J. Oshie on injured reserve, the team announced Tuesday.

Forward Adam Cracknell also was recalled from Peoria of the American Hockey League.

Allen has been recalled under emergency conditions due to goaltender Jaroslav Halak’s lower body injury, which he suffered during the first period in the Blues' 4-1 win against the Minnesota Wild on Monday night.

Allen has appeared in 12 games with the Blues this season, posting an 8-3-0 record, 2.45 goals-against average and a .906 save percentage.

Oshie has dressed in 30 games this season, tying for fifth on the club with 20 points (seven goals).

Cracknell has dressed in eight games for the Blues this season, posting two assists.

We've got to find a way to win a game. He's played well in the minors, now he gets his opportunity. We tried [with Jonathan Bernier]. The way I look at it, you get opportunities and you make the most of it. That's what [James Reimer] did. Now another opportunity is here and Sparks ... you gotta grab it. Is he ready? We'll find out.
