Blues recall Allen from AHL

The St. Louis Blues on Thursday recalled goaltender Jake Allen from their American Hockey League team, the Chicago Wolves.

Allen is third in the AHL with a 2.17 goals-against average. In 23 games he's 14-7-2 with a .922 save percentage and two shutouts.

The 23-year-old made his NHL debut last season, going 9-4-1 in 15 games, with a 2.46 GAA and .905 save percentage. He led all NHL rookies in wins, GAA and save percentage.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
