ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Blues placed forward T.J. Oshie on injured reserve with a lower body injury and recalled rookie goalie Jake Allen under emergency conditions after one day at Peoria, Ill., of the AHL.
Allen replaces Jaroslav Halak, who injured his groin in a 4-1 victory at Minnesota on Monday night. Forward Adam Cracknell was recalled to replace Oshie, who was hurt in the first period Monday.
Oshie has seven goals and 13 assists in 30 games. The 22-year-old Allen is 8-3 with a 2.45 goals-against average and .906 save percentage with two shutouts.
Cracknell has two assists and two penalty minutes with St. Louis.
For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
