DENVER - Blues goalie Jake Allen left Sunday’s game against the Colorado Avalanche with an apparent injury.
Allen stopped all 11 shots he faced in the first period but did not return to the game following the first intermission.
During a bench interview on NBC Sports Network, Blues Head Coach Ken Hitchcock said Allen was hurt. After the game, Hitchcock said Allen would be evaluated tomorrow.
Anders Nilsson replaced Allen at the start of the second period and made 19 saves in the Blues' 5-1 victory.
