DALLAS - With an 38-save shutout on Monday night in Chicago, Blues goalie Jake Allen moved into a tie for second place in franchise history in shutouts.
Allen posted his 20th shutout as a Blue in Monday's 4-0 victory, pulling even with former Blues goaltender Jaroslav Halak.
Allen and Halak trail only Brian Elliott (25) for the most shutouts all-time as a Blue.
"It's cool. To get into the 20s now, let's see if I can get to 30 at some point in my career," Allen said. "Hopefully a few more to come in the future. It's a credit to not just me, but to a lot of the boys in front of me doing a lot of hard work. I still remember my first shutout against Phoenix in 2012 or 13. It's come a long way."

Earlier this season, Allen passed Curtis Joseph for second in franchise history in wins (138) and now trails only Mike Liut, who posted 151 victories while wearing the Blue Note.
