ST. LOUIS - Jordan Binnington set a franchise record Thursday with a 7-3 victory against Philadelphia Flyers.

Binnington posted his 23rd win of the season, passing Blues goalie Jake Allen (22) for the most wins by a Blues rookie goaltender in franchise history.

Allen set the franchise record in the 2014-15 season, posting 22 wins in 37 games played. Binnington set the new record in 31 games.

"Talented guy over there," Binnington said of Allen after tying the record with last Monday's 3-2 shootout win against the Avalanche. "He's a pretty special goaltender. He was back-to-back all-rookie team. He's a great goalie and that's really nice to be recognized with him."

Binnington was named the NHL Rookie of the Month for both February and March, becoming the first goaltender since Steve Mason in 2008 to win rookie of the month honors in consecutive months.

This season, Binnington is 23-5-1 with a 1.89 goals-against average, a .927 save-percentage and five shutouts.
