VANCOUVER - Jake Allen will start in goal for the St. Louis Blues when they get back on the ice Monday against the Vancouver Canucks (9 p.m. CT, FSMW, 101 ESPN) following an eight-day break for the bye week / NHL All-Star Game.
Allen getting the start will give Jordan Binnington, who played in his first NHL All-Star Game last weekend, a chance to rest ahead of back-to-back games to begin the team's four-game road trip this week.
In addition, Colton Parayko will return to the lineup after missing seven games with an upper-body injury. Parayko was skating alongside Jay Bouwmeester in the morning skate in Vancouver. Carl Gunnarsson is expected to sit out to make room for Parayko's return.
Sammy Blais, who is close to returning to the lineup, will not play against the Canucks.
