‘It’s huge’: Blues earn pivotal win over Kings

“The win featured what have been two of the recent hallmarks of the team’s success: Excellent play in goal and the team scoring first. The Blues have allowed just eight goals in the win streak and along with the shutout win at Colorado have taken a shutout in to the final three minutes two other times.”

Blues strong at even strength

“The pendulum has swung back to strong five-on-five play again for the Blues. Going into Monday night’s game with the Kings, 10 of their 13 goals in their four-game winning streak were at even strength and they had outscored their opponents 10-6 with no one in the penalty box.”

Jake Allen backstops Blues to crucial win over LA Kings

“Since Feb. 2, Allen has gone 9-6-0 and held a 1.96 goal-against average and .935 save percentage. Allen’s rise has essentially coincided with the Blues’ decision to fire former coach Ken Hitchcock on Feb. 1 along with goaltending coach Jimmy Corsi and replace the two with Yeo and Brodeur.”

Blues Vs. Kings Recap: Snake After Dark

“The Blues had a powerplay at the start of the period, but the most they could get out of it was a post. Then it was all Kings after that. However, much like the first period, Allen came to play in the second. The Kings had multiple chances early on, but couldn’t find their way on to the score sheet.”

Blues Get Rare Win at Los Angeles

“Other than Brown’s goal, Allen held the Kings in check. Facing a 21-shot barrage in the second, he was especially strong, keeping the Kings’ most dangerous line of Tanner Pearson, Jeff Carter and Tyler Toffoli from each converting chances during one brief and blistering stretch.”
