Allen led the Blues to an overtime win with 51 saves, on 52 Minnesota Wild shots.
On this episode of the Blues NHL Podcast, Jim is joined by Jamie Rivers and Darin Kimble to break down the heartstopping series opening win over the Minnesota Wild. The St. Louis Blues entered Xcel Energy Center with high hopes of stealing Game 1. Jake Allen stole the show (and the game) just long enough for Joel Edmundson to bury an overtime winner for the 2-1 victory. Can Allen carry this team on a long playoff run? Plus, the guys take questions from the Blues “Twitterverse” where fans are happy with the victory, but worried about the Blues ability to handle Minnesota’s consistent offensive zone pressure. Join us for this playoff edition of the Blues NHL Podcast!
