It’s been a strange start to the Nhl Playoffs for the defending champions, who’ve lost their first five games, including two overtime losses. Their —4 goal differential doesn’t bode well for a deep playoff run, and goaltender Jordan Binnington, who took the Blues to greatness last season, seems to be struggling at the worst possible time. Fortunately for them, Jake Allen has stepped in and performed exceedingly well, making 61 saves with four goals in his three postseason games up to this point—and most importantly, pulling St. Louis out of their rut with two wins.
