Blues’ backup goaltender Jake Allen took a graceful backseat to rookie sensation Jordan Binnington halfway through the regular season.
Not only is Allen still supporting Binnington in the playoffs, he’s also making a few saves of his own from his team’s bench.
In the second period of Game Two of the Stanley Cup Final, Allen sprung into action after Patrice Bergeron cleared the puck off the ice and towards his coaches’ and teammates’ heads.
Allen, without even a second thought, made a quick glove save, catching the puck out of midair. He then passed it over the glass and gave it to a young Blues fan sitting by the bench.
“Good quick glove by the backup goaltender,” the NBCSN commentators observed.
“Awesome job by Allen giving it to that young Blues fan as well,” the announcers continued.
Allen’s save was sensational, but let me know when he can do this with more flair and a forward’s glove.
