Jake Allen had a remarkable playoff run, with a .935 save percentage and he came into the playoffs hot, winning 11 of his final 15 regular season games. Yet the Blues, who should have beaten Nashville, failed to generate offense and killed their momentum with ill-advised penalties.
The Blues can build a winner around Allen.
