Blues Place T.J. Oshie On IR, Call Up Cracknell And Allen (Again)

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

I hereby nominate Jake Allen's nickname to be Yoyo.

Remember when we all cried with anguish that the Blues had sent down Jake Allen to Peoria? Well, cry no more, because Allen's returned. Sure, it's because Jaroslav Halak tweaked his groin at the end of the second period last night, but still.

This isn't to diminish Brian Elliott's excellent performance in net Monday, not at all. But really, how many people believe that Allen belongs in Peoria? No one? Good.

Next injury to deal with is T.J. Oshie. Osh was hurt in the Blues' 4-2 loss to the LA Kings last week and sat out Monday's tilt. This probably isn't the best time for Oshie to go down, seeing as how the Blues next play the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday night in Chicago. Come to think of it, it kind of sucks that Halak's down too.

The Blues have lost both meetings against the Blackhawks so far this season, but will see them three times this final month.
