Blues at Sharks GameDay Thread: Small fish, big pond

Jake Allen gets another start tonight as the Blues look to add to their winning streak.

NHL: St. Louis Blues at San Jose Sharks John Hefti-USA TODAY Sports

Don’t look now, but the Blues may have a goalie... tandem.

You thought I was going to say controversy, weren’t you? Please. Jake Allen is making back to back starts for the first time in ages, but that’s on the strength of a 35 save performance in the Blues’ 2-1 victory over the Edmonton Oilers. He’s played exceedingly well so far this season - why wouldn’t you want a tandem like Binnington and Allen right now?

If the team feels Binnington needs to rest for now, he probably needs to rest. It’s ok. It’s not a big deal. It’s the Sharks, anyway - Jake may or may not be tested tonight. San Jose’s lost eight of their last ten games and are well out of the playoff picture.

This is your GameDay Thread. Comment like you really think it’s time for Jumbo to hang them up.

Let’s do this. Let’s Go Blues.
