Interesting stat from Scott Cullen of TSN that Halak hasn't faced more than 23 shots in a game this season and hasn't recorded more than 20 saves in a game this season.

Based on his past comments, I think Halak is a netminder that would almost prefer seeing and feeling more pucks. I'm sure playing behind a team like the Blues is great in one respect but difficult in others as it seems Halak sometimes has trouble getting in any sort of rhythm like the one Kipper get in last night. And that is concerning b/c that workload simply won't come as long as Hitchcock is coaching.

I think that's why Allen has been so impressive. His physical ability to make those key saves once or twice a period and his ability to stay mentally focused when he isn't seeing a lot of rubber have been his greatest attributes as far as I'm concerned.
