According to NHLN Halak re injured his groin (which we already knew) and they said that Allen will be recalled. So Halak must be going back on IR. I wonder if they tried to rush Halak back because of how bad Elliott has been.

Ouch. That's a big blow to this team if he's out for an extended period of time and Elliott doesn't turn it around. He played a good first period tonight, though. Made a couple of big saves, which he hadn't done AT ALL the last couple of games.
If Halak is out for awhile we are in deep trouble. Elliott cannot play this compacted schedule by himself, especially with how bad he's playing now. I like Allen but he is not ready yet, lets hope Halak is back soon.
All in all the Blues didn't play well, but they did keep shots to the outside. At this point we need to keep the quality of shots down and make the best of the breaks we get.

I don't believe the Kings are an "unstoppable juggernaut of a team". They turned it on when they needed to last year and on paper they have a solid team.
The only problem I have is that they beat the Blues at their own game.
