Blues’ Goalies

More than halfway into the season, the two Blues goalies have held opponents to the fewest goals in the NHL.

Forty six games in, goalies Jake Allen and Jordan Binnington have been one of the most deadly tandems in the NHL. Jordan Binnington, the regular starter, has one of the lowest goals against average in the National Hockey League, at 2.22.

“As a group, they have been the best in hockey, no questions asked,” senior Ethan Seymore said.

Likewise, Allen’s goals against average sits at 2.11. Their save percentages both sit in the top ranks as well; Allen has a .941 save percentage, while Binnington’s is at .955. All but one of Jake Allen’s starts have come on the road. Speaking of the road, Allen’s 2.00 goals against average on the road since Craig Berube took over is the fifth best in hockey. Additionally, his save percentage tops the circuits in the time period. Binnington has continued his stellar play; his play on the road is worse than Allen’s, making Allen’s road starts paramount to the Blues’ success. 

“Do not let Allen play at home,” senior Jacob Justice said

The dominance of both of the goaltenders has led the Blues to one of their best starts in franchise history. They lead the Western Conference in points and have the fewest goals against in the NHL.

“They’re coming back for the Stanley Cup,” senior Connor Price said.

Binnington is currently being voted on by fans to be the All-Star Game captain.
