Watch Red Wings’ Tatar welcome Blues’ Allen to the NHL

Feb 13, 2013, 11:15 PM EDT

St. Louis Blues goalie Jake Allen has seen a little NHL action before, but Wednesday’s NBC Sports Network rivalry game against the Detroit Red Wings marks his first start.

It didn’t exactly begin very well, as Tomas Tatar scored this saucy goal on the Red Wings’ first shot:

Allen managed to hang in there, however, and the Blues eventually won the game 4-3 in overtime.

The 22-year-old goalie won’t get much time to bask in the glory of that win, either, as NHL.com’s Lou Korac reports that he’ll remain in net against the Calgary Flames on Friday.

    impressed by the resolve after the shaky start by the D and Allen. This is getting back to the hockey that we have been seeing from the Blues. The redwings of course played a great game… Datsyuk just messing with Allen on that behind the net shot.

    What on earth is Pierre talking about at the very beginning of this clip? It sounds like he says “…a legendary program from the vagina pads.”

      “Regina Caps”

      He’s talking about the Regina’s — the capital of Saskatchewan, a Canadian province — hockey team, which are named the Capitals.

        Interesting. Thanks for the clarification. Pierre and Doc should probably have been talking about the actual NHL teams who were playing in THIS contest though; not some irrelevant minor league BS. If they had done that, they probably wouldn’t have botched the faceoff play calling leading up to the Tatar goal. But that’s about par for the course with that broadcasting team. They’re more interested in feeding us mindless drivel about what team so and so played for when he was 10 years old and how that team’s coach’s dog only had 3 legs, half a tail and one blue eye. Or some other irrelevant BS about a healthy scratch player for Montreal way back when, who ate hot dogs in the press box before a game one time and then got called on to play when there was a pre-game injury. Then they can laugh laugh laugh….oh! And a goal by Tatar!!!

        The team is actually the Regina Pats and they aren’t really that legendary. As far as junior teams in the WHL go, they are very mediocre and consistently miss the playoffs. I don’t think they have won a Memorial Cup since the early 70s.
