Video: Jake Allen’s highlight reel stick save

Feb 15, 2013, 10:02 PM EST

St. Louis Blues goalie Jake Allen earned a win in his first career start on Wednesday, but he looked shaky at times. There are two periods to go in the Blues’ Friday contest against the Calgary Flames, yet it’s unlikely he’ll top this stop, which could very well be a Save of the Year candidate:

Allen spurned T.J. Brodie on that play.

In case you’re wondering if the 22-year-old goalie could make some noise, Ken Hitchcock has had a knack with rookie call-ups before. He was behind the bench during Steve Mason‘s Calder Trophy year, after all.

It’s hasty to ponder such possibilities for Allen too seriously, but maybe St. Louis won’t be as nervous as expected with Jaroslav Halak on the mend.

    Jesus. He’s not kidding. That play’s a goal, any league, anytime. That was ridiculous.

    That save was ignorant.
