Canadiens' Jake Allen: Will serve as backup Wednesday
Allen (lower body) will serve as the backup goaltender for Wednesday's road contest against the Islanders, according to Patrick Friolet of RDS.
Allen, who was last in net March 27, has a 15-24-3 record, 3.55 GAA and .891 save percentage in 42 contests this season. Sam Montembeault will start Wednesday and Canadiens coach Martin St. Louis indicated that Montembeault will also get the nod for Montreal's season finale Thursday versus Boston.... See More ...

Canadiens' Jake Allen: Traveling with team
Allen (lower body) will make the trip for Wednesday's matchup with the Islanders, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Allen hasn't been confirmed as the starter but will at least be an option to serve as the backup against New York. With just 15 wins in 42 games this year, the 32-year-old netminder will miss the 20-win mark for the fifth consecutive season and is currently sporting a career-worst 3.55 GAA. Given his struggles, it seems unlikely the team will want to bring Allen back when he hits free agency this offseason.... See More ... See Less
Canadiens' Jake Allen: Unlikely to suit up
Allen (lower body) is listed among the Canadiens' scratches for Thursday's game versus the Capitals, per the NHL media site.
Allen is expected to miss his second straight game with the injury. Sam Montembeault will start Thursday, and Cayden Primeau will be the backup goalie.... See More ... See Less
Canadiens' Jake Allen: Out with lower-body injury
Allen will not be in the lineup against the Red Wings on Tuesday due to a lower-body issue.
Allen has just one win in his previous eight contests, posting a 1-6-1 record over that stretch. With just five games remaining in the season, Allen may have played in his final game of the 2022-23 campaign, though the team did designate him as day-to-day. In the meantime, Cayden Primeau will start against the Red Wings on Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
Canadiens' Jake Allen: Wins in shootout
Allen stopped 30 of 33 shots in a 4-3 shootout victory over the Sabres.
Allen was solid Monday, allowing three goals on 33 shots before prevailing in a shootout. The win snapped a seven-game losing streak for Allen as he improves to 15-24-3 with an .891 save percentage on the season. With Montreal looking toward the future, Allen could take a backseat to Sam Montembeault and Cayden Primeau down the stretch.... See More ... See Less
Canadiens' Jake Allen: Gets starting nod against Sabres
Allen will be between the road pipes versus Buffalo on Monday.
Allen has suffered seven straight losses, posting a 0-6-1 record and 4.88 GAA along the way. A matchup with a Sabres offense that is averaging 3.57 goals per game, the third highest in the NHL, doesn't exactly bode well for Allen getting back into the win column. Despite his slump, Allen continues to share the workload with Sam Montembeault.... See More ... See Less
Canadiens' Jake Allen: Another tough night
Allen made 17 saves in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Bruins.
Montreal actually out-shot Boston 31-21, but bad bounces and bad defensive play gave the Bruins an early 2-0 lead and the Habs never recovered. Allen remains winless in March, going 0-6-1 with a brutal 4.88 GAA and .853 save percentage, but with his team playing for nothing but better positioning in the draft lottery, the netminder will likely continue to see regular work over the final weeks....

Canadiens' Jake Allen: In goal Thursday
Allen will get the starting nod on the road against the Bruins on Thursday, Marc Antoine Godin of The Athletic reports.
Allen has conceded six goals in each of his previous two contests, posting a combined .636 save percentage and 15.84 GAA. In fact, the veteran backstop is winless in six straight, having posted an 0-5-1 record over that stretch. With only a few games left this season, Allen almost certainly will miss the 20-win mark for the fifth straight campaign.... See More ... See Less
Canadiens' Jake Allen: Brutal night in relief
Allen took the loss Thursday as the Canadiens were downed 9-5 by the Panthers, replacing Sam Montembeault early in the first period but then giving up six goals on 18 shots in a little over a period's worth of ice time.
Montembeault gave up three quick goals to get the hook, but Allen's performance was bad enough that Habs coach Martin St. Louis was forced to turn the team's crease into a revolving door and put Montembeault back in. Allen is having a disastrous March, coughing up six goals in two straight appearances and going 0-5-1 in six games with a 5.03 GAA and .858 save percentage. Both Montreal goalies are radioactive for fantasy purposes right now -- the team's surrendered 21 goals in its last three games -- but Allen in particular cannot be used until he offers proof he's snapped out of this funk....

Canadiens' Jake Allen: Pulled after surrendering six goals
Allen allowed six goals on 15 shots before being pulled from Montreal's 8-4 loss to Colorado on Monday.
Allen left the game early in the second period with Montreal down 6-1. Sam Montembeault stepped in, but the Canadiens couldn't climb out of the hole, and Allen was charged with the loss. The 32-year-old has a 14-22-3 record, 3.43 GAA and .895 save percentage in 39 contests in 2022-23. He's lost his last five outings while surrendering 18 goals on 151 shots in that span....

Canadiens' Jake Allen: First player off Monday
Allen was the first goalie to leave the ice Monday, Avalanche play-by-play announcer Conor McGahey reports, indicating he'll be in goal versus Colorado.
Allen has lost four straight contests, posting a 0-3-1 record and 2.99 GAA in those contests. At this point, the veteran netminder could struggle to reach the 20-win mark for the fifth straight season, having last reached that mark back in 2017-18 when with the Blues.... See More ... See Less
Canadiens' Jake Allen: Not enough support from mates
Allen made 34 saves in a 3-1 loss to New Jersey on Saturday.
He allowed two goals in a strong performance. He's doing his part, but a young squad in front of him hasn't been able to give him the support he needs. Allen's last win was Feb. 28, and he's 0-3-1 in four starts since then.... See More ... See Less
Canadiens' Jake Allen: Between pipes Saturday
Allen will defend the home crease versus New Jersey on Saturday,
Allen is 0-2-1 in his last three starts, giving up 10 goals on 100 shots. Overall, Allen is 14-20-3 with a 3.35 GAA and .898 save percentage. He will have a tough matchup versus New Jersey, who is third in the overall NHL standings with 90 points in 64 games.... See More ... See Less
Canadiens' Jake Allen: Falls to Carolina in shootout
Allen turned aside 36 of 39 shots in regulation and overtime and three of six shootout attempts in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Hurricanes.
Montreal held a 3-2 lead late in the third period, but Allen's defense left Jesper Fast unattended on his doorstep to bang home the rebound on a Brett Pesce point shot, sending the game to OT. Allen has been sharp overall since the All-Star break despite a lack of consistent help from his teammates, going 4-3-1 over eight starts with a 2.49 GAA and .923 save percentage.... See More ...

Canadiens' Jake Allen: Gets starting nod versus Canes
Allen will be between the home pipes against Carolina on Tuesday, Marc Antoine Godin of The Athletic reports.
Since returning from injury, Allen has gone 4-4-1 with a .911 save percentage in nine contests. Considering his supporting case, the veteran should feel pretty good about securing at least a point in more than half of those contests. While Allen should continue to play the majority of the Habs' games moving forward, Sam Montembeault figures to get a few looks as well and won't be limited to just back-to-backs.... See More ...

Canadiens' Jake Allen: Yields four goals in loss
Allen stopped 24 of 28 shots in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Golden Knights.
Former Blues teammate Ivan Barbashev tallied twice against Allen in the contest. With a 2-3-0 record and 15 goals allowed across his last five outings, Allen is holding his own behind a lackluster defense. The 32-year-old is now at 14-20-2 with a 3.36 GAA and an .897 save percentage through 36 starts this season. The Canadiens return to Montreal for a difficult homestand that starts Tuesday versus the Hurricanes.... See More ... See Less

Canadiens' Jake Allen: Gives up three goals in loss
Allen gave up three goals on 33 shots in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Kings.
Allen had won four of his last five outings before the Kings beat him Thursday. The 32-year-old gave up a pair of goals in a span of 1:03 in the third period, and the Canadiens' offense couldn't cover that damage. He's now at 14-19-2 with a 3.34 GAA and an .898 save percentage through 35 appearances this season. The Canadiens are back in action Friday versus the Ducks, so Sam Montembeault will likely get that start, while Allen could be between the pipes Sunday in Vegas.... See More ... See Less

Canadiens' Jake Allen: Excellent in Tuesday's win
Allen stopped 38 of 39 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Sharks.
It took the Canadiens' offense until the third period to get on the board, but Allen's strong play throughout allowed them to rally for the win. The 32-year-old has won four of his last five starts while allowing just 10 goals over that span. He improved to 14-18-2 with a 3.35 GAA and an .897 save percentage through 34 contests. The Canadiens have a back-to-back up next -- they visit the Kings on Thursday and the Ducks on Friday, so Allen and Sam Montembeault should each get a start later in the week.... See More ...
