Jake Allen has 26 saves for 6th shutout, Blues beat Lightning 2-0
ST. LOUIS (AP) – Jake Allen stopped 26 shots for his sixth career shutout as the St. Louis Blues beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-0 on Tuesday night.
Scott Gomez and Troy Brouwer scored as the Blues beat the Lightning for the fourth straight time, and sixth in the last seven meetings.
Ben Bishop, who was teammates with Allen on Peoria of the AHL for two seasons, had 22 saves for the Lightning.
Gomez gave the Blues the lead with 4:01 left in the first as he tipped in a long shot from rookie defenseman Colton Paayko past Bishop. It was his first goal with St. Louis and the 181st of his career.
Brouwer added an empty-netter with 41 seconds left in the game.
