Allen was the last goalie to leave the ice surface in morning practice. Head coach Claude Julien confirmed the information moments later during a video conference with reporters.
Carey Price had started the Habs first two games and was particularly effective blocking 34 of 35 Oilers shots in a 5-1 victory on Saturday. But Julien indicated that he would follow, for the moment, the plan initially established about the division of the job between the two masked men.
However, the experienced instructor conceded in the same breath that the plan was not set in stone for the future.
“I’m going to give the same answer as every year: we have a plan for the season and then we go one week at a time, depending on what happens,” said Julien. You never know when an injury may strike and force you to change your plans. There are adjustments along the way. Every year, it’s been hard to stick to that plan. ”
Allen played his first seven seasons in the National Hockey League (NHL) with the St. Louis Blues, including winning the Stanley Cup in 2019. In 2019-20, he played in 24 games, showing a record of 12 -6-3, a goals against average of 2.15 and a save rate of .927.
Changes in Edmonton
On Saturday, the CH found the back of the net in all situations. In fact, three goals were scored on equal strengths, one on the power play and another on the power play.
Based on this result, Oilers head coach Dave Tippett has made a number of changes to his roster. He notably excluded defenders Ethan Bear and Caleb Jones from the formation, who respectively finished the last duel with differentials of -2 and -1.
“We have to defend ourselves better as a group,” said Tippett. Our squad wasn’t good enough in the last game and we made some changes to see if we can improve. We need that [Bear] playing better and we have some quality guys ready to play. So we made a change. ”
Redo the blow
The question will be whether the CH will be able to stop, once again, the two-headed Oilers monster of Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl. Indeed, the Bleu-Blanc-Rouge had limited the duo to one help, that of McDavid on the net of Slater Koekkoek in the middle of the third period.
On loan to the reserve squad for accounting purposes, defender Alexander Romanov is expected to be at his post on Sunday.
Thus, after losing to Toronto in its first game of the season, CH now has three points in two games and are second in the North section.
For their part, the Oilers are sixth, with a victory in three duels.
