CH decision: Jake Allen just received a solid slap in the face and it's causing a stir
BY MARCO MARCH 21, 2023 (1:01 PM)
The Habs have just announced that Samuel Montembeault will be the starting goalie tonight against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
This is a first for the Tricolore this season, so the Quebec goalie will get his fourth straight start, even if Jake Allen is healthy.
It seems that there is a change in mentality with the CH, as the alternation system seems to have definitely taken the edge.
In 30 games this season, Montembeault has a 3.36 GAA and a .904 SV%, and is 13-14-3.
In 40 games this season, Allen has a 14-23-3 record. He has a 3.56 GAA and a .892 SV%.
It looks like Martin St. Louis is leaning more and more towards trusting Monty for the Habs' number one goalie role.
