Jake Allen's post saves him from Bernier-level embarrassment

Jake Allen avoided a Jonathan Bernier redux situation on Friday thanks to a lucky goalpost that saved him from a neutral zone goal.

Jake Allen better give him goalposts an extra tap before his next game.

The St. Louis Blues goaltender dodged embarrassment of epic proportions on Friday when a wobbly golf shot of a dump-in nearly skipped past him and into the net.

Allen stood straight-legged while the puck came in and skipped through his feet before bouncing off the post.

The lazy lob-in came off the stick of Carolina's Brett Bellemore with under seven minutes remaining in a 2-2 game.

The Blues won the game 3-2 in a shootout.

So be gone, ghost of Vesa Toskala. You have no power here.
