TSN: ‘Allen was the difference’ for the Blues.  After Patrik Laine put up a five-spot on the Blues the last time the two teams played, he was a focus for the Blues’ defence this time around but as TSN Hockey analyst Dave Poulin explains, it was Jake Allen who was the difference against the Jets.

TSN: Laine looking beyond goals to help Jets. After an electric November, Patrik Laine has been quiet since the start of December, failing to score in the month’s first three games. While goal scoring is what he’s known for, Laine knows that his impact can be felt all over the ice even though he isn’t scoring. Sara Orlesky explains.
