Allen is expected to start Saturday vs. the Canadiens.
Allen gave up four goals on 29 shots in the Blues win in Ottawa on October 10th. This afternoon he is expected to make his first regular-season start at home since January 8th. He was 8-9-2 with a 3.65 GAA and .878 SV% in 20 starts at Enterprise Center last year.
The Blackhawks recalled Kirby Dach from his AHL conditioning stint.
Dach was the third overall pick this summer and the 18-year-old centre failed to record a point in his three-game conditioning stint with Rockford (AHL). There is no word whether or not Dach will make his NHL debut on Sunday.
Bischoff will make his NHL debut on Saturday.
Bischoff was called up just over a week ago and will replace fellow rookie Nic Hague in the lineup on Saturday. Bischoff has registered 11 goals and 28 assists (39 points) in 136 career AHL games.
The Wild have recalled Gabriel Dumont from Iowa (AHL).
Dumont has had a nice start in the AHL, posting three goals and two assists (five points) in five games. Dumont could make his Wild debut on Sunday, filling in for Joel Eriksson Ek. Dumont has four goals and five assists (nine points) in 87 career NHL games with Montreal, Tampa Bay and Ottawa.

Quick was the first goalie off of the ice at the Kings' morning skate.
The Wild have placed Mats Zuccarello (lower-body) on IR.
The Wild lost Joel Eriksson Ek for at least a week, so they moved Zuccarello to IR to open up a roster spot to recall Gabriel Dumont from Iowa (AHL). There has been no indication when the Wild expect to have Zuccarello back.
Eriksson Ek (lower-body) is expected to miss 1-to-2 weeks.
Eriksson Ek was spotted leaving the arena in a walking boot on Thursday but is only expected to miss at least one week. The Wild recalled Gabriel Dumont from Iowa (AHL) to replace Eriksson Ek in the lineup.
Holtby will start Sunday in Chicago.
Folin will be back in the Canadiens lineup on Saturday.
Folin was a healthy scratch on Thursday but will replace Cale Fleury (undisclosed) in the lineup on Saturday. Folin has just one assist while averaging 15:02 TOI/gm in four games this season.
Fleury (undisclosed) will come out of the Canadiens lineup on Saturday.
Fleury is dealing with an undisclosed injury and will not play Saturday afternoon in St. Louis. Christian Folin will draw back into the lineup on Montreal’s third pair.
Price will start Saturday afternoon in St. Louis.
Price stopped all 17 shots that he faced in the Canadiens shutout win over the Wild on Thursday. It was about as easy of a shutout as you will see in the NHL and marked the first game this season that Price has allowed less than three goals. The veteran netminder has a tough afternoon matchup in St. Louis and Price comes in at 3-2-1 with a 2.79 GAA and .906 SV% in six starts.

Demko led the Canucks onto the ice for warmups.
Demko allowed three goals on 37 shots in the Canucks win in St. Louis on Thursday. With Jacob Markstrom away for personal reasons, Demko started the last two games and went 2-0-0 while allowing just four goals on 64 shots (.938 SV%). Markstrom returned to practice on Friday but the Canucks will stick with Demko this afternoon before turning to Markstrom on Sunday.
Fleury will start Saturday in Pittsburgh.
Fleury allowed two goals on 39 shots in the Golden Knights win over the Senators on Thursday. Fleury has won three of his last four starts while posting a 2.69 GAA and .927 SV%. Since going to Vegas, Fleury has faced his former team three times, going 2-1-0 with a 3.02 GAA and .910 SV%.
Greiss will likely start Saturday in Columbus.
Greiss allowed two goals on 23 shots in the Islanders win over the Blues on Monday. Greiss and Semyon Varlamov continue to split starts and tonight is Greiss’ turn in the rotation. He has started the season 2-1-0 with a 2.28 GAA and .925 SV% in his first three starts and should be a great option against a Blue Jackets team that is in the bottom-5 in scoring and on the tail-end of a back-to-back.
The Predators have recalled Yakov Trenin from Milwaukee (AHL).
Trenin was a second-round pick of the Predators in 2015 and he has made it to the NHL after 126 AHL games. Trenin has had a hot start to the season, scoring four goals with one assist in three games with Milwaukee.
The Predators have recalled Miikka Salomaki from Milwaukee (AHL).
Salomaki started the year in Milwaukee, where he had one goal and one assist in three games. He had three goals and four assists (seven points) in 37 games with the Predators a season ago.
The Predators have sent Daniel Carr to Milwaukee (AHL).
Carr cleared waivers earlier in the week but remained with the Predators because Filip Forsberg is banged up. Miikka Salomaki has been recalled to take Carr's spot on the roster.
Andersen will start Saturday vs. the Bruins.
Andersen allowed two goals on 29 shots in the Maple Leafs’ win over the Wild last Tuesday. Andersen has won his last two starts while stopping 52 of 56 shots (.929 SV%) and will make his seventh start on Saturday night. The 30-year-old was 1-1-0 while giving up eight goals on 68 shots in his two regular-season starts vs. the Bruins last year.
Hischier (upper-body) will not play on Saturday.
Hischier remains day-to-day and will miss his second straight game with an upper-body ailment. With Hischier out again, Jack Hughes will remain on the Devils' top-line with Taylor Hall and Kyle Palmieri.
