Halak Leaves Game 2 in Second Period
UPDATE (11:58 P.M.): The Blues have recalled goaltender Jake Allen from Peoria.

ST. LOUIS -- Blues goalie Jaroslav Halak departed Saturday night's game against the San Jose Sharks after a second-period collision with a teammate.

Defenseman Barret Jackman crashed into Halak after a sliding attempt to break up a pass play to San Jose's Martin Havlat 1:07 into the second period in Game 2 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

Halak went down, got to his knees and onto his skates without help and appeared to be staying in the game -- but then skated off on his own power to the Blues' dressing room.

He was replaced by Brian Elliott.

After the game, Blues Coach Ken Hitchcock told the media that Halak had a lower body injury but would travel with the team to San Jose for Games 3 and 4.

"We'll evaluate him tomorrow, take him on the trip and see how he feels," Hitchcock said.
