Allen coughs up the shutout by allowing a goal from center ice with 10 seconds left.

That can't feel good.

St. Louis Blues goaltender Jake Allen probably felt he had this one in the bag, and one has to wonder if it may have led to this mistake.

Allen was well on his way to a shutout performance when out of nowhere with just 10 seconds left in the game, Minnesota Wild forward Mikko Koivu fired a shot from near center ice and beat Allen for a goal.

Allen was clearly stunned on the play and in his defense the puck did take one heck of a bounce right in front of him, but nonetheless this has to be an incredibly disappointing way to have your shutout busted with no time left in the game.
