Bruins @ Blues Preview: Can Bruins Close Trip With A Win?



Boston Bruins

Can the Boston Bruins close out their current four-game road trip with a win tonight in St. Louis?

The Bruins will play the pesky St. Louis Blues looking to snap a three-game losing streak and maybe even a three-game streak that has seen them go to extra time in the first three games of this roadie. The Bruins lost 4-3 in a shootout to the Colorado Avalanche on Monday and then 4-3 in overtime to the Arizona Coyotes the following night. They then went to Las Vegas and lost 2-1 in overtime to the Golden Knights.

One could argue that the glass is half full considering that the Bruins were able to take two of a potential four points from two Stanley Cup contenders like the Avalanche and the Golden Knights, and another point from a Coyotes team in the Wild Card hunt still. However, the Boston Bruins aren’t happy with that and want to finish this trip out with two points and a win.

“We know we can win games. We have a great group of guys and a leadership group that has done a great job,” Bruins forward Morgan Geekie told reporters after the loss to the Golden Knights. “It just speaks to the character of the guys in this room, and we’re not satisfied with this at all and know we got a lot more to give. So, when you look back on it, it’s good to get a point, but it still hurts, nonetheless. So, it’s good, I’m sure, at the end of the day, but a loss is a loss.”
