The Bruins will once again try to escape from losing three games in a row, but they will have to play and beat the St. Louis Blues to keep from falling into that trend.

Tonight the Bruins hit the fourth game in their six-game road trip, playing tonight in St. Louis where they will take on the Blues.

So far the Bruins are 1-2 on this extended trip, winning in Montreal in overtime and then losing to both Winnipeg and Minnesota.

They continue to be held under fire for their performance as of late, and they have tried everything from switching forwards around to different line combinations to pulling players up from Providence. Most recently they called up Carter Camper from the AHL.

But, it seems like the one thing they are missing a lot of recently is forward Nathan Horton, who hasn't even started skating again since he fell back in his concussion recovery, according to head coach Claude Julien.

They are clearly missing a force in front of the net that can get the rebounds and put them in the back of the net, and they don't have enough of that on the team right now. Horton was that guy. There's a reason he has 17 goals this season.

But they will have to try and find a solution that works heading into tonight, because they have been blanked in four of their nine games so far this month.

The puck drops at 8 p.m. and the game will be broadcast live on NESN and aired on 98.5 The Sports Hub.
