Things haven't gone perfectly on this road trip, but St. Louis can get going again with a victory over Los Angeles.
The St. Louis Blues have certainly had their ups and downs on this recent road trip through the country, and they'll have their hands full on Thursday night as they face the Los Angeles Kings. St. Louis is coming off a disappointing 4-3 loss against the Anaheim Ducks in its most recent game.
While the Blues' road trip started fine with a victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets, the team has been somewhat disjointed over the past few games. After losing just once over a ten-game span, St. Louis has lost three times over its past four games while giving up a surprising amount of offense.
Generally the league's most stifling defensive unit, the Blues gave up four goals to the Ducks.
