St. Louis goaltender Curtis Sanford stopped 32-of-34 shots in Monday's loss while the Blues went 0-for-5 on the power play.

The Bruins' season started with an 8-3 loss to Florida on Friday, but they rebounded with a 3-2 victory over Tampa Bay on Saturday. Boston, which is in the midst of a season-opening five-game road trip, was denied a second straight victory when it dropped a 4-1 decision to the Atlanta Thrashers on Wednesday.

P.J. Axelsson scored the Bruins' lone goal at 5:14 of the second period. Boston went 1-for-8 on the power play.

One of three clubs that has not won a game, St. Louis has only five goals this season.
