(Sports Network) - The Boston Bruins try to snap a two-game losing streak this afternoon when they welcome the Nashville Predators to FleetCenter.
St. Louis' Doug Weight lasered home a wrist shot at 4:18 of overtime, as the Blues continued their mastery of the Bruins with a 4-3 win. Keith Tkachuk sent the game into the extra session when he scored with just 29 seconds to go in regulation.
Joe Thornton registered a goal and an assist for Boston, which has dropped two straight after winning five of six. Martin Lapointe and Nick Boynton also found the back of the net for the Bruins, who have earned a point in seven of their last eight games (5-1-0-2).
With 29 points, Boston trails Philadelphia by one for the best mark in the Eastern Conference. The Bruins are two points ahead of Toronto atop the Northeast Division.
The Bruins, 4-1-2-1 at home, will host Phoenix on Sunday.
Nashville, meanwhile, has won two straight and six of its last eight, including Wednesday's 4-2 home triumph against Columbus. Scott Walker, who returned from a groin injury, scored on the power play and added a short- handed goal to lead the Predators to the win.
Adam Hall and Vladimir Orszagh also scored for Nashville, which has won three of its last four games (3-1). Tomas Vokoun made 26 saves for the win.
Including today, the Preds play four of their next five on the road. They'll host Buffalo on Saturday before visiting Carolina four days later.
Nashville snapped a two-game series losing streak versus Boston last February and is 3-2-1 in the last six meetings.
