Berube makes unorthodox moves in shaking up all four Blues lines

Mired in a three-game losing streak and, more significantly, stuck in a scoring rut where the team hasn't scored more than three non-empty net goals in a regulation game in three weeks, Blues coach Craig Berube is giving his offense a shake on Monday. Berube changed all four of his lines, and there were unorthodox moves all around: Tyler Bozak, almost exclusively a center in his NHL career, is moving to the wing; Robert Thomas, naturally a center but mostly a wing in his brief NHL career, is going to the middle; and the fourth line, the one redeeming unit on the offense, was broken up, with Klim Kostin moving in and Oskar Sundqvist joining the third line. "Generate some five-on-five scoring," Berube said. The Blues had a season-high 38 shots on goal in Saturday's 4-1 loss to Anaheim.
