Kevin Shattenkirk believes the Blues have gotten too content and self-satisfied with their game and that has led to the recent struggles.

St. Louis has lost the last three games and been outscored 14-2 over the last seven periods. I think there's been a little bit of arrogance that's kind of crept into our game here, a little bit of complacency," Shattenkirk said. "Even (Thursday) night, we got that goal back at 2-1, we're just expecting things to fall into place for us because they did last year and we're kind of just sitting back waiting for it to happen instead of making it happen. ... We just don't want to put in the hard work that comes along with winning. That's it right there ... cheating those little details. You always hear about them and those little things are what ultimately makes up winning teams and what gets you to that next level."
