Kevin Shattenkirk says that last year’s first round playoff loss to the Chicago Blackhawks was a wakeup call for the Blues.

"I think last year really woke us all up as players," said Shattenkirk. "When we lost to Chicago, we felt like it was really on our shoulders. Everything was put into place for us to do well and to succeed, and we didn’t perform as players. We didn’t get it done." With a strong young core and the addition of Paul Stastny, the Blues should have another strong season ahead of them.

Kevin Shattenkirk believes the "last few seasons have been a learning process" for the St. Louis Blues.

"We know have the pieces in place to be successful," he said. "It's just a question of us going out there and doing it." Shattenkirk praised the chemistry and camaraderie that the team shares and he feels that the team's off-season acquisitions will experience it quickly as well. The Blues were bounced from the 2014 playoffs in the first round by a tough Chicago team, but they remain top contenders going into this season.

Coming up short in the 2014 playoffs hit Kevin Shattenkirk harder than the Blues' 2013 defeat.

"Not that we made excuses last year, but we took steps last year I think and this year we took steps backwards," Shattenkirk said. "For guys like us to be in that same position, if we're going to learn from it, we're going to have to change and do something about it ... win two more games and win the series, close the series out and we didn't do it. It's disappointing and it falls on our shoulders." St. Louis has now lost in the first round in back-to-back years despite their talent. The good news is that the Blues are young enough that their window of opportunity to seriously compete for the Stanley Cup isn't fading yet.
