Shattenkirk took three shifts in the first period before leaving for the locker room with 15:27 remaining after colliding with Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin as he attempted to impede a Washington scoring chance.

Shattenkirk has eight goals and 40 points for St. Louis this season. He represented the Blues at the 2015 Honda NHL All-Star Game.
