St. Louis Blues head coach Craig Berube wasn't impressed with his team's work ethic following a 2-1 shootout loss to the San Jose Sharks on Wednesday night.
"We have a lot of guys that aren't skating and aren't competing hard enough," Berube said in his postgame press conference.
The Blues' seven penalties in the contest didn't sit well with the bench boss.
"Yeah, PK killed off seven penalties, I mean two 5-on-3s. It's ridiculous, the penalties. We can't go to the box that much," he said.
St. Louis was arguably the better team at 5-on-5, owning 58% of the shot attempts and 57% of the scoring chances, according to Natural Stat Trick. However, the Sharks produced 66% of the expected goals and outshot the Blues 38-23 at all strengths.
The loss dropped St. Louis to 2-1-1 on the season.
