Stastny scored a goal and contributed three assists in Monday's 5-2 win over the Penguins. It was very much the Paul Stastny show at Scottrade Center in this one, especially in the third period where he recorded three of his four points on the night. The former 78-point playmaker has been bothered by injuries for a good chunk of the year but has managed 23 points in 31 games, which should give him in all but the shallowest of leagues. Knock him down a few notches in the value department if your league counts shots on goal, though, as he's only got 54 despite rattling off five Monday.
Stastny (upper body) will return to action Thursday against the Hurricanes, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports. Stastny has missed the Blues' last two games with an upper-body injury, but returned to practice Wednesday, which was the first indication that the 30-year-old forward would likely be available for Thursday's tilt. Stastny, who has tallied 18 points (three goals, 15 assists) in 28 games this season, will likely slot back into the Blues' lineup as top-six forward against Carolina.
Stastny (upper body) participated in practice Wednesday, but remains questionable for Thursday's game against the Hurricanes, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports. Stastny's presence at practice certainly poses a positive sign, but it appears he's still not a guarantee to play Thursday. The team should provide an update at some point again following Thursday's morning skate, but his return doesn't appear too far off at the very least.
Stastny (upper body) said he will not play Tuesday night against the Devils, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports. It took the Blues until game day to officially rule out Stastny, suggesting that the injury is not too serious. His next chance to return will be Thursday for a home match against the Hurricanes.
Stastny (upper body) is still considered day-to-day and hasn't been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Devils, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Stastny skipped Sunday's game due to the upper-body injury, but hasn't been officially ruled out for Tuesday, indicating the issue isn' overly serious in nature. His status should be updated at some point again following morning skate, confirming his status one way or the other.
